Sunrise in Flores, Guatemala:
We didn’t get to spend much time in Flores on our autumn trip to the Yucatan — really, just a night sandwiched between the ruins of Tikal and our flight east to Belize. But we had a great night on the island, and were greeted in the morning by this amazing sunrise.
The original part of Flores (where we stayed) is an island in Lake Peten Itza — it was once the last Maya holdout (from the conquistadors) in the Yucatan peninsula. Now the island is connected to the mainland by a causeway, and the town of Flores covers more ground there than on the island.
Another shot from last summer’s road trip to the Canadian Rockies:
This is a shot across Moraine Lake, just at sundown. We scrambled to get there while the light was still up — we were too late to do any hiking around the lake, but at least I was able to get this shot. Or to be precise, three shots combined as an HDR image.
The last time I visited Seattle’s Center for Wooden Boats, I managed to get there pretty early in the morning — before Lake Union had time to get choppy from the day’s breezes.
Lucky me — it made for some nice reflections!
