No this is not a Peter Lik photo from Death Valley! It's another shot from the Baytown Nature Center taken last weekend. This bog would normally have anywhere from a few inches to a foot of water, but it has been dry for the last couple of weeks.
Our guide stopped us under the canopy of the mangroves for a short meeting to discuss the benefits of mangroves to an islands ecosystem. This photo and the two previous were shot with a Panosonic Lumix TS3 waterproof rugged digital point and shoot camera.
A shot from inside the open top "Ben's Cave" in Lucyan National Park in Freeport, Bahamas. Most of what is floating on the waters surface is calcium picked up by surface water leaching through the caves limestone roof.
The architecture of "Atlantis" in the Bahamas is one of the most recognizable in the world. I had always assumed the connecting structure between the two buildings was a crosswalk, but our jeep tour guide said it is actually a suite available to anyone willing to pay the $25,000.00 per night room rate!
I'm not sure but I think every Carnival cruise offers a little island style steel drum music on the upper deck at poolside at some point during a cruise. These guys kept the party going at least a couple of hours a day.
I work in the industrial distribution sector as a salesman for a master distributor of valves and fittings in Houston, TX. I am a member of the Bay Area Photo Club which meets at the Art Alliance Center at Clear Lake in Clear Lake Texas on Tuesday nights. I shoot with an Olympus E-3 and my favorite lens in my Zuiko 12-60.
