    Hello All,

    Took a trip to the Galapagos Island in March, took over 1400 pictures and finally have all my picture sorted through and digitally developed. Will be posting some in the critic section for more harsh critic, but wanted to post here to share and get any feedback.

    Damn! Some fantastic shots. I looked at all your Ecuador/Galapagos shots. I have been to Ecuador (mostly just Quito) but never got a chance to go to the Galapagos, you are lucky! Only problem if I wen there would be the constant mental battle of whether to take photos on land or go scuba diving...

    Thanks for all the warm feedback!

    I spent 10 days on a yachat which allowed me to spend most of my time on land, but had the option to go scuba diving 3 or 4 times had I choosen to...

    However, i found out there is a major section of the islands that has superior scuba diving where you would probably go and scuba dive every day for hours at a time. where i was, was much better for land and snorkelling as I am not much of a scuba diver.

    Glad you all are enjoying the photos and thanks again for all the positive feedback!

    Ann - those marine iguanas are CRAZY! the spit out of their nose every few minutes. I tried to capture that, but there was never any warning and never really found a way to time it..oh well

    Mike - All my current and pass work can be viewed at: http://www.justinkorn.com (click on TRAVEL to see the Galapagos section)

    enjoy and thanks for the comments.
