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.

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

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!

Three Sisters At Low Tide

a gorgeous afternoon gave way to a beautiful evening, complete with great clouds and a lovely susnset… here are the three sisters on my last trip to columbus bay before leaving trinidad and tobago; the exposed sand ripples a bonus with the low tide.
