Fireworks at Rainier. I spent my July 4th evening next to a small lake near Mount Rainier. The show was marvelous, although it really drove home how small APS-format sensors are. With any luck, I’ll be climbing up this mountain as soon as next summer. I hope the weather is as good as it was in this picture, since these clouds cleared up shortly after the shot.
Leatherback Turtle Nest. Turtle nest on Playa Bluff, Bocas Del Toro. The nest was made just last night, and the hatch of eggs is buried somewhere only a foot beneath the surface.
La Gruta. In the center of Isla Colon in the Bocas Del Toro archipelago, La Gruta cave is the home to bats, glow worms, and whip scorpions. My sister and I wandered 45 min down the passageway, eating lunch on a large mineral deposit. On our way out, we paused at the first sign of light from the surface. Exposure was done using light painting.
North Carenero Rock 1. On the north side of Carenero in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago, there is a series of rocks that face the waves coming in from the Carribbean. I have yet to explore the area fully, but here is one of the images from the first round.
