Finally, I'm home from back to back photo expeditions. The first trip was to the Galapagos Islands off Ecuador, one of my favorite places on earth. The second was to the "Mexican Galapagos", the SocorroIslands off Baja Mexico. In addition to meeting lots of interesting, fun people from around the world- Russia, Europe, Brazil, Mexico, USA etc.- I met up with my finned and flippered friends beneath the waves- sea lions and sharks, turtles and tuna, and oddballs such as the mola mola and redlip batfish. The tropical Eastern Pacific has some of the finest diving on the planet, and I'm already thinking about future trips to this region, probably back to the Galapagos and maybe to Malpelo off Columbia. Let us know if your sights are set on the same!
