from the trail

From The Trail

from my latest and long-awaited trip to california in may/june of 2015. my sister, emmanuelle, and i went for a day visit to the magnificent terranea resort in rancho palos verdes, south of los angeles. we met her boyfriend’s family; there for a gathering on the weekend.

the day was spent talking, eating and relaxing. at a certain point during the mid afternoon, we walked the trails to the west of the resort, scoping possible locations for taking some shots. by around 7pm, i got my gear together and headed out with them again to see how the light was doing. this shot of pelican cove and the point that houses the point vicente lighthouse was taken from the terranea trails on the grounds of the resort as dusk was approaching.

a fond farewell

A Fond Farewell

a fond farewell indeed… on the last few days of my trinidad adventure, i headed up to blanchisseuse, a small village on the north coast of trinidad. i had meant to (finally) photograph the old spring bridge at the end of the paved north coast road. alas, when i got there, there were construction crews and heavy equipment about – so much for capturing a piece of history!

i made my way back towards home stopping here and there… fittingly there was some inclement weather about as i set up to photograph this scene from a covered concrete deck on the beach. farewell to thee trinidad and to all my trini friends… you will me missed.

in full bloom

In Full Bloom

the pride of trinidad and tobago! trinbagonians are in awe of these beautiful flowering trees. there are generally three varieties to be found on the twin republic islands in the caribbean: pink, yellow and white. though referred to as poui trees in t&t, they are also known as pink tecoma, pink trumpet or trumpet trees. not unlike, the north american and japanese cherry blossoms, they also flower for a very short time. however, when in full bloom they dot the landscape with a splash of colour. this one was photographed at the rock garden in the queen’s park savannah of port of spain.
