Photographer's Note

Today I’m taking a break from my recent series of local shots. This is a view of Union Island, taken from Frigate Island after a short scramble through the vegetation. The town you can see is Ashton, a sleepy town where little seems to happen. The causeway was originally constructed as part of a marina, but when the plans went over budget the project was stopped, leaving some ugly remains but an otherwise peaceful and undisturbed, shallow bay. I had hoped to climb to the top of the small island but the undergrowth proved thicker than expected and my legs quickly came out in burning blisters. Having read about a tree whose leaves are so poisonous that one can die upon contact… I took a few hurried shots before returning to the shore. Fortunately the blisters subsided with no nasty after effects.

This is a stitch of three shots. Autostitch had some difficulty with this one, and the overlap is not perfect, but I thought I’d post it anyway. Click on the image for a larger view.
