Picture of the day: Slow and steady wins the race

At least the proverb says that. A wonderful creature from my trip to Galapagos a couple of years ago.  Just incredible animal.


Picture of the day: The best camera in the world is the one that you have with you…

Is a quote from the famous photographer Chase Jarvis. And when I ask a lot of photographers all seems to agree that the important thing is to “get the shot”.  Todays image is of a hawk from Galapagos. We where going snorkeling, and I could only bring my waterproof GoPRO with my wetsuit, and these magnificent birds was all around. Our guide was a bit afraid that we where going to get a little to close, since they are prone to attack if they feel like it, but I just had to try to get a shot. So I tried to line up for my shot. Crawling on my knees, trying to make my presence known for the bird without spooking it, and with my GoPRO that have no screen so that I could try to compose the image, and no settings that I could alter, I tried to get a decent shot.  And I did, of course I should wish that I could have brought my DSLR, but that was not an option at the time. But most importantly. I got the shot.


Picture of the day: I know you are there

It is not always easy being a photographer. As in street photography, sometimes animals try to hide (that statement makes more sense the other way around… but you get my point). But this little fellow just made its message very  loud and clear. This is my turf, and I know you where you are there, and just keep your distance 🙂 Iguanas is just so amazing animals.
