British Virgin Islands

Tyra Banks Eat Your Heart Out


Completely unrelated to the topic of photography but relevant since I spent my entire day packing.  I’ve moved far too many times in the past few years, can’t really complain because it has allowed me to see a lot of really amazing places during that time.  However, it doesn’t change the fact that packing up all of your belongings and moving them to a new location is not a fun process.  The only upside is that it forces you to really think about all of your belongings and if you really need them or not.  I’m happy to say the garbage can is full of things that it was past time for me to get rid of and it feels good, but I still have way too much stuff.

The Baths

This amazing place is located on the island Virgin Gorda (which translates to fat virgin, for those not fluent in Spanish), part of the British Virgin Islands.  The Baths is a beach which is littered with massive boulders, which form natural grottoes, arches, and tunnels.  It is a truly spectacular sight, almost as if it is something out of this world.  The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover was shot at The Baths several years ago, not in the exact location of this photo as that location was overrun with people taking photos when we were there.

Unspoiled Beauty

Off The Beaten Path

There are plenty of great places to travel, unfortunately many of these locations are packed full of tourists who want to see the same amazing sights.  There’s nothing wrong with visiting these places, after all, you’re not likely to see something like the Colosseum or the pyramids of Egypt without other people being around.  But it’s the lesser known places, those that are amazingly beautiful yet a little off the beaten path that I especially enjoy.  Blue Hole, which I wrote about yesterday, is one great example, despite its amazing beauty we were the only visitors during the time we were there.  The beautiful beach below was likely busy later in the day, but when we arrived  there wasn’t another person to be seen.

Savannah Bay

This photo was taken on the island of Virgin Gorda, part of the British Virgin Islands.  We arrived on the island early one morning and headed straight to Savannah Bay.  The beach was completely empty, not another person to be seen.  As we walked down the beach nothing but unspoiled beauty appeared before our eyes.  The air was cool and the water was chilly at best but we couldn’t resist the opportunity to swim in such a beautiful location.
