I like this one because it was an absolutely delicious breakfast!  At a cafe last month in Victoria, BC.

Just sand patterns at low tide Allan. The danger was not sink holes but crocs in the river to the right. They do croc spotting cruises on that river as it goes through mangrove right where the pic stops. Where I stood was a vast expanse of sand at lowest tide. I was on my own on the beach, totally exposed. Running would not have been an option. These things we do for Alamy...

Yes, she's a very keen gardener and does well growing tomatoes and cucumbers in here greenhouse. She went on holiday this summer for two weeks though and came home to find the garden pretty much dead thanks to a summer of hot temperatures and no rain. The greenhouse survived thanks to an automatic watering system but all the seedlings she grew and planted in the garden didn't make it!

We regularly dive at Tulamben, in Bali. Last trip, I tried to find/photograph live cowries sitting on eggs. As this is done underneath boulders, it meant a lot of rock turning. Once found, the cowrie will quickly move off the eggs in an effort to get back to the safety of a dark spot, and as they protect the eggs by covering them with their foot, time is critical. Add to that, lots of fish enjoy snacking on live shells, so getting decent photos is quite a challenge and needs to be done very quick for the safety of the little shell and it's future offspring. To add to the challenge, live shell photos should always show the eye.

Technically not the best image ever, but I thought it wasn't too bad given as it was taken handheld with a Sony RX100 (no fancy, expensive macro lenses for me! :-) )

Getting lazy on Holbox Island (Mexico)…

Think 'Ceviche' or 'Aguacate relleno de camarones' on the beach with a cold beer…
