turquoise tides at trunk bay…

Trunk Bay

 

Trunk Bay…oh, that water.  I was mesmerized by the intense turquoise color that the curl of the little waves would take on, just before breaking on the sand.  I will admit, I was squatting in the surf for quite some time while attempting to capture the perfect turquoise wave curl and crest in this photo.  So many photos with the timing just off by a bit…one glorious photo with the timing spot on.  Totally worth it.

In the background of the photo, you can see Trunk Cay…and under the sea surface is the snorkeling trail!  Here is a tidbit for those looking to visit Trunk Bay:  this is the beach that cruise ship tours get dropped off at when the ships dock in St. Thomas, so to avoid those insanely crowded days (why would you want your paradise filled with loud strangers?), get a copy of the USVI informational magazine when you arrive in the islands (its easy to find).  It lists the arrival dates/times of the cruise ships, so you can play your beach day for a day when it is just islanders and the few tourists stationed on the island.  Here is the link to the week’s cruises:  USVI Cruise Ship Schedule

Of course, this photo was taken with the Powershot G12…

Stay tuned for more posts!!!


tempting tranquility…

Tranquility

So this little slice of heaven was taken at Playa Norte on Isla Mujeres, Mexico.  Have I mentioned how much I loooooove Isla??  I did?  Oh, yes.  That’s right.  I found it impossible to drink in all of the serene shades of blue so I snapped tons of photos to help me in that quest at a later time.

I love the blue gradient in this photo…from the turquoise of the water all the way up to the sky’s blue hue, with an interspersing of fluffy white clouds!

To help you slip into this tranquil moment, picture the breeze gently blowing, waves softly crashing on the soft white sand, and the bathtub-temperature water enveloping your increasingly relaxed body.  Ah, there you go.  Now you’re there.

Yup.  Taken with the trusty Canon Powershot G7.
