Sunsets on St. Barth, 2003

The sun goes down over the Caribbean, and the night comes to life.

Sunsets have been done. We do them ourselves. On this trip, we used our tripod to make some photos which, we hope, show something of interest in the late evening and night on the island of St. Barth. These photos were taken during our trip in 2003.

Gustavia at dusk.

We were on the little island of St. Barth just after Christmas. For some reason, St. Barth is a very popular destination for New Year's Eve, and these are some of the yachts which were there. This photo was taken with a Pentax 67 on Fujichrome Provia (ISO 400), f/8 for six seconds at about 6:00 pm.

The harbor was completely filled, and there were many boats anchored outside the harbor proper just off Public. The hills at the back of the photo are on Sint Maarten.

Gustavia at night.

This photo was taken on the same roll of film at 9:30 pm, exposed at f/2.4 for 30 seconds. With the 105mm lens (considered normal on a 6x7 camera), the stars have just begun to trail, leaving streaks of about a millimeter on the transparency.

Toward Ile Chevereaux

This streak of light is one of those motor yachts sailing back to the harbor after spending the afternoon anchored off Anse des Flamands. It was taken from the balcony of our hotel, Le P'tit Morne. The several lights on the ship have merged into the streak because of the several second exposure. This photo is on 35mm film, Fujichrome Velvia (ISO 50, exposure not noted). One bright star is visible near the top of the photo, to the left of center (below and to the right of the copyright URL).
