BAJA CALIFORNIA, SEA OF CORTEZ, MEXICO

BAJA Land & Sea Photography Retreat
January 4-11, 2013

Picture a remote desert coastline with crashing waves, swaying palm trees, and mountainous headlands. Then imagine the most beautiful sunrises ever. Magic happened and we were there to witness it, cameras ready.

These images are from the Lindblad/National Geographic Land & Sea Photography Retreat at the Rancho Las Cruces resort and on board the National Geographic Sea Bird in January 2013.

Two days of classes were rewarded with giant whale sharks, breeching humpback whales, acrobatic dolphins, and other-worldly landscapes. Teaching moments ranged from reviewing the basics of exposure and composition to advanced lighting painting and star trails.

Photo instructors included National Geographic Photographers Ralph Lee Hopkins, Bob Krist, and Michael Melford, along with our good friends from the B&H superstore, David Brommer and Gabe Biderman.
