the same tree as ‘perched’ (the previous image posted); a tad later, as dusk was setting in… a mirror image produced in the digital darkroom.

Perched

when driving to the southwestern tip of trinidad, you invariably end up at columbus bay. this is a different spot from the last few photographs… this was taken at the end of the road when passing through the village of icacos. a short walk along the beach and this leafless tree is there in the water… the pelican perched there is an added bonus!

Three Sisters At Low Tide

a gorgeous afternoon gave way to a beautiful evening, complete with great clouds and a lovely susnset… here are the three sisters on my last trip to columbus bay before leaving trinidad and tobago; the exposed sand ripples a bonus with the low tide.

the great house and bridge

VB8007

lopinot is a small village in trinidad named after compte josef charles de lopinot de la fresilliere. he acquired acreage on this site and settled the lopinot valley around 1806 and was a significant contributor to cocoa production in trinidad. what remains on the site today is his great plantation house (photographed) and two cocoa drying sheds. the great house has been converted into a museum. the rest of the complex is a lovely landscaped park with walking trails and access to a nearby stream.

legend has it that on rainy and stormy nights his ghost will make an appearance, as documented on ghost hunters international (episode: rising from the grave). 😉

on a side note, i attempted to photograph at this location on more than one occasion but just could not get it right. thankfully, i finally got it the way i wanted on my last attempt before leaving trinidad!

back in canada…

greetings! it’s been a while since i posted any new photographs… those of you who have been following along will recall that my family and i have moved back to canada and have settled in st. catharines, ontario.

we’re really enjoying life in this smaller community. toronto has gotten a tad too crazy for me (read unaffordable) and i can certainly live without all the traffic of the big city! 😉

trinidad and tobago was a fantastic experience that i will cherish for a long time to come… it certainly yielded some great photo opportunities, that have already been posted.

what will follow over the next number of days will be the last of my collection from t&t. those will eventually be followed by photos of southern california including coastal scenes from the pacific coast highway, as well as images from los angeles and san francisco…

thanks for your continued support – just a reminder that open edition images are available directly from fineartamerica.com while my larger limited edition photographs are still available from me, directly through this website.

stay tuned, as the first of the new postings will be up a little later today.

cheers! i hope you all had a great summer,

serge
