Picture of the day: The devils bridge in Antigua

Todays image is of the “Devils bridge” on the east coast of Antigua. The bridge is a rock arch that stretches over very rough waters, and when I shot the image this was as close as I was allowed to get due to the weather and wind. The reason for the name has to do with Antigua`s slave past, and that slaves from neighboring estates use to go there and throw themselves overboard. Hence the notion of the devil living there. Even for the grim history of not so distant past, the natural phenomena is quite spectacular.
