After almost forty hours of travel and a nice fifteen hour snooze, I am sitting in front of my 27 inch iMac, jet lagged at 6 AM eating REAL (leftover) Mexican food and editing photos. This is the first post since the blog’s update (I would love to hear your thoughts below on the new look). Please continue to check back often, as I will be posting tons of new photos from my travels.

About a week ago, ten of us went up to Fraggle Rock to see the sun set over Sairee Beach and do some nighttime abseiling (rappelling). It was so clear out you could easily see the Milky Way, the low clouds underneath brilliantly illuminated by the green glow of the squid boats to the southwest. I stole one of my friend’s lights to do some light painting on the foreground trees, which complement the background green glow and Milky Way nicely. It took 5 or 6 shots to dial in all the settings until I got what I wanted.
