Mount Quackatoa

Okay, so it is really the Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna, Costa Rica, not the Krakatoa volcano in Indonesia. But who can pass up a pun that bad?

Not me, that's who.

I'm back from Costa Rica and digging through the mountain of email. But I could not resist sticking a photo our trip mascot up. For those of you who have been living under a rock, it's from Aaron Johnson's What The Duck comic strip. (Plush version here.)

Lots to do to catch up, coupla posts to write from shoots in CR, and will be sticking trip pix in this Flickr set, if you are interested.

And the little Canon G9 came in handy to underexpose that backlit volcano and sync "What The" at 1/500th at f/5.6 at ISO 80 to bring him back up. Fortunately, the G9 will sync at any speed if you know the trick.
