North Shore Sunset

Another summer day and another post about a far-flung Caribbean Island…. Maybe I am projecting towards where I want to be right now. I took this sunset photo on Jamaica’s North Shore about half way between Montego Bay and Falmouth. There is a little restaurant here and not much else. It is really only a kitchen with…

Sunset on Open Water

A beautiful view of the setting sun to close out the day after a full day of exploring the tiny Caribbean island of Martinique.

Martinique Canal

The small Caribbean Island of Martinique is home to both natural beauty and devastation. This picturesque canal, lined with colorful housing and boats, is a good example of urban beauty found in an amazing place with a history of natural disasters.
