Calabash Cove is a small resort near the northernmost point of Saint Lucia. It’s a beautiful property that hugs the coastline, full of natural lush greenery and plantings that compliment the facility and the private cottages that dot the coastline. One of the features of the property is this lovely little gazebo that overlooks the shoreline and has an unbelievable vantage point towards the west and sunsets every night. I loved the flowers and the colors throughout the property, and the rich blue sky and amazing clouds that always seemed to hang around. Just at the left corner of the gazebo, a faint hit of a rainbow can be seen as a result from the rainstorm out on the horizon.
I think I’ll let this one speak for itself. After grabbing some dinner at Poco’s on a warm summer evening, I decided to sneak out as the check was coming to see what the sky was doing. It had hints of greatness, but I couldn’t see it because of the canopy…when I got outside, this was a pleasant surprise. Shot from the landing above Harpoon Willy’s on Bow Street.
Believe it or not, this is a single exposure…without much additional editing aside from adding some light into the foreground so you can make out the buildings and the tugboats.
There is something about the simple beauty of an evening sunset that leaves me speechless. Sitting at the River House over dinner last Thursday night, I was just stunned that I’m lucky enough to have this view as part of my normal weekly routine. I am greatly enjoying the return of the warm weather, so that I could sit out and enjoy the changing colors of the sky on a gorgeous night like this one was.
Here’s a view of Market Square and Congress Street from in front of the “Popovers Building” and next to the North Church. The new building at 6-16 Congress Street was built in the middle of the last decade, opening sometime around 2006/2007. The building’s varied brick exterior certainly blends in with its surroundings, and has been a vibrant addition to the business offerings of Congress Street, including River Run Bookstore, Popovers on the Square, Olde Port Properties, Life is Good..etc. etc. (As well as some residential condos).
I’ll feature more of the building itself in the future…but for today I wanted to share the brooding sky and the steeple with Breaking New Grounds looming in the distance. I must admit though, I miss Eagle Photo being located in the very spot where Popovers sits…it would be so convenient to buy photo gear…oh well, at least the tables and chairs will soon be out and occupied in the warmer weather!
