imminence

a few minutes after the previous shot (the advance) and the storm clouds are now seemingly clawing at the aqueduct in caesarea, israel.

shortly after this series of shots, we made our way to the car just in time. it was a heavy downpour, alright…

the advance

on this morning the light was constantly changing as clouds were periodically moving in front of the sun and then away again. we were on the site for a couple of hours and eventually, it became apparent that a storm was coming off of the mediterranean sea. here you have then, the aqueduct at the beach in caesarea photographed with a storm advancing towards shore.

morning light

located roughly midway between tel aviv and haifa, caesarea maritima (the original city) was built by king herod between 25 – 13 bce. the roman aqueduct was built to supply water to the city when the wells they were using as sources of water were not sufficient.

we awoke this morning to some clouds – finally! the whole day would be unsettled, but i had hope that the shots might have more drama in them… thankfully they would.

we started out by reaching the roman aqueduct by today’s modern town of caesarea in the morning. as we arrived the sun was breaking out from the morning’s cloudy weather.

beyond the cove

Beyond The Cove

continuing along the one-way conzelman road, after having left hawk hill in the marin headlands, i stopped at battery rathbone mcindoe to look at the old powder and shell room structures and to take in the wonderful views the site has to offer.

here, you have part of bonita cove in the foreground with the south tower of the golden gate bridge and san francisco beyond…

incidentally, construction of the battery started in 1904 and completed in 1905 – it was initially named after lt. samuel b. rathbone, a u.s. artillerist, who died of wounds received in action at queenstown heights, upper canada, in 1812. in 1922, the east half of the battery was renamed for brig. gen james f. mcindoe, an engineer officer who was serving in france and died there in 1919. the battery was deactivated in 1948.

just about

VB9172

after spending some time at lands end on the western tip of san francisco, i ventured out towards the golden gate bridge following a section of the beautiful 49 mile scenic drive.

as was the case the last time i had been in san francisco, it was cloudy and overcast. i found the approximate spot i was at when ‘a february scene” was photographed from baker beach and took another shot; this time the tops of the two bridge towers still enveloped in low clouds and fog of this late morning.

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.
