Welcome to Petén

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Petén is not just Tikal, it is far more… Here we are at the Eastern most side of Lake Petén Itzá, on the town El Remate. Does anybody remember the event that led to the astronomical view of the moon with the “company” of two planets? What are the names of the planets? 🙂

Arturo Godoy PortraitAbout Guest Contributor: Arturo Godoy is married to photography after having divorced biology. He is now living in La Antigua Guatemala. He is starting up his photography business after making the transition from amateur photographer to a paid one, hence now a pro. In the few years he’s been in photography he’s had six expositions, and is working on two photographic books, one about expressions of women (a shared book with his dearest friends) and one about conservation of nature. His love to photography rises from expressing something through whatever kind of natural beauty that crosses him and his camera. You can browse and purchase photos from his portfolio at ArturoGodoy.com web site.
