Hooves Horseback riding trip

Horseback riding in the ocean-such an exhilarating experience! This was my favourite part of our trip!

We toured an old sugar cane plantation and learned all about the history of Jamaica from our 2 guides.

A nice leisurely walk with the horses through the jungle ending up on the beach for a thrilling gallop through the surf!

Well worth the trip to St Ann's Bay!

This is something you can see in very few places in the world. A tiny shack house with a view to die for!

A Cloud in the Shape of the Map of Jamaica!

Photo Contest Entry #6

It was by pure luck that I saw this "map of Jamaica" in a cloud formation at sunset on the beach at doctors cave, montego bay.

This was a once in a lifetime experience.

Unbelievable, and absolutely no touch up -just natural! Gives new meaning to the phrase -Jah-mek-yah !

I am a strictly amateur photagrapher who absolutely enjoys the many opportunities to capture the beauty that is Jamaica -the Island and its people !

this fulfills the biblical quotes extol him that ride upon the heavens (clouds) by the name "JAH"(GOD)MEK(create)YAH(the island paradise of GOD the virgin island that braught forth the man child who is to rule the world with a rod of iron as most Jamaicans dominates where ever they go we are the true Israelite that was scattered and carried beyond our borders(Caribbean or carry beyon)and he cometh with clouds and every eye shall see him Jamaica conquering the world jam rock (upon this rock i shall build my church words of christ the paracleatos, about the paradise of jamaica the rock of salvation for all nation to acknoweledge their wisdom as jamaica is the smallest island with more church per square mile than any other geographical location on the globe so to see jamaica in the cloud is no coinsidence it is prophecy fulfilling what was hidden will be revealed to babes and sucklings those who are seeking the truth great discovery to see the sighs in the cloud as CHRIST had prophesied you will see the son of man (Jamaicans)coming in the clouds with power and great might. its all written in nature and in the hearts and minds of men through visions,dreams and sithings .

The Doctor Bird

I saw this green iridescent flash went by me as I was taking photos of the flora at the Ritz Carlton in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Luckily he happened to stop by some flowers, long enough for me to snap this one.

Man and Boy at Fishing Beach

Duncans Bay or Jacob Taylor Beach

The photo shows a man and young boy on a fishing beach, walking together towards the water and suggests a bond that is not always evident in these times. It's a rustic, natural and very beautiful setting.

As a tour bus driver, I have taken quite a number of visitors there and they are always very impressed with the natural beauty of the water and nearby beach, the characters and ambience.

I have even had people say if they dont make it to Dunns River Falls they would still be as happy to stay at this place.

All too often, it takes visitors to our beautiful Island to truly appreciate its beauty!

You can also visit with the local wood carvers who are always polite, warm and smiling.

Mr. Goofy in the mountains

Mr. Goofy

When I was on a cruise, we hired a taxi driver to take us around parts of the island that you did not normally see and I came across a really interesting man in the mountains above Ocho Rios.

I spent along time with him and took many pictures of him for a school project (portraiture in natural light).

This special man (who called himself Goofy) reflects Jamaica's laid back calm lifestyle, and is a lasting reminder of the beautiful island.

Relaxed, beautiful, sunny, colorful, and a bit rustic - just like I remember the rest of Jamaica.

Taken with a Nikon FM3a camera, using Velvia slide film. Photo was not altered/post-processed in any way.

I feel this is the winning photo not only because of it's beauty but because of it's rarity and being at the right place at the right time to capture this phenomenon in Ocho Rios.

Rubber Band Guns

On a recent trip to Jamaica we stopped at a local roadside food shack were some of the local kids let me take a few pictures of them.

These two were very proud of of their rubber band guns that they had made from the scrap wood from their father's small wood shop next door.
