Morelia in HDR

I’m not a big fan of HDR as so often it looks over-baked, but when you’re bored at home it’s kind of fun to see what you can create using the HDR processing. Her are a few photos from our trip to Morelia that I processed as HDR images. Enjoy!

P.S. While I was at I decided to swap out the skies using Skylum’s Luminar program. It does a pretty good job of replacing the sky with just a single click. The cloudy skies were all captured in San Miguel de Allende.

Eternal San Miguel de Allende Book

My good friend, Ted Davis, recently published a book called Eternal San Miguel de Allende: Celebrating the Hidden Treasures of a Timeless Town. Ted is an extraordinary photographer with his gallery (Ted Davis Galería de Fotografía) on Zacateros.

I had the pleasure and privilege to work with Ted on his book. It truly is the quintessential book of San Miguel de Allende. The are over 200 pages of photographs and stories. The book can be purchased directly from Ted on his publishing site TDGPress.com.

A Few Random Photos

Here are just a few random photos. With San Miguel on virtual lockdown due to the virus we’re just staying close to home and enjoying the kids and the beautiful sunsets.

Monarch Sanctuary in Michoacán

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Morelia and the monarch sanctuary in Michoacán. We stayed one night in Morelia and it’s a beautiful vibrant city.

Although there weren’t as many monarchs as last year, it was still a fantastic privilege to see one of the world’s natural wonders. All-in-all, it was a fantastic trip and here are a few of my favorite photos from our journey. Enjoy!

P.S. Thank you Connie and Sherry for another fantastic adventure!

3 Encuentro Nacional de Danza Folklória

Last night Bill and I walked up to Plaza Civica to see the Folklória dancers. This is Independence weekend in San Miguel so there were lots of people in the plaza for the show. I have to say that Folklória is one of my favorite things to watch. Last night the lighting wasn’t great, but the dancers were wonderful so I tried my best to get a few nice photos. Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Guadalajara Zoo

By no means are these all the photos I got at the Guadalajara Zoo, but I wanted to get a photos posted before we head back to San Miguel tomorrow. I had no idea what to expect at the zoo, but it was really fantastic! The animals seem well cared for and the zoo itself is quite beautiful. I would highly recommend visiting the zoo in you’re ever in Guadalajara. Enjoy!
