Ruins in the Yucatan

Sorry it's been awhile. Here are a few that I took while on vacation in Cancun a few weeks ago. Sorry the exif is stripped. The night shots were taken at iso 3200 from a monopod with a Nikon 18-105VR lens with the purple shot taken at 1EV over 3200.

Excellent comps, yakfisher!

I must say I much more enjoy the daylight images than the colorful nighttime lights. Makes it feel more like we could be back there closer to that time.

Thanks for sharing these with those of us who don't travel that much. smilesmile

Thanks Steve! I forgot to mention that I did not do any noise reduction to these.

You sure know how to rub it in! Love the shots. I've been to Tulum but haven't made it to Chichen Itza. All the shots are nice, but I too like the daytime shots!

I've been to Tulum but haven't made it to Chichen Itza.

I've been to Canada but haven't made it to any other foreign country. Well, except the few days I spent in Macon, Georgia. gringringrin

Macon might actually qualify as another planet grin

The trouble with the daytime shots is this; they are extremely hard to get without other tourists. The light show was pretty impressive, it is accompanied with a narrative that talks about the history of the Mayan people. Unfortunately, between taking pictures and my poor spanish, I only understood maybe 10 or 15 percent of the narative.

I would recommend Chichen Itza if you get the chance. It is impressive and awe inspiring!

Wonderful images! We were in Tulum in early December, and my biggest frustration was getting anything without other tourists! We'll have to do Chichen Itza on another trip.

Funny, I'd have sworn we were in the Amazon rain forest looking for some of those orchids last summer! grin

Sorry, Yak, I'll get off this and let discussion go back to your shots. By the way, we had some trouble the day we were at Tulum with people in the way, but I think it was a pretty slow day and I was able to get a few.

I'll add to the list of those who have been to Tulum and points south of that, but not Chichen Itza! I do like the night shots myself especially the first night shot, looks like a great vacation!

We had Tulum on our list of places to go when I was in the Riviera Mya but it rained like h-e-double hockey sticks, all day so we had to cancel that trip. thanks for the pictures to rub in what we missed.

Great shots.

Nice shots! We were at Tulum many years ago and last time down there my wife went to chicken pizza the day I went fishing. So she took pics and I caught fish laugh

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
