Galapagos sunset

The Galapagos provide for some truly amazing and unique photographic opportunities. Not only for wildlife but also for landscape – even though they might be harder to find.


This shot was taken in Puerto Villamil, which is located on Isabela Island, the largest of the the Galapagos Islands. Just outside of the our beach front hotel, set this amazing scene. I went out a few nights in a row before dinner to be able to capture this scene at its best. Tripod just a hair off the ground made it a challenge with the water constantly rolling in. However, this long exposure shot was worth it.


Exposure time was about 6 min. I forgot my watch that night, so I had to count the seconds manually and drew a line in the sand for every minute that passed.


Have a great weekend everyone,
