Vietnam – March 2019 – 1

Sitting at the airport in Ho Chi Minh City waiting to board my return flight. As there is a bit of time I have started looking at some of the images from this fabulous trip. Despite the heat and humidity (both bearable), the photo opportunities are just phenomenal.

This is a late evening view of the tallest building in Ho Chi Minh. It is not a part of the main skyline but to the right as you look across the river. Access to photograph the main city skyline was closed due to major construction.

Day three we drove past some very very large fishing villages. The image below is one that caught my eye. It was in the village of Mui Ne on the coastal route from Ho Chi Minh to Phan Rang. It was interesting to see practically all the varieties of fishing vessels you find in Vietnam.

SW Florida Workshop Day 1

An early morning trip out to the pools in the Fort Myers Beach area was productive.  The bird were magnificent with their feathers blowing in the gentle breeze. The light was perfect as was the action.

Here are some of the images from the beach:

Snowy Egret - Blowing in the Wind


The egrets were very active and there was plenty of fish to be eaten.

Next stop was Sanibel Island and the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge.  Ding Darling was quiet compared to the many trips I have done in the past but still a fun place to be.  Lots of Brown and White Pelicans, Cormorants, Red Breasted Mergansers and Pied Billed Grebes.

We left Ding Darling and drove to Captiva for lunch at a favorite spot “Key Lime Bistro”.   One of the members had developed a problem with her Nikon D700 that refused to focus properly so the day before we rented a body that had to pick up from the hotel.  Once assembled we left for our next photo location. Beautiful evening light made one forget the biting by the no-see-ums that some repellant took care of.  Here are some images in the awesome light:

Then the sunset turned the skies a deep reddish pink – the water and the birds all seemed to get this glow.
