Visual Adventure: The Galapagos Islands

Attit Patel October 29, 2012 2

Roughly 550 miles off the coast of Ecuador, The Galapagos Islands are such a mysterious, yet alluring place. Beautiful landscapes, rugged terrains, teaming wildlife, and waters so clear that you can almost see all the marine life below you – this is truly paradise for a travel photographer. This post doesn’t do this amazing place the justice it deserves. I’ve got so many photos that I could do a part two. The ability to shoot wildlife, without needing a monster zoom lens allows you to become more creative with your shots. Remember though, no touching!

      Thanks Wendy! I used a Canon 5D Mark2, but you should always know that the camera doesn’t make a difference. You could shoot the same photos on a point and shoot.
