    • It was my second visit to the Yucatán. I didn’t realise the first one I saw in Chichen Itza (or was it Tulum?) was also a cenote as it was not covered like a cave. I would so love to go back right now and escape this cold!


  1. Well done, Dale. Sort of like layered prompts.
    I was reading about the ‘lyrical essay’ this morning. Your piece reminded me of it. Photos are, of course, magnificent. 🙂


  2. Q

    Cenote is not a word I was familiar with. And yet, it goes in the file just like that because come on, it has that flair. It HAS to be in the file. Melville would be so pissed if I didn’t give it the fast track to the files.

    As for the underwater shots, why do I always find underwater shots to be so haunting. It’s like a ghost story being told. It’s beautiful, it’s awe inspiring, but yes, to me it’s always very haunting as well.

    So few words, so much said.

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Proof positive we are always learning. You would love swimming in these waters. Glad you enjoyed both photos and words.

      Shalom and lotsa clear love,
