Caribbean Storms pass by St Vincent

Storms pass through the Bequia channel, seen from Spring out towards St Vincent

One of the great things about being a Professional Photographer spending time out here in the Caribbean, is that you get to see things that you would not get to see too often back in the UK.

Here, storms can be short, sharp, heavy downpours as they pass by, helping us here by not only watering the plants etc. but as we depend on rainwater for our supplies, by filling up the water tanks.

These storms are sometimes large storm systems, especially now as we enter the hurricane season, or more normally during the year, they are small independent storms that come and go quite quickly. It was one of these smaller storms that I watched pass by the other day.

Sitting on top of Spring, in brilliant sunshine, looking out across the Bequia Channel towards St Vincent, clouds started rolling in across the hills and mountains of St Vincent. After a while a storm came rolling across the channel, missing both islands, but giving a great display of weather. A couple of yachtsmen got quite a dowsing as they sailed over to St Vincent .... all part of the fun of sailing.
