clouds over the temple

Clouds Over The Temple

for those of you paying attention, you might recall that i posted about the temple in the sea a little while back when i added the photographs at rest  and peaceful reflection. i made mention of the fact that there were renovations at the temple and that i did not get any shots of it… well, i forgot this one! indeed from this angle you don’t see the renovations in the courtyard at the front of the temple. again if you are interested in its fascinating history and origins, please read here.

here you have the temple in the sea under those same wonderful clouds of that day.

sundown from the market

Sunset  From The Market

returning from icacos along southern main road, the sun was starting its descent in the late afternoon. i was looking for a place to set up my gear and ended up at the otaheite bay fish market. there were many people milling about when i parked the car. i made my way to one of the docks and started shooting…

waiting 1

Waiting 1

a drive to the southwestern tip of the island of trinidad, took me to the village of icacos. virtually deserted on this day, i scarcely saw anyone around save for a few kids playing on the street leading to this beach/fishing area. i suspect these pirogues were awaiting their owners for the next fishing trip out in the bay…

lax… not!

LAX... Not

so… it’s not lax, but it is right?

another one of those things that popped up after the fact… funny but i get the feel of an airport on this one, but not lax! in any event, here you have port of spain, the capital of trinidad and tobago, due east from one woodbrook place before sunrise.

queen of the cove

Queen Of The Cove

every once in a while something happens that slips by me when i am photographing and i do not take note of it until the editing process… this photograph is one of those instances.

the composition set, i was focused on the water – wanting the foreground to be completely covered with it. at the time of day, the tide was too high and i could not get the reflection off the wet sand that i really wanted. unbeknownst to me was the young lady on the cliff, i seriously did not notice her there… what a pose! what a gift! queen of the cove.

sunburst at the lookout

Sunburst At The Lookout

before reaching maracas beach on the island of trinidad, you will come across a lookout area where vendors are set up selling various trini delicacies. thankfully, i left the beach on time to admire a wonderful prelude to the sunset from there. on this day the sun and clouds performed their beautiful magical tricks and this is the resulting capture…

Peaceful Reflection

from the same shoot as at rest, here is another boat resting until its next mission, under those great clouds and rare, wonderful early afternoon light.

at rest

At Rest

on my very first getaway from greater port of spain, i headed to waterloo on the west coast of the island of trinidad. the overcast day, absent the habitual heat and sun, made it ideal for a road trip! located there is the temple in the sea (under renovations for my visit), a well known hindu site of worship. (if you are interested in its fascinating history and origins, please read here).

photographically, there was not much to be done with the temple itself on this day, so instead i focused on the boats resting in the waters just north of the temple. the clouds were doing their thing and provided for a wonderful sky and a lovely light for this early afternoon – not usual for this time of day.

i plan on returning there soon to photograph the temple itself.
