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

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
