Crocodile Bridge

The biggest lesson I learned at the bridge… I need a bigger lens. Above are my best two shots of the crocodiles but fear not blog readers, there were other photographers on hand. Clark Lloyd offered up some shots for our viewing pleasure. Note – there are more pretty cool shots available if you follow his link.

This was Clark’s “shot of the day”.

Personally speaking, that was too close for me. Here’s a shot from the bridge of the group heading to take these shots. Note – I don’t recommend this. Crazy photographers!

And last but not least, my “shot of the day”. I snapped this on the drive back to the hotel. We were moving pretty quickly. It was shot at 1/4000th of a second, at f / 5.6, ISO 1000. I think it’s pretty cool. Love the shape of this tree.

Amazing Adventures Costa Rica Tree Beach February 26, 2013 Trish blogWe wrapped today with a two hour session, complete with an Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 demo, lead by Navy Nhum (pronounced Na-vee Newm). Navy is part of the Amazing Adventures Ltd team and we’re lucky to have her along. I had downloaded Lightroom the day before and was thrilled to be shown how to move through the basic menus. It’s a pretty cool, new tool and who doesn’t like that?

Tomorrow we’re supposed to head to the airport. We’ll be checking that our flight is still scheduled early in the morning. Last I heard the rain turned to snow had turned back to rain but we’ll see what the morning brings.
