Bequia Sunset
Over the Plantation Jetty


Dusky pink sunset across the Plantation House jetty in Admiralty Bay, Bequia

The Plantation House Hotel, also known as the 'Sunny Caribe', has been empty for many years now and this week went up for sale by order of the mortgagee .... read Government. Despite its rocky recent history, it remains one of the best spots on the island and have many fond memories from it when it was open.

The jetty, some of which has now disappeared, provides a great foreground and lead-in line for any shot in the part of the bay.

A colourful sky with the dusky pinks of sunset also helps as the light catches the clouds high above, with the suns golden glow still hitting the horizon.

A great prelude to dinner with friends at the Fig Tree restaurant just up the bay from here.

The final image was taken a few minutes before the sun actually set using the Lee Big Stopper, ND110, with an exposure of 30 seconds to flatten out the waves and water, although causing some movement in the yachts. The couple sitting on the jetty however didnt move!
