Taken at Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota, Florida just after sunset. I had just finished eating dinner in town and I noticed the incredible cloud formations and rushed to the beach to get some shots. I had tried all week of my vacation to reflect the scenes I was seeing at the beach, and I believe I accomplished representing this scene with this photo. Taken at f/10 for 30sec on 100ISO with a Cokin P 2 stop GND filter.
The second camp in Etosha, Halali, is located next to the Moringa waterhole. I spent my second night in Etosha staying at this camp and watching the waterhole for most of the day. When the Sun began to sink behind the horizon I watched this matriarchal group of elephants drinking at the waterhole. While observing the animals we also had an amazing sunset with an orange so saturated - I never saw anything like it before.
Just after the elephants had gone we saw a small group of black rhino drinking and also had some hyena and a leopard later that night. This is a magical place!

Taken at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, at the rim of a pond in the middle of the gardens. I've been trying to get a macro shot of a dragonfly's face for the past couple of weeks at that pond, but it is tough because they tend to look out on the water, not back toward where I can perch myself. They also fly away if you're not careful. For some reason, perhaps because it had just rained, this particular dragonfly took very little notice of me and let me get a decent shot-- this is perhaps the best I can do with the current equipment I am using.

Dulce is a small town in Northern New Mexico. This old wagon is standing in the middle of the town. I thought is was a good photography subject so I took few shots of it. Now that I went back to get more information about it, I had no idea this town had such a mysterious reputations.
