Enrichment Voyage: Central America & the Panama Canal. Nikonians Ultimate Travel Workshop 2011 (UTW-II) Day 3 – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

We arrived at Cabo San Lucas early in the morning well before sunrise. My other post for the day documents the sun rising. The shadow self portrait was taken duing the sunrise session.

Rather than docking, the ship anchored off shore and then used the life-boats as tenders to transport the passengers to and from shore. There were some swells that rocked the ship making the transfer from the M/V Explorer to the tender difficult, and a very slow process. Folks that were supposed to leave the ship at 7 AM didn’t leave until after 9 AM.  Durring the day I took a series of images of the Arch at Land’s End as viewed from my cabin window, with a Norwegin Troll sitting at the window.

Enrichment Voyage: Central America & the Panama Canal. Nikonians Ultimate Travel Workshop 2011 (UTW-II) Day 2 – At Sea. Sunrise over Isla Cedros along the Mexican Coast, Pacific Sunset in Fog.

We were out on deck early to catch the sunrise. There was a bit of confusion about what time sunrise would be since the ship changed to Central Mexican time zone overnight. Was the sun going to rise at 05:07 hr or 07:07 hr. It turned out to be 07:07 hr, which makes sense since we are on the west side of the time zone.  We then spent the day in class: “Welcome Orientation & Workshop Introduction”, and “Components to Travel Photography” taught by Michael Mariant. We are scheduled to arrive in Cabo San Lucas tomorrow morning. At the end of the day a fog bank came in just before the sun set.

Institute for Shipboard Education (ISE) – Enrichment Voyage: Central America & the Panama Canal. Nikonians Ultimate Travel Workshop 2011 (UTW-II) Day 1: Sunrise in San Diego. Green Flash at Sunset over the Pacific Ocean.

HDR composite of images of Sunrise over San Diego taken from my hotel room. Three images were taken with a Leica X1 camera (+2, 0, -2 EV) just as the sun started to show above the mountains to the east. The first image was processed with HDR Express, using its Artistic default. The second image was processed with Photomatix Pro using the Compressor Deep settings.

We left San Diego at about 11 AM for Ensenada, Mexico to board the M/V Explorer for our Enrichment Voyage. It was good to see many friends from the Caribbean Enrichment Voyage and Ultimate Travel Workshop I (UTW-I) on board.

After leaving Ensenada for Cabo San Lucas there was a small  green flash at sunset. The image was taken with a Leica V-Lux 20 camera (200 mm equiv). This is a good omen for the SAS Enrichment Voyage — Nikonians Ultimate Travel Workshop II.
