Cenotes Underwater Photography – Amazing Light

11 01 2011

I just spent two short days photographing some of the most beautiful light i’ve ever seen underwater. Cenotes are fresh and brackish water sink holes in the jungle of Mexico’s Riviera Maya, just south of Playa del Carmen. These are cavern and  cave systems that ultimately lead out to the ocean. The water is crystal clear and the light is absolutely on a whole other level. Here are just a few examples, More to follow… 

Thanks to Dive Aventuras and the Omni Puerto Aventuras Beach Resort for being such wonderful hosts!





Lunar Eclipse

21 12 2010

I wasn’t able to shoot the lunar eclipse from NYC tonight. However, I photographed a great lunar eclipse a few years back. I created the following two composites to represent the spectrum of the rainbow. These are time lapsed over about an hour or so. All are actual images shot with an SLR attached to a telescope. The gray color moon sliver is the actual color. The orange was pretty close to realty as well.  The remaining colors were for effect. Enjoy!

They say that the South African Sardine Run is such a massive event that it can be viewed from space. Well, while at the Sardine Run this year, I pointed my camera in the other direction. Apparently the sky is also so clear that you can see space from the Sardine Run!
