Smithsonian Candidate #2…Ghost Ship

I am thinking of entering the Smithsonian Photo Contest even though I have zero chance of winning. I say that not to denigrate my ability as a photographer, but each category already has over 50,000 entries. Sure a lot of them are crap but some, well follow the link above and see for yourself. Also you can only submit work from 1/1/2016 until the present and all works with people must have a model release.

If you are familiar with any of my work (e.g. Moment and Souls) you probably realize I don’t have a lot of model releases.

Fortunately I do have some images that may qualify in other categories and will be publishing some here to see if you feel they quality. Please comment and let me know your thoughts. This is an entry in altered image category of a boat at sunset off La Isla Dora in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Sunset on Quintana Roo

Each night in The Mayan Rivera gives you another opportunity to see a magnificent sunset. This was photographed at La Isla Dora in 2018. A docked tourist pirate ship is in the foreground. Well I assume it is a tourist ship.

Yet Another Mexican Sunset

When I am in Mexico I am always on the lookout for a couple of things. Pelican images and sunsets or sunrises. I have so many great images of pelicans that I don’t publish them any more.

I need to still get the pelican money shot.I am trying to get one emerging from the water at sunset with a fish in his mouth. Until then, proably not too many pelican pictures.

However each sunset is unique and hard for me to resist sharing. Here is another one from this year’s trip.

Yet another sunset

Sunset at the Dock

I took this picture while this boat was at the dock. I couldn’t help but wonder how this would feel to see the sun going while at sea. No other boats around, no land in sight.

Would I feel anxious, peaceful, scared or happy. Probably all of the above making it a unique experience.

Cruising at Sunset

Next time w visit Mexico I have to figure out how to be this guy for a day. This is MY boat. I want this boat and I want to be at sea at sunset and sunrise for that matter. I am planning an ocean cruise but this is different. This boat is a personal yacht to only share with very close friends.

Sunset at La Isla Dora

Our condo in Cancún is located on La Isla Dora on the Caribbean Sea. Across the street is a shopping center with a dock overlooking the lagoon. It is a perfect place to capture the sunset.

Mexican Sunset

I have spent about 21 days in Cancún. It has rained about three days. So I have seen 18 fantastic sunsets. The sun sets quicker the closer you are to the tropics but you still have plenty of time to take good pictures and burn your eyes out if your not careful. We will be traveling there again next year and hope to see more unique scenes from mother nature.
