Good morning all, we are in New Mexico at the moment hiding from the crazy cold winter storms that are in the states above us, until things get warmer up there we will park it right here. I will be leaving Saturday morning for Bonaire shooting photos for the Smithsonian Institution and will be there for a week, will be good to get my now dry skin back in the water. 

The day before I left Curaçao I went to Klein Curacao and accidentally flooded my Nikon D-800 camera and 105 macro lens and not the way you all are thinking… I was laying on the sand shooting photos for my sea-glass book when a monster wave came out of nowhere and covered me and the camera! I knew immediately there would be no way to save the camera and lens so I went looking for the sea-glass that got washed away instead but lost a bunch of that as well, good thing we had insurance. I just replaced the D-800 with the newer D-810 and so far I am loving it!!

So to help pass the time here in New Mexico I have been photographing two super cute kids that we know out on their ranch in the middle of nowhere! Ranch kids/cowgirls have such a different life than city kids, for instance, no electricity, just solar power and the house is heated by a wood stove and kids still love the o’l Red Rider wagons as you can see above. These kids live about 40 miles from town near the white sands missile range and have horses, chickens, dogs and ducks to play with and only sometimes do they have the luxury of internet, most kids wouldn’t know what to do under these conditions. 

Not much else to report, all is well, stay tuned for new finds from Bonaire in a few days!!

Keep warm…

Good morning all, my photo of the now famous Godzilla Goby is in the 2017 issue of Science in the News. This was one of the many new finds by the Smithsonian Institution in collaboration with Substation Curacao using a mini-submersible that can go to depths of a 1000 feet. Luke Tornabene and Carole Baldwin were the two scientists working on describing this beautiful new fish species which I believe was found off the coast of Curacao.
