I have been spending quite a bit of time up in Spring this week, working on some different projects, which has meant I have been able to watch the sunset from one of my favourite spots on this island, Spring Top, or Spring View as its now been officially names, although I prefer the old version of the name.

One of the reasons for its popularity its is stunning near 360degree views across the island, but in particular spectacular views across the Bequia Channel towards St Vincent, making it a great location to watch the clouds roll in, along with the boats and yachts coming and going from the island.

For us photographers, it also has one of the few single trees on the island, located in a position for multiple views, so this week I decided to study the tree and use it in a few different sunset shots.

At this time of year the sun is setting way out to sea and will go further as we head towards mid summer so there's still plenty of opportunities to get some different shots. The only issue with this location is the visitors who come up and sit on the wall, the seats or just in the frame. Every now and again you get a romantic couple cuddling up which adds to the scene, but mostly is families or groups who come up and 'spoil' the view.

Anyway, I hope enjoy the study of a Lone Tree.

A couple of shots showing the varying cloud formations which are always rolling across the channel, which at varying stages of sunset, catch the light in countless ways.
