After the last of the airplanes were landing yesterday, walking around the resort, I couldn’t help but notice how lush the islands plants were, especially in back light!  I went to the room and mounted a 60mm micro lens and did some close-up work.  This was done casually, hand held, which I almost never do, but I was pleased with the take.  Though not tack sharp, in all instances, the the images convey what I was feeling looking though the lens and enjoying the wonderful light!  Hope you enjoy them….  This early afternoon one more shot at some of the big planes that fly in, the AirBus 320’s, Boeing 757 and 747.

 

 

This trip has been a good rest in prep for a killer schedule in April, and it has been spiritually a wonderful opportunity to reach out.  God has provided numerous chances to fellowship and share, in some cases at a deep level with those He has placed in our paths.  It is always a grand adventure to go out into the world and see what He has prepared for us!

No KLM 747 arrival today, so I worked the big American Airlines flight from New York.  I used the D800 and 14-24 right on the beach!  This was the three shot sequence that I captured.  Freaky being under such a big plane and watching others standing on their toes reaching for it!!!!  Human intelligence is vastly over-rated!!!!  Enjoy!

 

 

Oh well, one more chance tomorrow!!!

Sherelene, Bryan Rymer, our new friend and contest participant, and I spend most of today touring the island of St. Maarten, both the French side of the island and the Dutch side.  It was market day and several of the communities on the island had open air markets, we had a blast shooting all the color and patterns….  Hope you enjoy them!

 

 

We had a great time checking out all the culture and color of this wonderful island.

Today, Wednesday, is my day off from Toppix 2013, before working Thursday, Friday, and Saturday morning.  Bryan Rymer has graciously offered to take Sherelene and I on a tour of the Island.  St. Maarten is divided into two halves, a Dutch side where we are staying, and the French side.  The 30 something mile drive around the Island should offer up some great photography opportunities!  I will post them later today or this evening.  I love travel photography because it is a great way to see what you react to, visually!  I hope to bring you some nice stuff later……

 

Blessings,
