One of the places we visit a lot is the El Boliche Recreation Area, this is one 30 mins drive away and provides us with quiet, sometimes we are the only people on the trails, which we enjoy, the isolation, … Continue reading
So we decided to go camping on a whim, without much planning and as the weather isnt’t the best at the moment we went open minded to see if we would get any decent photos or not. So we loaded … Continue reading
Probably one of my favourite photos ever, just look at this little guy (or gal, I have no idea). I was sitting on the beach in the Galapagos Islands, San Cristobal to be exact and there were sesa lions all … Continue reading
Parque Cóndor in Otavalo, in the Imbabura Province of Ecuador is one of the most amazing places here, the only place where you are can see falconry in Ecuador. http://www.parquecondor.com
Not always the weather is amazing in the park and there are days when the volcano is hiding behind the clouds, but there are so many other things to photograph.

From My Garden – Day 33 – Carnation
Carnations are lovely and so easy to grow, at least I think so. We don´t have many of them but we are slowly taking cuttings and growing more.
From My Garden – Day 32 – Grasshopper
This little grasshopper was relaxing in the sun on a stone, he has great patience and let me get really close up with the camera before hopping away.
Day 31 Alfalfa
Alfalfa is very popular in Ecuador as feed for the cows so there is loads of it.
Day 31 Apple Blossom
Such joy when we saw this, ok the tree is so very small still but it is still amazing to see it.
Day 29 Onion
The never ending onion flower, it just flowers and flowers day after day with no change.
Day 28 – Strawberry Flower
Our strawberry plants are a little sad and sorry for themselves, they don´t die but they don´t prosper either. Hopefully this is a good sign.
Day 26 Capulí
A short while ago I posted a photo of a capuli flower, this is the fruit that the tree produces, and it changes colour over time to black. They are out early this year as the rains came early.
Day 25 Bees
As you know we have some hives in our garden and after some recent rain one of our hives separated and we were able to catch them again as they stayed close by and regrouped in the corner of our property so we got out one of our empty boxes and put them inside.
Day 24 – Butterfly
This was a great opportunity today, as the butterfly was sitting quietly on the window of our sun room, I waited for a while as I was rather busy and when I finished up what I was doing I got the camera out and put on the macro lens and the butterfly was still sitting there minding it´s own business. I got off a few shots and decided this was the best.
