Traveled about 6000 miles

Hey guys although im pretty new here its been awhile since ive been on since in the last 3 weeks I've driven/flown a combination of about 6000 miles to alaska through canada and back and then around alaska. Since I got my new camera and am just starting working on my "photography skills" I figured I'd post some up and show you guys a couple of the animals/scenery I saw and some attempts at up close pictures... Let me know what ya think or if you have any advice for future picture taking

and all of these pictures are straight off the camera without any editing

Thanks, It's 3m blue painters tape... I put it on the front for the 2500 mile drive from Spokane, Washington to Fairbanks, Alaska. Protected it from rock chips and made tearing off the bugs really easy haha. . .

Thank you! no not at all, I just bought the camera and am moving to fairbanks to go to the university of fairbanks but then flew back to spokane for a basketball tournament then to Juneau Alaska to visit family then back to fairbanks so thats where all the traveling came from.

Ideally anytime in the summer, although it's beautiful in the winter as well. Fairbanks and northern alaska get really cold in the winter like weeks at a time 30 below, but Juneau never gets that cold. Juneau is probably the most beautiful part of alaska I've been to so far which is where all the scenic pictures were took. Actually most of the wildlife I saw was through canada on the way up. Although if you want to see tons of bald eagles/go fish/see bears southeast alaska is your best bet...

They don't really do it for me either after seeing so many, although I did see two fighting in the air while I was up there that was awesome to see but unfortunately failed to get any good pictures of it

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.
