When you think about it, there are tons of “contrasts” to be found all around us – colours, light, textures, friends, couples, people’s personalities and their music/reading/movie preferences… I think that contrasts are fun to photograph and they tend to make interesting pictures. I also find that photographing contrasts when traveling can help keep vacation photos from being just your average generic holiday snaps. My contribution to this week’s challenge, contrasts, was taken in the Caribbean island of Dominica. It’s a fantastic island, especially if you love nature. This photograph was taken at Scott’s Head, located on the south part of the island. It’s a bit of a steep hike but the views are definitely worth it. From this vantage point, one can see the village of Scottshead and the narrow isthmus that connects the two hills together. What is especially cool about this area (the photograph below), is that on the left side of the isthmus lies the Caribbean Sea and on the right side of the isthmus lies the Atlantic Ocean. The Sea is calm and peaceful and the Ocean side has waves and generally is more rough. Seeing this contrast, highlighted by the setting sun, was simply beautiful.
