Re: Went there, done that...

Saw this too late. As it seems you did what I would have suggested anyway, no polarizer and the 17-50. I had my 70-300 on when we took the trip and had the feeling that for many occasions it was too long.

Although one could think that there is lots of light, but this isn't necessarily true..

My shots can be seen here:

From 45 to 97 were taken from the chopper. I was quite scared at first but would do it again without hesitation (and would be scared again, I guess ).
