desert acacia of the mountains

for those of you familiar with my earlier work, you will notice that the photographs that i captured in israel have been presented in colour. it became rather evident that israel is an incredibly special place. i was taken by the wonderful scenery afforded almost everywhere we went! though it was my intent to continue with black and white photographs, the editing process dictated otherwise… israel, for some reason, presented more favourably in colour the deeper i got into the project.

i will indeed take a stab at presenting some of the work in b&w, but that is for another time… for now, take in this beautiful scene from the eilat mountains: a desert acacia tree surrounded by colourful sandstone cliffs and mountains as we were making our way to the exit of the red canyon.

lakeside tree

Lakeside Tree

a long-awaited trip to watkins glen in the finger lakes region of new york state finally materialized this past fall. i had driven through the region in the past and remember the charm of the towns that we passed through. this short trip however, was for visiting the watkins glen state park and for photographing it.

prior to reaching the park, i scoped out the area a little to find out what else was around. i stopped at the southern end of seneca lake at warren w. clute memorial park (aka lakeside park) and found this tree at the waterfront.

weather beaten charm

Weather Beaten Charm

Weather Beaten Charm (B&W)

there are some country roads just south of short hills provincial park in and around fonthill, ontario where the landscape oozes charm. in my travels, i have come across this weather beaten cabin – i fell in love with its setting and waited for the fall colours to arrive before photographing it. here it is at the early onset of those autumn colours.

standing around

VC1202

i love photographing lone trees – the countryside offers wonderful opportunities to do so. i came across this one near north pelham, ontario as i was exploring the country roads of the niagara region. the cow standing around was a bonus, I suppose… 😉

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.

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

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!

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… 😉
