Marty’s photo of the day #2554: Okay, this shot gets extra points for difficulty. I’m sitting on the floor of the Sea of Cortez; I have an octopus sitting atop my feet; I’m petting the octopus with one hand and holding the camera with the other. The water was shallow, and waves were splashing, so […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2548: How hard is it to spot an octopus? You are looking at one right now. Photographed in the Sea of Cortez. Hint: Look dead center, and you will see an octopus eye.
Marty’s photo of the day #2526: It’s artsy photo day. This is a brown pelican that I photographed over the Sea of Cortez. The bird was in focus, but the sun washed out much of the scene. So I darkened the photo and increased the vibrancy while boosting the blues that were already there. Because […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2513: I’ll never forget having the privilege of swimming with sea lions in the Sea of Cortez. They were such curious creatures—and they loved to demonstrate the proper way to swim. I’m sure they were wondering: Why can’t I move with such dexterity and grace?
Marty’s photo of the day #2499: I photographed this blue-footed booby on a tiny island in the Sea of Cortez. This was the only blue-footed booby I saw the entire time I was in Mexico. I would have been so pissed if she wasn’t in focus.
Marty’s photo of the day #2399: Cormorants on the Sea of Cortez. Don’t you just love their bright blue eyes?
Marty’s photo of the day #2396: Oh, we’re going to get artsy again today. This is a brown pelican (or perhaps a Pterodactyl) diving into the Sea of Cortez at sunset.
Marty’s photo of the day #2363: Aah! Another beautiful day on the Sea of Cortez, in Mexico. Just let me sleep.
Marty’s photo of the day #2293: Sea Lions in the Sea of Cortez. As soon as Deb and I jumped into the water, they were there with us.
Marty’s photo of the day #2242: In this photo Deb is holding one of the octopuses we spent time with in the Sea of Cortez. When underwater, octopuses look more substantial than they do above water, where their lack of bones becomes more evident.
Marty’s photo of the day #2073: I had so much fun swimming with sea lions last year in the Sea of Cortez. Other than being in Antarctica, where the animals had no fear of humans, I can’t think of any other instance where wild animals interacted so easily with people and seemed to genuinely enjoy […]
