Continuing our “Global Rescue Members in Action” series, today we feature John Atchley, who entered our “In the Spirit of Adventure” photo contest with the sunrise piece presented below, taken in La Mosquitia, Gracias a Dios, Honduras.  Read on for a glimpse into Atchley’s escape to a simpler world on his fishing excursion.


“The photo was taken on the southeast coast of Honduras, a region called La Mosquitia.  The area is very remote.  The local Indian group still moves around in dugout canoes.  This lady happened to come by just as the sun was coming up to the east.  I happened to be at this location in a tent camp on a fishing excursion.  To me, it is like you go back in time when you visit this area of Honduras. It would probably resemble Florida back around 1900 or so.  When you get out to the local lagoons to fish, you find you are the only outboard in any of the lagoons.  So needless to say, you get away from it all, which is what I like to do -- no noise, light, pollution, nothing but stars at night and plenty of sounds coming out of the jungle.  I must say that little photo on a point and shoot camera had plenty of worthy competition.”
