Cruise Ships Docked In Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia, an Eastern Caribbean island nation with a pair of dramatically tapered mountains.  The Pitons, on its west coast.

Its coast is home to volcanic beaches, reef-diving sites, luxury resorts and fishing villages. Trails in the interior rainforest lead to waterfalls like the 15m-high Toraille, which pours over a cliff into a garden. The capital, Castries, is a popular cruise port.

Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.

Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.

Along the way he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.

Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.

What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.

Miami Florida Sunrise


Written by: GAry Wonning

Over the years , one of the most valuable lessons I have learned is to never pack my camera away  where I can’t get to it. You never know when they once in a lifetime photo opportunity will arise.

Miami Sunrise
As our ship docked in Miami after returning from a seven day fun filled cruise to the Caribbean, we were preparing to leave our cabin and have breakfast one last time in the dining room before departing the ship and driving home.

I decided to take one last look from our balcony, and boy, am I glad I did! The sun was just rising over the horizon to reveal a beautiful tropical sunrise over Miami Beach.  Breakfast would have to wait. I grabbed my trusty Nikon from it’s resting place in my camera bag and captured several shots before the sun rose completely above the horizon.

A lesson learned, always keep your camera handy . People say it is impossible to get good travel photos while on a cruise. This simply isn’t true. Just stay alert, plenty of opportunities will present themselves and you will return home with lots of memories and souvenirs.

Make Time for photography

Working a full time job, saving time for family and friends and trying to maintain a social life makes it extremely hard to save time for a passion like photography. Photography in itself can consume a lot of time and energy, especially if one is engaged in photographing scenics or wildlife photos.

When photographing any sort of nature photography, whether it be landscapes, scenics, or wildlife subjects there are many factors to consider, you can’t just schedule an appointment.  One must take into account many things such as lightning, the habits of the wildlife you want to photograph and the amount of time to get in position for your prize winning photo.

Juggling all of this with a life can be quite a challenge. Probably one of best ways to get started and be organized is to make a schedule of when you have time to pursue your hobby. Only by setting aside a certain time every week and sticking to it is the only way to not be distracted and lose your  focus.

Make time for photography

Another excellent way to get quality photos is to always carry a camera with you. You never know when that prize winning shot will spring up in front of you. Many times , with today’s technology, a cell phone or point and shoot camera is more than adequate to get you a high resolution photo suitable for whatever you would like to use it for.

Always be thinking of how you can take quality photos in the small amount of time you have. Just by staying focused, opportunities will present themselves  whereby one can get good photos will very little expenditure of time and effort.

These are just a few helpful hints to make your new hobby fun, enjoable, and maybe even a little profitable .
