sunburst over the three sisters

‘s Sunburst Over The Three Sisters

coastal erosion in southwestern trinidad, at columbus bay, has been occurring for centuries and indeed continues to take its toll at the present time. the captivating stacks there today, commonly referred to as the three sisters, are what is left of the once prominent ancient headlands of this area.

photographed after a dip in the warm waters in late march, here are the three sisters under a wonderful sunburst through the clouds.

sunburst over the bay

Sunburst Over The Bay

so… on our second last day in tobago, we chartered a boat to take us from batteaux bay around to pirate’s bay. little did we know that we would be in for the ride of our lives! the waters are their roughest around the end of the year (we were there from christmas eve to new year’s day). we first headed to the st. giles islands where we witnessed thousands of birds flying around – the main island is a bird sanctuary and is uninhabited. next was witnessing the water rush through london bridge (photo below) – an outcrop with an arch through the middle. we then saw dolphins swimming around us, as we made our way to pirate’s bay. alas, photographing during this boat ride yielded very little, as we were quite literally being tossed around on a small 20′ diving boat. but trust me when i tell you it was a ride i won’t soon forget! this was our destination for the first leg of the trip: pirate’s bay – a little cove inside the larger man-o-war bay. we were rewarded by a beautiful sunburst through the clouds above!

Sunburst Over Palms

on the drive towards toco, the road takes you to the northeastern-most point of the island of trinidad. there, one can visit the site of the galera point lighthouse (aka the toco lighthouse) and venture through a footpath to the very last rocks on the island. on this sunday afternoon i was fortunate enough to capture this amazing display of dramatic light and clouds from those very rocks.

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…
