This was a 40 minute exposure with an old camera I have.  I love doing long exposures because it allows you to see the landscape in a way the human eye cannot.
Cave diving deep inside La Sirena near Santo Domingo. This amazing cave attracts divers from all over the world to swim in its crystal clear waters and see spectacular formations.

Sitting around our chimenea I thought it would be interesting to take a long exposure of te embers that were coming up from the stack.

Another Snowy Egret that I startled walking across the bridge. I was not ready and was very lucky to get this image.
Capture of a Snowy Egret in the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge in Freemont, CA. This is a great place to get shots of all sorts of aquatic wildlife.
