Brilliant is all I would say. Amazingly crisp pictures.

What software you use to process these and What body(s) are you using Robi?

Excellent pics Robi,
As the saying goes "A picture is worth thousand words" your pics are simply awesome. They convey the true character/habitat/climate/wilderness etc of the place and am truly amazed.

Till now, I thought that those super quality action pics of wild life was NGC photographer's relm, but my myth is shattered...

rated 5 *. Thanks for sharing.

Oh dear you have surpassed all my expectations and gone to a different level altogether !!! It might be the first on team-bhp to see someone busy updating a thread on his wedding day

For all the readers here: Robi got married on 8th March 2012 and I was fortunate to be part of the 4 days event at his home town. I take this opportunity to wish him and his beautiful wife a "Very Happy & Everlasting life together" !!

Thumbs up Re: Bears, Volcanoes & what not, Far East Russia: Photologue

Amazing stuff sir. 5 stars as soon as I saw the captures of Orcas. I'm actually staying back after time in office to look at this TL.

I know the trip was mainly centred around the Bears but do you have more captures of the Killer Whales? I have been quite fond of them ever since I saw Free Willy

Edit - Just read the post above. The Pictures can wait, Congratulations on the wedding.

DAY 9
Sorry folks there has been a very long delay in completing this photologue as I was busy with some personal matter for the last couple of months.

Anyway coming back to the photologue, Day 9 was the last day of the trip and we started on our trip back to Petropavlosk-Kamchatksky early morning

On our way we came across some seal families (guess its called a pod of seals) and managed to make some images of them playing around. Finally after a few more sigthings of the orca’s we reached PKC and headed straight to the airport to catch our flight to Moscow (the 10hr Aeroflot flight was a pain)
Yet again we had to board another Aeroflot flight back home from Moscow.

Hope you guys had fun going to the trip report. It was a trip of a lifetime for me and hope to do it again sometime in winter

Thanks for viewing!

PS: I do have a lot of bear images from the trip which I have not posted yet. I shall do so in the coming days.

So what exactly happened during your flights on Russian airlines? You have mentioned many times now that you didn't enjoy the trip that much.

Well the Aeroflot service was horrible with people getting caught for smoking multiple times..then there was no Inflight entertainment at all and the food was terrible
Overall its one of my worst flight experience till date

A couple of bear images

Lost for choice
