This picture is full of miracles. First, if you recognized this as the head of a sea turtle, that's a miracle in itself. But there are others too. The fact that I was able to get a picture this sharp while focusing manually in pich darkness is a miracle. This turtle was laying eggs, that in itself is a miracle, but also the fact that we were able to see it is a miracle.
This picture has so much detail that I had to let you all see it full size. Just click on the picture so you can see all the details.


  1. I found this picture to be rare; strange, for this reason:
    - Although it is not beautiful, the picture itself, the message or meaning that it carries makes it SPECIAL.

    It is also very hard to get such sharp focus in manual in the dark!!! Good job Joel!!!

    The details are.....just.....WOW!!!

    This one is in my top five. I like it very much.

  2. Great memories! :)


    P.S. Sorry for taking so long to post a comment. Thought I needed a profile.

  3. Great to see you coments, Brittany. Thanks.
    Indeed, the memories give added depth to the picture.
