Dispatch from Alaska: Flying Low on the Copper River Delta

Spent the day exploring the Copper River Delta's shallow passages and sloughs by air boat. Very strange boats--the pilots head for the shallowest water which left me leaning towards the center of the channel for the first few minutes!

My Nikon Coolpix is apparently not waterproof. I got some very interesting effects with a little fog inside the lens...

It rained hard all day, but it was still very beautiful out on the Delta. The cloud lifted just enough at the end of the day to see some of the mountains and glaciers that make this place famous...well, that and the salmon. More on that in a future dispatch.
