Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, nineteen

10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.

3 May 2012.

It’s my first visit to both Nassau and The Bahamas where friends from Vancouver live and work. Despite the small size and its distance from the mainland, I could get used to the constant tropical weather and the absolute lack of urban pace. I’m at Junkanoo Beach, and the view across the water to Nassau Harbour Lighthouse includes many pleasure craft in the harbour, as well as a number of swimmers in the shallow waters. Looking at this ten years on, I still marvel over the different shades of blue in both sky and water.

I made the image above on 3 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/320-sec, f/8, ISO100, and 47mm focal length (75mm full-frame equivalent). My thanks to the W. family for making possible my visit to the Bahamas. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lZu.

Fotoeins Friday in La Serena: February summer sunset

I highlight the La Serena-Coquimbo area in north-central Chile, where I lived from 2006 to 2011 after many visits to the area between mid-1990s and the early aughts.

5 Mar – Playa de 4 Esquinas (Beach at the 4 Corners).
12 Mar – Cruz del tercer milenio (Cross of the Third Millennium).
19 Mar – Embalse Puclaro (Puclaro dam and reservoir).
26 Mar – Pisco Elqui.

The shallow J-shaped bay and the 10-km long narrow strip of sand facing the Pacific Ocean is very popular in summer with visitors streaming into town from Argentina, Brazil, and other parts of Chile, ballooning both people- and vehicle-numbers. Always worth spending is time on the beach on a calm sunny morning or on a windy cloudy afternoon. The image here is late-afternoon on a beautiful warm late-summer day in February with the sun setting over the Coquimbo peninsula across the bay.

I made the photo above on 22 February 2006 with a Canon PowerShot A510. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-jtG.

Fotoeins Friday in the Bahamas: snorkeling lesson

Deep from the archives:

Warm blue waters are an invitation: sit at the beach to nurse a drink, or like these people, a small-group of people learning how to snorkel. What is your kind of relaxation in tropical climes? These were some of my first images in the Bahamas at Nassau’s Junkanoo Beach. For those stuck in the dark grey cold doldrums of a (northern) winter, there’s always hope of rejuvenation at lower latitudes, or even, southern latitudes.

During my year-long RTW, I made the photo above on 3 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D/Rebel XSi and the following settings: 1/640-sec, f/8, ISO100, and 53mm focal length (85mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-isq.

Fotoeins Friday in the Bahamas: breezy beach drinks

Deep from the archives:

In the Bahamas, the bulk of the month-long stay is in Nassau on New Providence. Tonight we’ve headed over to adjacent Paradise Island where there’s a reserved table for sunset drinks at Dune at the Ocean Club. Formerly owned by The One and Only corporation, the property is now run by Four Seasons. The onshore ocean breeze brings in the intermittent crash of the surf, in contrast with constant chatter from inside the bar. The cold drinks and the setting sun provide additional relief from the humid tropical afternoon.

During my year-long RTW, I made the photo above on 13 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D/Rebel XSi and the following settings: 1/320-sec, f/14, ISO100, and 55mm focal length (88mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-isi.

Fotoeins Friday in the Bahamas: chat and chill

Deep from the archives:

As part of a month-long stay in the Bahamas, my friends and I are on a short flight from Nassau airport on New Providence Island to Exuma International Airport on Great Exuma Island. We’re headed to George Town, about 15 km northeast of Exuma airport. The following day we’re on a water taxi for the short 1.6 km trip across the water northeast to Stocking Island. It’s merely a day to do absolutely nothing, except soaking some sun, sit all slack on the beach, and occasionally, dip the head and feet into the water, where manta rays might occasionally float by to say hi. Hungry? There’s always Chat `N Chill whose owners have entertained visitors from around the world.

During my year-long RTW, I made the photo above on 27 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D/Rebel XSi and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/5.6, ISO100, and 44mm focal length (70mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ilp.
