    It's February on the International Dateline.


    Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

    Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Fortnightly Challenge and Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

    My first attempt at underwater photography. It looks like I got one photo for the effort. ;) Already planning my next trip to Belize. :)

    Poor weather, no ND filter used for this one - but lots of water on the runway and some hefty use of the reverse thrust gives this effect. I'll get the EXIF shortly.

    Nice, I just got back from Belize on Sunday (hence the sea turtle above). :)

    Could you have gotten lower to take that shot? I think it would be neat to be looking up more at the face.

    I was shooting through a small hole the fence, and he was only there for a few seconds, so I didn't have time to set up a shot.

    But Belize is awesome for getting into wildlife photography, first time at the zoo, but I've been in the jungle for a bit, and I have gotten some really good bird photos. There are more of the jaguar the blog. Glad you liked Belize! Next time you have to visit Western Belize.

    Thanks for letting me know, it's fixed now. Sorry about that. Thanks for the comment! This was taken a couple of hours after the rain stopped, and the clouds helped to bring out the somber mood.
