Scroll down for photos

25 new images added. Using new Nikon D300 + 24 - 70 f2.8 lens. Processed from 12 bit RAW.
Newest photos are at the end of this album.

36 new images added on June 24, 2008 (my 66th birthday :-)

Images will be randomized from time to time to spark interest.

All photos processed from RAW with Apple Aperture 2.1. Also using Nik software Viveza Aperture plugin when needed.

210 images in all so far. I will replace a few photos that I am not happy with (the quality). I will be adding photos from various visits until this gallery contains 200 and then I will start volume 2. Ken

In order to spark interest, the photos in this gallery will be newly randomized a few times a day. Many more images coming in the weeks and months ahead.

17 More images added from Sunday January 6, 2008.

Added 21 more images on January 3, 2008. Newest 21 images at the top. Fish will be identified soon.

4 more visits to the Aquarium. Added select from RAW processed images.

Dropped by the Aquarium on the afternoon of July 4 while waiting to view the fireworks. Added a few new shots to this album.
This is an all new Aquarium gallery. All photos taken at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA. All photos drastically downsized and not suitable for printing. Printing of any of these photos prohibited. Photos in this gallery are not for sale. More photos will be added to this gallery in the coming weeks and months as I find time to take more.

All photos taken with Nikon D80 and Nikkor 18mm-200mm VR lens. All photos taken in RAW and processed in Aperture 1.53. Then these photos are converted to JPEG and downsized for optimal online viewing only.

This is a labor of love and such shows as this cost me quite a bit out of pocket for travel, admission fees and of course equipment expenses. Please consider a small donation so that I may continue to share these photos with you. You may make a secured donation by clicking here: or better yet consider making a donation directly to the Aquarium of the Pacific.
