Swimming face to face with sharks, giant turtles + sting rays was i n s a n e. 😍
i was casually diving under a lava tunnel (checking out a beautiful sea horse 🦄), when 2 big sharks swam out of a shark filled cave directly underneath my face 🙈
literally peed my wetsuit 🦈🦈
so many bucket list experiences - so much appreciation ♥️
ps. i am still working (whyyyyyyy do so many people think i just vacation all year round!!! 👀)
doing a day trip like this means i wake up at silly early hours of the morning + work until crazy late at night 💻📲
i felt so sick last night due to being ridiculously burned out + over tired - but these experiences are ones i can’t miss out on.
so here’s to 4 more sleepless nights + hectic work/adventure filled days before it’s home time for christmas!!! 🇬🇧🎄
Not knowing where to point because this crater is so huge! it is the second biggest crater of the world from the vulcano sierra negra. 🌋 all the black you see is dried lava and most of the clouds are formed by gasses coming out of the ground. the diameter of the crater is between 7-10 kilometers!! 😮credits: @the_girl_and_her_backpack .

Photo by tui de roy - we have one space that just opened up for the ultimate galapagos photo tour. the space is for a female willing to share with another female in a twin suite. more info via link in bio.
** join me and legendary galapagos photographer and expert, @tuigalapagos in the galapagos! from august 16- 31, 2019 we'll travel by luxurious ship from island to island, on a very special photo tour uniquely designed for photographers and serious nature enthusiasts
what makes our tour so special?
while most tours offer only one week at sea, this tour offers a full two weeks.
we'll spend more time on shore than other tours. we'll arrive on shore earlier in the morning and stay later in the day, at the best times for wildlife activity.
we'll work on shore in smaller groups than other tours with twice as many naturalist guides, so we can wander in small groups of no more than 8 participants instead of the normal 16. this is something that no other photo tour offers, so there well be no stumbling over each other even during the most exciting moments.
our chosen season is a time of adorable babies and soft overcast skies that minimize the pitfalls of photography under harsh equatorial sunlight.
we’ve chosen a luxurious, family owned ship, the evolution, which is large enough to avoid discomforts of sea motion yet small enough to be homey.
suzi eszterhas will share her expertise in documenting the special bond between mother and offspring of all species. she will bring to life a whole new facet in photographing galapagos, a place so often depicted through the cool scientific lens rather than the warmth of natural family emotions.
tui de roy will share her 50 years experience documenting these magic islands, bringing to life daily details of behavior, lighting, composition and more, which are so easily missed during shorter, fast-paced tours. tui will also share her vast island background in daily slideshows ranging from what it was like to grow up as a pioneer child on these shores, to the spectacular functioning of their active volcanoes, and much more. #phototour #galapagos #galapagostour
This land iguana is having a feast eating a cactus. i love the focus of the reptile looking for the right angle to best eat this treat and avoid the prickly cactus. and the eye is perfectly immobile. love wildlife ! in the galapagos of course. photo by marko dimitrijevic. #galapagosislands #galapagos #iguana #sonyalphauniverse #yourshotphotographer #natgeoyourshot #cactus
