Having a bit of underwater photography fun this week - just shooting what I see while snorkeling around the reefs of Elba. I lost my magenta filter for my GoPro today though 😭.
.
Someone asked me about technique on my IG Story: my simple technique here is to use time lapse mode, with a photo taken every .5 seconds. The GoPro is on a retractable pole. I try to remain very still, near some approaching fishies, and then activate the shutter as they get close - out of each 5-10 second burst there is maybe 1-2 usable images (so yeah, definitely some “spray and pray”).
.
The @sandmarc magenta filter neutralises the color cast at depths of 1-2 meters.

Interesting skies over Elba Island this morning. I love the rolling fog coming over the island as the morning wind starts to pick up. Snapped this iPhone pic along the northern coast on the ferry, about 6:30am, just before arriving in Portoferraio.
.
A week of sun under the Tuscany skies begins! ☀️🇮🇹🏖.

Great Egret arriving at nest with some building supplies.
.
Did you know that the great egret is the symbol of the National Audubon Society @audubonsociety ?
.
.
👉🏻 Great Egret (Ardea alba).
📍Florida, USA 🇺🇸.

“Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints”.
.
- Chief Seattle (1786-1866).
.
.
A classic quote to live by for sure, if you are a proponent of nature preservation.
.
Chief Seattle conveniently forgot to mention the part about leaving behind some genes too... according to Wiki, he had 88 children!
.
.
Whenever I see a footprints-on-the-beach pic like this I am instantly reminded of the Counting Crows lyric from the song “Round Here”:
.
“She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land, 
Just like she's walking on a wire in the circus”.
.
No explanation... just love that song.
.

Pic overlooking the region of Val-de-ruz and Chaumont in the Canton of Neuchatel. If you zoom you’ll see Lake Neuchâtel. Normally the Alps would be there too, but too hazy and hot today!
.
Snapped this iPhone shot during a quick 1 hour hike today. When people think of Swiss hiking their reflex is to think of the big Alps. However, the rolling hills of the Jura and Neuchatel mountains (“baby Alps”) provide a stunning “Alps balcony” with hundreds of kilometers of trails for bikers, walkers and runners of all levels. The vast forest trails also provide some respite from the hot summer sun!
.
📍Les Planches, Val-de-Ruz, Neuchâtel.

As of yesterday, my kids are on vacation... so I feel that the summer season is officially underway ☀️🔥⛱ 🙂.
.
Wishing everyone many warm nights on the beaches, enjoying the company of friends, family and... sunsets! 🌅.
.
I got an early glimpse of summer this year when I was in southern Mexico... hot hot hot 🔥  This sunset pic taken from the Sheraton Hotel patio in Peurto Vallarta, in May.
.
Enjoy your summer everyone!

A common buzzard, scouring the freshly cut hay fields. Nowhere to hide now, little mice... 🐭.
.
They are commonly mistaken for red kites, which have a forked tail. The buzzard is recognizable by its fan-shaped tail.
.
👉🏻 Common buzzard (Buteo buteo).
📍 Neuchatel, Switzerland.

Here comes the sun, na na na na.... and I say... It's all right.
.
Feeling a little Beatlesque this morning. Not sure why, but when I opened this sunrise photo, George Harrison’s song just popped into my head.
.
What’s your favorite Beatles tune?

Good morning from Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. 🇭🇰 It’s not very sunny here, but clouds and rain can sometimes make for better photos anyway 🙂 ☔️ ⛈.
.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

This pic was taken in 2010. Heading back here tomorrow for the first time since.
.
It’s mostly a business trip, but I should have a couple of days to visit the city.
.
.
So... any ideas where this is? 🤔 ?
.
I’ll add the location to the post tomorrow.
.
Hint: The convention center with the rounded roof was actually the location of a very significant event in Asian history...
.
.
EDIT:  Yep Hong Kong... 🇭🇰 The building pictured above is the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center, location of the official ceremony (“The Handover”) of Hong Kong from under British sovereignty back to the Chinese, on July 1, 1997.

Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters jams away during a concert last night at the Stade de Suisse in Bern, Switzerland.
.
I didn’t have a press pass for this event - I actually was taking my son for his 15th bday present. However, we managed to get “pole position” on the runway that comes off the main stage and Mr. Grohl was only about 3 meters from us at certain moments during the show. It helps to be tall sometimes!
.
This image taken with an iPhone 7 plus. I shot it in RAW/DNG and processed it in Lightroom Mobile and Snapseed.
.
Great show! 🤟🏻 32,000 fans!!! Were you there??

Curious Snowy Egret sporting the latest in bird hair fashion.
.
The snowy egret is the American counterpart to the very similar Old World little egret. At one time, the beautiful plumes of the snowy egret were in great demand by market hunters as decorations for women's hats. This reduced the population of the species to dangerously low levels. Now protected in the United States by law, under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, its population has rebounded [ref: wiki].
