This is a small brown basilisk (Basiliscus vittatus). Here in Belize they are also known as “Jesus Christ lizards,” because of their ability to run across the surface of water for short distances. Photographed on April 10, 2009.
The weather in Placenia has been somewhat windy and overcast for the last day or two, which is apparently unheard of for this time of year. This morning there was a hint of sunrise, but the wind was still blowing. I used a slow shutter speed to show the movement of the palm leaves. Photographed on April 9, 2009.
This isn’t directly photography-related, but I’ve recently been taking the Kindle e-book reader with me when I travel. It’s a good alternative to bringing the half dozen books I might otherwise carry. Those weight savings are especially nice when I’m already loaded down with photo gear. Anyways, this was just a fun shot I setup while reading by the pool…feels very 2009 to me.
Today was our first full day in Belize. I noticed this hibiscus outside my hotel room. Photographed on April 8, 2009.
When I noticed this detail on the orchid in our kitchen, I felt that focusing in on it would make for an interesting image. It’s difficult to make novel images of flowers, because they are such popular subjects. Hopefully this one feels at least a little unique. Photographed on February 10, 2009.
Here I’ve tried to capture a sense of the depth created by the foggy forest and falling snow. Photographed on February 10, 2009.
It was snowing when I took the dogs for a walk in the forest the other day. Photographed on February 10, 2009.
I finally jumped on the bandwagon and bought a Canon G10 as my “take everywhere” camera. Here’s one of my first shots with it. Photographed on February 10, 2009.
Here I’ve chosen a large aperture so that I can take advantage of the interesting rainbow highlights created by the out-of-focus droplets. Photographed on February 1, 2009.
Once the sun hits the frost in the morning, it melts into these delicate little droplets. Photographed on February 1, 2009.
