This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

Tulum is an late classic Mayan center along the coast of the Yucatan peninsula.  In this view you can see the main Castle  of Tulum in the distance on the edge of the cliff where it enjoys a commanding view of the sea. For this view you have to descend to the water level and walk to the end of the beach.  Be prepared to get wet.  This photo was taken with a 24mm focal length on the Nikon 24-70mm zoom with a Nikon D700 camera and polarizer.
The monuments of Tulum are in a park-like setting with blooming trees and manacured terrain.  On the right is a carved human face on the corner of a Temple.  Once again, I arranged to arrive as soon as the monument opended to avoid the many tourists who were arriving by the bus load as I was leaving the park.
Not far from the monumnts of Tulum and Chichén Itzá is the quaint town of Valladolid with its colorful colonial facades
Across for the square pictured above is the old Franciscan Convento do San Bernardino de Siena dating to around 1560.  The shot above is one of the many minimal graphic displays in the interior of the building.
