The Pitons from Ladera | St. Lucia

We decided to venture out one day during our St. Lucian trip so that we could see the southern part of the island and have lunch at Ladera (a gorgeous spot nestled between the Gros Piton and the Petite Piton).  This was the view from our table.  Despite being hot and humid, I think I was in awe the entire time.  Talk about a view…the clouds and the overall scale of the landscape made for a stunning shot.

The Pitons | St. Lucia

The coastline of St. Lucia is beautiful.  It is lush, rocky for portions of it – and little fishing villages dot the western coast along with beaches.  The most majestic and striking part of the island’s geography is the vista you see here.  The Pitons (the Gros Piton and the Petite Piton) jut out into the sky just above the city of Soufriere, and just happen to be catching some gorgeous light in this shot – which was taken on our way home from an adventure around the island. The village gives the scene some scale – these things are just incredible.  Later this week I’ll feature a shot taken during lunch at a restaurant perched on one of the hills in the foreground that sits between the two pitons.
