Photo Contest Entry #02 - Dusk Near Bull Head Mountain - Clarendon


I took this photo at dusk in June, 2011. I’ve been visiting Jamaica for many years after building a home in north central Jamaica, in Duncans, Trelawny. This image of the mountains and bamboo forest remains one of my favorites.

The actual location of the photo is between James Hill and Kellits in northern Clarendon.

The Bull Head mountain range is one of the highest in Jamaica and also represents the heart of the Island. It was my first visit to James Hill and I was with my boyfriend who is Jamaican and knows the secret places.

I’m a photographer and the light was so fantastic as the sun was setting I could barely breath with the excitement of such a scene. I’m always nervous it’s going to disappear faster than I can get ready to shoot.

I was using a “professional” digital camera but it was not good in “low light” which was fast approaching. I am very lucky to have captured the magnificence of this natural and pristine place.

Now the cameras have evolved and improved and even my iPhone would make a superior image at this time of day. You can’t take a bad image when the light is right.

But at the time I had to make sure I had the right lens and get the exposure set…lots of variables which have now become simplified. So again I say...I was blessed to get this shot.

When I’m in Jamaica appreciating the mountains and the rugged terrain. I image the Maroons and the early heroes such as Nanny and Cudjoe and wonder how they could have made their way through the wilderness maybe in barefeet or with great difficulty.

I know it's cold and rainy sometimes in those mountains so it is with great respect I think about the ancestors of Jamaica and their fight for freedom.
