Picture of the day: The island of Barbuda

This beach is on the island of Barbuda, that make up the second part of the Antigua and Barbuda in the Caribbean. I visited the island in 2013, and this image just take me back to that beautiful and secluded island.

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.

Picture of the day: Betty`s Hope

Betty`s Hope was a large-scale plantation on Antigua and Barbuda, and today is no longer in operation. The estate have today a heritage status, and some of the buildings on the former estate have been restored, amongst others, this sugar mill, that is quite the impressive site.
