I see a sea star!!!! And a whole school of tiny fishies!!! I mean, seriously. Could those fish have swum by at a better time?!? This lovely (large…approximately 12 inches across!) starfish was spotted at Maho Bay on St. John, USVI. Super stoked to take this photo because I received an underwater housing for my Canon Powershot G12 for Christmas in preparation for this upcoming trip full of promising underwater photos! So, photo is courtesy of the Powershot G12, underwater housing, my hands, luck for making me almost step on this thing while wading through the water, and nature with her impeccable timing.
Stay tuned for more shots!
“Twelve little boats, sitting in a row
Each colorful one with a rope in tow.
Docked for the day and dark starry night
Ready to depart at dawn’s first golden light.”
Okay, okay, perhaps its a cheesy little poem, but whatever. I’m in an artsy mood. I even arranged “Streets of Philadelphia” for SATB a cappella on Sunday with the boyfriend. Photos and poems and songs, oh my!!
Anyhoo, this photo was taken with the amazing Canon G7 next to the fishing pier in Puerto Morelos, Mexico (right in front of the old lighthouse). All of the boats were moored for the night and I was stunned by how much colorful character they all had. That translated to a boat photoshoot! To help you create a better mental image of the Puerto Morelos fishing pier, if you faced the pier (looking out to the ocean), these boats were to the left and the previously-posted pelican was to the right! Alright, here’s the pier:
The boat photo was cropped to remove the gargantuan dead fish that was on the beach and was then post-processed to an HDR photo! Enjoy!!!!!!
