I learned a lot about photography while living on the Yucatan in Xcalak, Mexico. The light, particularly near the water, was always beautiful and interesting to work with. This old fishing boat was about a hundred meters from my house, and I knew that one day it would make an interesting photograph.
One day, when the sea was particularly calm, I wader into the Caribbean water with all of my new camera gear, set the tripod in the muck, and made this photo, with a 30-second exposure, several minutes after the sun had already set. This photo has won some awards, and I think it is one of the earliest “good” photographs that I made.
