Piton Mountains in St. Lucia

For our honeymoon we went to St. Lucia island. I wanted to spend all week exploring the island, she wanted to spend all week relaxing at the resort. So we came up with a compromise, we explore 1 1/2 days and relax 4 1/2 days. She definitely got the better end of that deal, I did enjoy the relaxing though. For the exploring days, I brought my Hasselblad 500cm with a few rolls of Kodak Portra 400.

When it was time to explore I hired a taxi to drive us all over the island stopping in random places to I could take photos of scenes I felt inspired by. The island was beautiful, full of color and lush green vegetation. The island’s buildings and homes were colorful. St. Lucia has little mountains and hills all over it that provide beautiful landscape views. One thing I found most interesting were the abandoned cars scatter around the island on the sides of roads with shrubs and vines growing over them. I found one ditch with 3 or 4 cars in it.
