Description Talk about lucky! We were all trying to get a decent picture of these playful river dolphins. I changed my camera from RAW format to highest JPG simply because I was afraid of running low on disk storage and I was shooting on continuous mode. Sure enough, I did not even know that I had these shots until later, on the big boat, when I went through all the shots. This dolphin had breached at the far left side of the frame, but I did get two pretty good images. For this reason, I would not recommend getting prints larger than say 8x12 of these frames.

My wife and I love to travel - usually pulling our little camper, but we made trips to Machu Picchu and The Galapagos in 2007, and 2 weeks driving in England to start 2008. For a retirement reward to ourselves in early June 2012, we spent two weeks in France. We started in Nice and then took a week long cruise up the Rhone River before spending just a few days in Paris.
In January 2014, we spent a fantastic week on the Amazon River above Iquitos, Peru.
I have been taking pictures for over 50 years, so I have quite a variety of images. Check my website if you are interested in some old pix.
