Helicopter tours and great scenic photography

Juneau, Alaska helicopter tour to four glaciers - Juneau IcefieldMore and more often, I hear from travelers who, while on cruises, and land based trips, are planning to take helicopter tours at their ports of call and destinations, and convert the great views they see into wonderful images with their cameras.

Helicopter touring can provide travelers with spectacular views, amazing photographic opportunities, and a chance to visit venues unreachable by other means.

Two great places for helicopter touring are in our 49th and 50th states; Alaska and Hawaii. I have two favorite helicopter tours, one in each location.

Photography Exhibition: The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Julia Margaret Cameron

Julia Margaret Cameron,  Christabel, 1866The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York City, is one of the premier art museums in the world. When they have a photographic exhibition, you can be sure of its extremely high quality and its careful composition and construction. The Julia Margaret Cameron exhibition will be no exception.

This exhibition will run from August 19, 2013 through January 5, 2014.
