Dubrovnik, Croatia

Sep 07, 2017 - Sea Cloud

We awoke this morning already anchored near Lokrum Island off the walled Venetian city of Dubrovnik. There was a slight chill, and we could feel fall in the air as we disembarked the ship to take the tenders ashore. We luckily beat the crowds and enjoyed the empty streets during our walking tour with Maris and Marijana. We enjoyed the city at our leisure as we had the entire day to explore, and even had time for a nap! Toward the end of the fabulous day, we were treated to a beautiful a cappella performance, and had the chance to eat on the ship before returning back to the Sea Cloud and heading off to Korčula.

About the Photographer

José Calvo

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Nicknamed “Indio” (Indian) because of his powers of observation and quiet nature, José has almost two decades of experience working as a naturalist and photography guide; as well as being recognized as an expert birder and nature photographer in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is rich in biodiversity — over 893 bird species have been recorded in the country. Since very young José spent all of his free time in the outdoors in the forest, where he soon fell in love with the birds. He particularly enjoys listening to their calls, and watching their behavior. Oddly enough, another one of Jose’s passions is science and technology, and because of this, he was among the first in Costa Rica to experiment with digital photography. As the technology quickly improved so did his love for it.  He truly believes that nature photography is the perfect combination of both of his passions.
