Photoblog: The world, one image at a time.

hello hawksnest…

Welcome to Hawksnest Beach!!  I love this silhouetted portal to the sea!  This was one of my first glimpses of the splendor of St. John.  Upon our arrival to the island, it was a torrential downpour, making checking out the beaches a little less than desirable after a full day of traveling.  We settled into our house, Blue Moon Rendezvous, and then went into Cruz Bay to plant ourselves at a cafe to get some beachfront munchies, while watching the rain streaming down through the palms onto the water and sand.  Fortunately, the rain stopped just before sunset, so we raced up to the North Shore and stopped at the first easily accessible beach–Hawksnest!  And, oh how gorgeous it was!  I dipped my toes in the water and then started taking some photos with long exposure since the light was starting to dwindle.  Of course, this one was taken with the  Canon Powershot G12.

Sorry for the long delay between posts!  But stay tuned for more tropical shots!
