POTD: Hanging Tough

Three-toed sloth in Bocas del Toro, Panama

I photographed this wonderfully active three-toed sloth (Bradypus spp.) last May at the Tranquilo Bay Eco Lodge in Bocas del Toro, Panama. Panama is host to a myriad of rainforest species, including the two and three-toed sloths. Unlike Costa Rican sloths, which have large predators and stay hidden most of the day, their Panamanian cousins are often active and in the open during broad daylight.

Tech Specs

Nikon D850 with 500mm f/5.6E PF VR Nikkor lens
1/800s f/5.6 ISO 400

POTD: Scottish Rainbow

Rainbow over the Scottish countryside, Cairngorms National Park

On the road from Pitlochry to Inverness, we stumbled upon a glorious rainbow in Cairngorms National Park. I asked our driver to stop the van, and my clients and I captured the fleeting moment of sunshine and color from the roadside.

Tech specs: Nikon Z7 with 24-70mm f/4 S Z-Nikkor
1/200s f/8 ISO 64 (hand-held)

I’m looking forward to returning to South Dakota next week for my 9th annual Badlands Landscape Workshop. It’s a fabulous location for sunrises and sunsets, and offers spectacular scenery and the opportunity to use a variety of photographic techniques. I hope you’ll consider one of my photography tours as part of your path towards better photography.

POTD: Walking the Walk

Nazca booby, Isla Genovesa, Galápagos.

Most people have heard of the famous Blue-footed booby, but the Galapágos is home to several other species of these comical birds, such as this Nazca booby. While boobies are quite ungainly on land, they are agile in flight and excellent swimmers.

Shooting Data

Nikon D850 with Nikon 70-200mm f/4 AFS G VR zoom Nikkor lens and TC-14EIII teleconverter. 1/800s f/8, ISO 320 (auto).
