deloraine cliffs

Deloraine Cliffs

on the east coast of trinidad, in between cocos bay and mayaro bay lies point radix – a plateau that juts out into the atlantic ocean. the ben deloraine nature reserve is situated there on a 250 acre private parcel of land offering accommodations and camping for “…people who are environmentally conscious and who appreciate natural settings with basic amenities and alternative energy (solar and wind).” – pointradixmayaro.com

on this day, i was afforded a visit of the grounds, namely to take a dirt road all the way down to the private beach, where this photo was taken. it is my understanding that the cliffs are composed of sandstone and claystone.

columns and arch

Columns And Arch

when one wanders around the bus terminal in the city of san fernando in trinidad, this old derelict structure can be found on the north end of the lot. such was my luck on a lazy sunday afternoon a few weeks ago. there is so much architectural beauty in this country, but alas, preserving the past does not seem to be a priority… 🙁

marlon’s tree

Marlon's Tree

who is marlon? i have not the faintest; but he thought enough of himself to carve out his name on the trunk of this prominent tree in tortuga, trinidad.

view of the hill

View Of The Hill

the hill in question is naparima hill aka san fernando hill (aka ‘the hill’ by locals).  it lies in the centre of the city of san fernando and today is a recreational area with great views of the gulf of paria on trinidad’s west coast. on clear days it affords inland views of central trinidad. it also contains a charming banquet hall that can be rented for all sorts of special events, making whatever function even more memorable.

photographed from the hills around the town of gran couva, i have searched high and low for a good vantage point to capture it from; thus far this is the best i have found. alas, it seems that the closer you get to it, the more the sight lines become obscured by the urban sprawl. i will keep searching… 😉

the race

The Race

look! people! for those of you who have been following me for a while, you will undoubtedly notice that very rarely are there people in my shots. if they are, it’s usually incidental. in this case, i did not have a whole lot of time to prepare… it was another late afternoon at the beach and i was scoping out a place to shoot from. as i was doing that, there was a group of about 10 guys all lined up about to race each other. knowing that light was fading, i could get a long exposure of the guys running towards me by stopping down to the smallest aperture (f22 in this case). of course i wasn’t sure it was going to work – instinct kicked in and this is what resulted… 😉

what do you think? does this image work?

tree by the falls

Tree By The Falls

after having explored the roads of mount saint george in the south of tobago the previous afternoon, we located green hill falls. the lighting was not optimal then, so i planned to come by the next morning when it would be better. it was touch and go for a bit as the falls were not as sheltered from the early morning sun as i had thought they would be… gentle cloud cover resulted in very decent morning light; a bit of patience, thankfully, yielded this photograph.

catch a wave 1, 2 & 3

Catch A Wave 1

Catch A Wave 2

Catch A Wave 3

little englishman’s bay again – on a different day. this time, however, there was some very decent wave action. as you can imagine, i took shot after shot here in the hopes of getting some good ‘crashes’. these are the three that made the cut 😉

remnants of a jetty

Remnants Of A Jetty

another scene that i did not get to my satisfaction the first time around. these pillars belong to a once-standing jetty just off windward road in barbados bay, tobago.

interestingly, “the first session of the tobago legislative council and assembly was held in april 1768 at georgetown, barbados bay ([today called] studley park) where the first town was established, but never finished.” – mytobago.info

late afternoon at roadside

Late Afternoon At Roadside

heading west on the northside road of tobago, you eventually come upon the village of castara, followed by one of tobago’s finest beaches: englishman’s bay. just before reaching that beach, however, this scene greets you. though it is an unmarked cove, i believe locals refer to it as little englishman’s bay. now, through my two visits to tobago, i have photographed this scene multiple times, with little to show for it. on this day, however, i captured something i was satisfied with. again, because of the time of day, it afforded me a longer shutter time…

empty chairs and a crashing wave

Empty Chairs And A Crashing Wave

focusing time on the southern end of tobago this time around, we found this most incredible beach. people seemingly know it by either stonehaven bay (as the sign indicates) or as grafton beach and is located in the town of black rock. either way, this is my favourite beach of the twin island republic of trinidad and tobago. it’s a rather long sandy beach with great waves for body surfing (or indeed just plain old surfing), with a beachfront restaurant and a couple of resorts. here it is photographed late in the afternoon, affording a longer exposure…
