Nevis Sunset Wallpaper

Kathy & I just returned from a week in Nevis, a Caribbean island that along with St. Kitts is part of the West Indies.  This was our second visit there, after thoroughly enjoying a visit there last year.  It is a small, quiet and friendly island, with great people, a number of nice restaurants and plenty of scenic views.

This is photo is one of a number of blog-worthy photos that I will share as I get them processed.  In the meantime I wanted to get something posted to break my drought!

Wallpaper Two-Fer!

I was getting tired of my desktop wallpaper and decided it was time for something new.  But then I had two photos I really liked and couldn’t decide.  So guess what?  Two for the price of one! 🙂

Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back!

I needed something new and tropical for my desktop.  This is a photo taken on our recent visit to Nevis.  It’s processed a bit more aggressively than I usually do it, but I think the result is pretty representative of a beautiful location.

This was taken at sunset on the second tee of the Robert Trent Jones II golf course at the Four Seasons.  That’s a guy who designs golf courses, and a big name among golfers, for those who might not know!

Christmas 2015 Wallpaper

I was looking at my desktop the other day, and realized that I wanted something “Christmas-y” instead of the one I had been using.  I thought I had used this image before as a wallpaper, but as it turns out I never did.  So here you go!

Believe it or not, this photo was taken back in January 2010 in Belhaven, NC. I included it on my paper calendar for that year, and it was such a hit in town that the woman who owns the house and dock where this photo was taken bought calendars to give out to her friends!  As a Thank You I took her a print of this photo.  Hopefully she is enjoying that print.  And she gave me her permission to photograph from this dock whenever I’m in town, which I try to do whenever we are in Belhaven.  The tree isn’t there any more, but it’s a great place for sunrise at certain times of the year.  I think we’re due for a return visit!

Kathy & I want to wish all of our readers a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2016!

In For The Night – A New Wallpaper

My computer wallpaper was getting a little stale so I decided it was time for a change.  That, along with a little nudge from a co-worker (lookin’ at you, Carlin! 😉 )

I took this photograph on our recent visit to Nevis.  Kathy & I were walking on the beach one evening just before sunset, and I saw these four sailboats anchored offshore.  The clouds in the background vaguely suggest a coming storm, but there was some nice color in the sky and there didn’t appear to be much in the way of actual storms around.  The Rules of Photography might dictate that three boats would be more appealing, but the spacing of these four boats seemed just right to me.

The thought that went through my mind when I saw this scene was “All Tucked In,” but since there were people out and about on the decks I decided that wasn’t quite accurate.  I imagined that they had just finished up with a day of sailing and were ready to settle in for the evening, or perhaps come ashore and visit one of the nearby beach bars for dinner.

Kathy & I have done day trips on these catamarans and always felt that it would be fun to take an extended journey on one.  But we never seem to find a few more couples willing to share, so we haven’t been.  Any takers? 🙂

May 2015 Wallpaper

I said I was going to post wallpapers less regularly, and I passed on April.  But I was getting tired of that scene and wanted something springy.  Spring has sprung here in North Carolina, although the usual spring-almost-summer temperatures haven’t decided to stay yet.  We’re still in that “heat in the morning, AC in the afternoon” stage that usually ends in April.  That’s OK with me!

There isn’t a lot of lavender here in North Carolina.  This is a lavender field in Seafoam, Nova Scotia from a few years back.  I’ve been reliving 2013 lately and this seemed like a good candidate to occupy my desktop for a while.  I hope it goes well on yours, too if  you are so inclined.
