Aruba is one of the most fantastic places in the Caribbean. Not only does it offer wonderful climates all the year round but it is also home to some fantastic creatures.
All over the island you will see these large lizards sunning themselves. They almost make you feel you are in some pre-historic movie.
I managed to capture this one as he was warming up on the rocks. It was obvious he had not anticipated the force of the sea as he got soaked.
This image was captured with a Canon 5D Mark II with a 70-200 f2.8L USMii lens with 2 x Extender in Aperutre Priority Mode. f/10 at 1/800 sec exposure from 7.1 metres away using spot metering due to the very bright sunlight and dark rocks, exposure was dampened down -1 with a bit of colour correction and balance in post editing.
