Back in Sirena again

Since my camera failed last time, I’ve returned to Sirena to get all the shots I couldn’t get last time. This time I’ve come with the preparedness that comes from failing in my previous attempt, and I’m excited to get back into the river and finally get those shark photos that I’ve been needing. I think the timing is better now, and I’ve brought along a local guide who has spent 8+ years in the park as well as enough people to help out with the daily grind. It’s an amazing place to “work” and I really hope that my photographs can help protect this area. I’m excited to be working directly with the Costa Rican Government who aim to use this project as an example of the parks biodiversity and its need for protection. I’ll be checking in daily, so come back to the blog and look for photos!
