Palm tree and sun 2  


Sometimes you hide from the sun, sometimes you seek it out

Description

I was on a photo shoot for a client and ducked into the shade of the palm tree to chimp the last few photos I had taken. I took another step back and the sun hit me, so I figured it was as good a time as any to grab something for stock.

Harrison Point Lighthouse, St. Lucy +  


Taken Jan 21, 2011 with a Nikon D700 and Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 lens

Both now sit abandoned, rusting and vandalized, like so many of our historic buildings.
