We have finally selected, cropped, enhanced and uploaded some of the photos from our Cuba trip to the online photo gallery. As many of you know I was in Cuba from April 16th to May 2nd, together with my Alenka. We visited all of the 14 provinces.

We had two cameras – my older one but still great Sony F717 and Alenka’s new Nikon D80. More than 1,700 photos are resting in our home computer now and we somehow we managed to choose around 700 photos to our online gallery.

Enjoy the photos here

Here’s a little sneak peek:


ooops.. not so little ;)

Enjoy the photos here

Wonderful pictures Martin. It looks like you had a great time. I am glad you had the opportunity to go see the place. Those of us in the US are still under travel restrictions to Cuba, but someday that will change.

Ok, so how many of those Cuban cigars did you bring home with you?

Wow. I went through about 350 photos in the on-line gallery and bookmarked for further browsing later. Outstanding photography.

Thanks Martin’
I looked through about half of them. Some very interesting subjects (people). It’s nice to be able to see how the people are doing down there. Lots of beautiful color also.
I’ll be viewing them again.

Grandma smokes cigars!

Did you recruit any to LumberJocks while in Cuba? What types of wood do they have there? Visit any cabinet shops?

I see you didn’t stop any cigars by Columbus Indiana while going home….!

Nice photos Martin. Hope you got to see some of Cuba without a camera…1700 photos! Sounds like my vacations! I usually get asked if I enjoyed the vacation… I then tell my friends that I’ll have to wait until the photos get developed to see!
