I have written this entry several times in an effort to save my integrity but came to the conclusion it just wasn't possible.
I have seen many photographers go to great lengths to get an image. Some create get laughs, others great horror, and yet others are just downright scary.
While my friend Ethan Meleg was capturing that really impressive image, 2nd from last, reported on his blog entry 25 June, he didn't give you the entire picture ... figuratively speaking.
I had the worst view in the house, and it was a really, really small island so I had nowhere to run and hide. So I will let you draw your own conclusions, but Ethan Meleg walking around hot rocks in wet boxers just kinda put me off my feed, if you know what I mean.
Now that I have picked on Ethan sufficiently over these last two entries, I will show in the next post a handful of my favourite images from our trip that will show he is a pretty decent guide in addition to being a damned fine photographer ... even if he has no shame!
Sorry ladies but I didn't have my zoom lens on for this sequence ... and I'm glad I didn't!
