on the shore

On The Shore

mayaro beach on the southern east coast of the island of trinidad on an overcast day. the approach to this amazing 12 mile long beach is especially amazing as you drive a 2 lane highway through seemingly miles of coconut groves. though we did get to swim in the late afternoon when the clouds finally broke and the weather warmed up a bit, i am once again thankful for the magic these clouds performed…

Clouds Over The West 3

photographed from one woodbrook place due west on the same shoot, all within a half hour or so (4:50pm, 4:54pm and 5:28pm respectively). i love watching and photographing clouds perform their dance. i’m going to have to try some time-lapse photography one of these days.

Island Sprawl

not knowing a whole lot about the city i was moving to, i was taken aback by the sprawl of greater port of spain. here you have a view due east from one woodbrook place once again.

sunburst over palms

Sunburst Over Palms

on the drive towards toco, the road takes you to the northeastern-most point of the island of trinidad. there, one can visit the site of the galera point lighthouse (aka the toco lighthouse) and venture through a footpath to the very last rocks on the island. on this sunday afternoon i was fortunate enough to capture this amazing display of dramatic light and clouds from those very rocks.

boat on the river

Boat On The River

on the way to a friend’s country home in toco, i came across the salybia river and beach area, where this boat was stationed. loved the trees on both sides of the river with their exposed roots.

waterfall sunset

VA3534

exploring is half the fun when i am in a new place. well, trinidad is still quite new to me and it is indeed a lot of fun exploring the rugged beauty of this island. unlike the popular tourist destinations in the caribbean, trinidad is not ‘manicured’ for tourists so a lot of discovery is left to your own abilities and desire for adventure. rough roads, when they are available, are part of the game – otherwise it is park the car and hike…

in any event, the many times i headed to maracas beach i kept seeing a steep road veering off the north coast road. on this day i decided to explore it on my return home. not knowing where it lead, i climbed it gingerly not knowing whether to continue on it or not. as i was climbing, i noticed a group of people hanging about waiting to enter what turned out to be a banquet hall type of facility. i asked a gentleman where the road led and whether i could continue my ascent. he replied that i could indeed continue, as it would take me all the way to maraval – where i needed to go to get back home.

so i continued and was rewarded with a beautiful experience. i passed homes clinging to mountain ledges, saw colourful pepper (pimento) fields and experienced a narrow and winding road like i’d never been on before. by the time i had reached maraval, i had passed small villages and some beautiful scenery. quite frankly, i felt exhilarated after the drive – i had never seen anything like this before!

this is waterfall sunset; so named because it was taken on saut d’eau road (french for waterfall in some caribbean communities), in the paramin hills of northwestern trinidad.
