The Golden Hour

It’s been stormy for most of the past week; by Saba standards, that translates to gusty winds of 20-30 mph and cloudburst rains lasting 5-15 minutes swapping time with the sunshine through each day, all of it occurring within the temperate zone of 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. This morning, a calm, beautiful sunrise that made the colors explode on St. John’s where I live. Here’s a couple of my favorites. Be sure and click on the photos to get the full size and scope of them!

In this panoramic, morning sunbeams burst from the clouds over the islands of Statia, Nevis, and St. Kitts and illuminate the road winding down to St. John’s in front of my cottage.

The golden light of morning shines on St. John’s. Vineyard Cottage where I’m staying is visible on the far right of the photograph, with its prominent tree out front.

Another view of St. John’s, this one showing the 1200 foot drop off to the ocean below, and a good sense of the expansive views of the Caribbean that consume my field of vision.
