Galapagos National Park, Ecuador.Marine Iguana on Sesuvium We had been underway since about 4:00 am, and had reached the bay between Islas Plazas by this time. At 7, we went ashore on Plaza Sur, a dry landing to a beach, surrounded by sea lions.

It was an overcast sky, so it was flat lighting, and not a whole lot of it. I used my monopod and Kodachrome 200 to start with. It was an interesting landscape, with cactus and low-growing red Sesuvium. It would have been fantastic if the light had been right. As it was, it was good for portraits, which I was able to do because I could get so amazingly close to the animals. I can understand no fear, but I would think they would need more personal “space”.

We saw sea lions, marine- and land-iguanas, yellow warblers, dove-tailed gulls, pelicans, lava lizards. A great walk, and incredible place. I shot about 4 rolls.
