Eleuthera Pictures, Images, Photos


I finally hacked my way through the forest of last year's journey and cultivated some fave photos of Eleuthera. I'm still noodling the panoramics / virtual reality images. A thumbnail of one of the panoramic photos from Bannerman Lighthouse is shown here. There are more panoramic images, some from Bannerman Lighthouse, Double Bay Beach, Kemp's Bay, etc., but I'm not going to publish them all at once. I'm anxious to get a few of these pictures printed onto canvas -- something in the order of 12" x 36".

So now I finally get to reveal my Eleuthera Pictures, Images and Photos gallery. In this batch, you'll find a couple of interesting pictures of Haynes Library. The architecture of this place is very Bahamas and quite magnificent. This is a must-see when visiting Governor's Harbour on Eleuthera. For more info, check out the panoramic picture and content for Haynes Library.

Other favorite pics include a series of photos from Lighthouse Beach. I've already talked too much about this beach. Just look at some more of these images and you'll understand why. What a beach! I don't know how many more years it's going to stay like this before the developers move in, but I don't expect many.

Double Bay beach was one of the more spectacular Eleuthera beaches on the Atlantic side -- particularly at the south end where there is a nice rock outcropping that juts out into the Atlantic.

Poponi Beach had a nice variety of extras to go with the usual composition of an Eleuthera beach. It's unbelievable how many Eleuthera beaches there are. I do everything I can to avoid the typical stock shot of an endless sand beach that butts up directly to a pure blue sky and turqoise water... Boring! Need something more, right? So I'm driven to trying to shoot that perfect Bahamas sunrise picture. High contrast is always the problem with that kind of photo. Too much sun or not enough. But I think I've cured that problem to a reasonable degree now. Take a look at my Sunrise on Eleuthera image and tell me what you think. Sure, it looks easy... But try taking something like that and see what happens.

Would you like a print of any of these pictures? Check out my Eleuthera Bahamas picture prints shop. Help support my better habits, right?

Hope you enjoyed the view. See you on Eleuthera.

Lighthouse Beach - Bannerman Town


This is one of the pictures of Lighthouse Beach on Eleuthera that is currently on my screen being groomed and noodled for Eleuthera-Map.com. Bannerman Light House is by far one of the better photo ops on Eleuthera. In fact, this was one of the best sunrises I have seen in the Bahamas, or the Caribbean for that matter. Don't hate me for saying this, but I've seen a large pallette of sunrises and sunsets in the Bahamas on quite a few of the Family islands dating back to the 70s. We'd live on a Bahamas island, but who wants to get stuck on one island when there's so many Bahama islands to see?

So check out the shot and tell me... What were the odds of my catching the sun just right against this spectacular cloud group?

My good friend Ralph and I hit Bannerman beach just as the sun was beginning to peek over the ocean. It was a classic "Oh My God!!" moment. And it's not easy to pay more attention to setting up the camera then it is to gape at a panoramic phenomena like this one. I'm sure you pity my dilemma.

Pat Metheny's "The Way Up" was the perfect soundtrack for this shoot. I usually dial up his better tunes on the Nano when I'm in OMG mode.

Thankfully, I had practiced enough 2-minute drills setting up the gear before I went on the trip. It's easy to screw up these kinds of shots if you don't do everything rather perfectly. It's not like you can yell to the sun "take two!"

The original of the panoramic image you see here can easily print to 12" x 36" consisting of 48 different exposures -- a guaranteed "wow" when properly framed. I'll be sure to include this as one of the choices in my Eleuthera picture gallery.

I promise it won't be as long until my next post as I definitely have more coming. Time to show folks some of the better landscape shots of Eleuthera. I have another unprocessed panoramic image / virtual reality photo of Lighthouse Beach and Bannerman Lighthouse that looks like it might blow away this one. If nothing else, I have some more single and triple exposure pictures of Bannerman that I'll be exhibiting shortly.

See you on the beach!
