Wow NHL,

Lovely photo, a lovely BIF photo complimented by the stunning background. Where exactly was this photo taken? (you wrote tropic birds in another section of the forum)...

Well done. Love your images always!

Thank!

The images were taken in Little_Tobago a small islands pair NE of Tobago itself, only accessible by boat, and a long climb up the rocky trails (so watch your equipments weight)...
-> It doesn't help that I took both my Nikon and Canon gear as a backup that day! :lol::-):G
