All of the photos from the “2014 – Amazon” galleries (and once I get the galleries loaded, the 2011 Amazon photos), were taken during our stay as guests at the Tahuayo Lodge, and Amazon Research Center of Amazonia Expeditions (web site, Facebook page). I can’t say enough about what a great experience they offer. Accommodations and meals were great and the staff was absolutely a joy to be around. As a guest, you receive your own personal guide for your stay. We were fortunate to get the same guide for both stays, and we think the world of our guide. They’ll work with you and tailor your excursions specifically to your interests. As a hint, be careful about mentioning something, even in passing, they’re very attentive and factor even passing comments (like, say “I haven’t gotten a good photo of a Paradise Tanager”) into your planned excursions. Their ability to spot wildlife borders on a “super power”. They are very knowledgable and share a lot of very interesting information..
After my recent trip to the Amazon I decided to go ahead and put together a dedicated site for my photography. Hopefully, it will make it easier to share photos in the future. I still have some work to do with a couple of the existing galleries (a couple of failed upload sequences has resulted in some duplicate photos and photos being out of sequence). I also have a couple more galleries I hope to put up over the next few weeks. I may even blog, briefly here and there about photography topics, but that depends upon finding time and material. In the mean time, enjoy the site, and feel free to post feedback here. — Update — Apparently, the wordpress theme I’m using was not good about some, admittedly, very large galleries I posted. I’m in the process of reworking galleries and will be adding more in the weeks tom come. I believe I have the site preforming well with the new galleries now.
