PHOTO STORY: The incredible Galapagos Islands
A photo story of the best place on earth
We expected a lot before we boarded the plane to Santa Cruz, the main island of the Galapagos. We had heard so many stories and had seen many pictures of other travelers who went there before. But we thought one has to be very lucky to see all those unique creatures. Only two weeks later it was our own memory card that was full of thousands of pictures of beautiful animals and amazing landscapes.
In our today’s photo post we want to give you some impressions of the Galapagos Islands and show you where and how we took those pictures (for all hobby photographers). All the pictures were taken with our Canon EOS 500D and a Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Standard Zoom Lens. Get inspired and put this incredible piece of land on your travel bucket list; they are more than worth it. And if you are looking for more detailed information, have a look at our Galapagos on a budget post.
As you can see, the Galapagos Islands are indeed a very unique place on earth. And it is not only the fact that the archipelago is home to very special species, it is also the incredible landscape, the relaxing atmosphere, and the possibility to get close to the animals and to observe them in their natural habitat, that makes this place on earth unique. Trust me; you don’t need to be a nature lover to be amazed by its beauty.
