Visiting Isla Floreana in the Galápagos Archipelago

Isla Floreana Sunrise

Here are some sunrise pictures from the morning after we arrived. The story continues on the next page.

The misty mauve island a few minutes before sunrise.  

Nine of Cups lightly slumbering in the early morning.   A lava heron paid us a visit; it is an endemic species (that is, found only in the Galápagos).

The sun finally peeks over the volcano and the bright yellow light floods the anchorage.   The brilliant sunlight illuminates the upper reaches of the island while the lowlands remain in shadow.


Two boobies fly past our boat.   Trees ashore at sunrise.

Surf crashes on a rocky point at sunrise.
