Picture of the Month



Grey Whale Calf Underwater

San Ignacio Lagoon

Baja California

 March 2007



This month I struggled to settle on a single favorite image - so instead I am highlighting a single, favorite location - Baja California.   It is where I cut my teeth as a naturalist and photographer more than two decades ago, and it remains a place I enjoy returning to again and again. 

Here are some images from a recent two-week trip. 



Elegant Terns, Isla Rasa, Sea of Cortes




Flying Fish feeding on krill swarm at night




Kayakers at sunset



Camera :  Nikon D2X  Digital

Life, Color, Drama, Reality .... No Digital Manipulation
