p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Some recent shots from Costa Rica (21)


Still busy editing after almost 3 weeks with 2 full tours in Awesome Costa Rica., special thanks to all of my guests, we sure had a good time, great weather, and fun shooting.

Lots of different equipment here with everyone comparing notes and settings., it is nice to learn more from my new friends. We traveled to some new locations on the second tour, and found lots of cool subjects on these newest adventures.

A requested private tour will start on April 7th, 2012, so I need to get caught up with my editing before I go on this one., also, 4 local workshops next weekend to keep my hard drives filled. Lots to do, the the India tour coming soon in late April, just booked my flights for April 25th - May 14th, 2012... 15 hours+ to get to Delhi! I need an iPad badly!

I hope everyone is getting some nice shooting in during this early spring, pretty amazing weather eh!!

here goes..

Higher iso's then I am used to, but the results are ok, imo. I will add some new images later to this thread, in case you are interested to see more.

Most images taken with a tripod, and gimbal head and no flash used, as I prefer natural light for all my shooting.

The croc shot was a slight crop, kind of a mess, but thought it was at least interesting., we were about 6 feet from this huge animal, while in a river boat... that one was hand help.

Take care, and more soon!

This is a fantastic set Ray! That crock photo is crazy! My other pick of the set is 4 with the flowers and tough out what more could one want?

Enjoy your family between mouse clicks!
