New Photos from the Galapagos Islands: Black Turtle Cove

I’ve returned to shoot the Galapagos this week and I’m excited to bring you some new photos from the field. Today is a selection from Black Turtle Cove, in the northern part of the island of Santa Cruz. This location is only accessible by water and contains an incredible amount of wildlife both on land and in the sea. So far this trip has provided better opportunities than expected, and the weather has been fantastic! I will be adding new images from around this amazing place in the days to come.
