Surfing, Apple Bay, Tortola British Virgin Islands

This is surfers favorite time of the year for surfing.  I took these pictures at Apple Bay Tortola BVI.  Another favorite spot is Josiah's Bay.  If I get chance later, I will drive down there and see if I can get some more pictures.  I remembered to change my flash settings to none to get the rich-true colors of the beach.

Leaking Hose

I am really enjoying taking pictures of water drops close up.  It is very interesting and it is really fascinating me!

Caribbean Roosters

Isn't he lovely??? I took these pictures during my lunch hour today!!! He was just looking to see if I would throw out any food for him but I disappointed him because I was only taking pictures of him!  I realized I made a mistake though, it was a beautiful day and my camera was set to automatic flash.  I should have changed the settings to no flash.  As you will notice the color of the grass is looking a bit whitey.  I think without the flash the color would have looked more greener.

Photo Of Water Fountain - Not Satisfied

Proud Mother

This is my daughter, she is presently studying in the Caribbean island - Trinidad but she paid me a visit for the Christmas holidays, in Tortola British Virgin Islands.  She looks so pretty in these pictures.  My son is a handsome young man but it is very difficult to take pictures of him.  He either turns his back or make funny faces.

Parrots - How I Take Photos Through The Fence

These are some more pictures that I took at the Botanic Gardens through the fence.  My only problem is that I was not able to get a closer shot of the birds.

I took this picture at the Botanic Garden. This turtle proceeded to approach me and I thought he was being friendly but then I realized that he was hungry and wanted to see if I had anything to eat.  Unfortunately I did not.

You Choose

I took these pictures at dusk yesterday which one do you prefer?  I am a sucker for sunsets so I really like the first one.

Apparently moths are very deep sleepers.  I positioned myself very close to this insect to get these close up shots and it did not budge.  I guess it could not have been bothered by my presence.

Rain drops on glass

I took these pictures from the inside of my vehicle, my aim was to focus on the rain drops on the windows. I feel blessed that I have this gift for love of photography, to me it gives me the opportunity to 'see' things the we take for granted.

Water Art

Today I found myself not having any pictures to post so I took a friend's advise, to take the simplest thing around me and make art out of it.  So I went to my bathroom and took pictures of the water dripping from my shower head and believe me, I had lots of fun doing it!  I took about 40 pictures and I like this one the best!  Bottom line, you don't have to go very far to make art!!!

There was a time in my life that I wanted to own a motore bike but I am wiser now.

Glass or not

I took this picture through the glass from the cinema complex and I am impressed.  Does not look like there was any glass between myself and the field.

School Is Closed - How I Took Photos Through The Fence

I was amazed at home great this photo came out. I took it through the fence and you can barely see the fence. It is a pity that I did not take note of the blog that I got this tip from. It is a great tip!!

Candy in a pod

This is actually a wild flower that I found outside my house.  Actually it is a pod that bloomed open to expose these candy looking seeds.  I did not realize how pretty this flower was until I took pictures of it.
