one of the frustrating aspects of travelling by public transport is that you have no control where you stop. there have been countless moments when i've been getting a cross-country bus and seen amazing sights and landscapes which i would have loved to, but been unable to, photograph. because of these missed opportunities i fully appreciated the freedom we enjoyed by paying a taxi driver to take us around the island of santa cruz in the galapagos. we were driving back from the giant tortoises of el chato when we saw the giant yellow sun appear from behind the clouds and drift down below the tree-lined hills. it was one of those sights which improved with each corner we passed so i asked the driver to stop on at least 4 occasions, each time standing on the back of his car zooming and clicking towards the light. it was a perfect storm of timing and lighting and one of the many magical riches the galapagos bestows upon its visitors.
