Galapagos

August 31st, 2011

First a disclaimer: I have never claimed to be a wildlife photographer. After our Galapagos trip in June I have even more respect than ever for those who do it so well. It takes a special skill to capture the excitement you feel when you are up close to other species. So it is with great humility that I am sharing some of the images from our trip to the Galapagos in June.

The trip started in Guayaquil Ecuador. The following image is from the aptly named Iguana Park – before the iguanas in the trees started bombarding me and the camera.

The following are in roughly chronological order as we made our way around the islands in a very small boat (capacity 20 plus crew) and are a combination of landscape and wildlife. One word about the wildlife: everything was really close and very abundant. Birds, sea lions, iguanas, and turtles were close enough to touch.

And finally a picture of Bob, my partner on this adventure as in life. I will try to talk him into letting me post some of his images to extend the experience.

    Finally Gallapagos pix! I liked the one with the seal and the two of the rock island(s). And, have to admit it was nice seeing one of Bob, too! Maybe next time we can get one of both of you.
