Tucker's Point

This weeks photographic adventures included traveling to Tucker's Point Hotel to take images of the MP Dale Butler making his island famous fish cakes. The resort included a golf course, private beach, swimming pool and water sport facilities.

A fish cake dance by a politician made my day and more than compensated for partly overcast skies!

Cooper's Island - Ruins II

Cooper's Island - Ruins I

There was 54 years of US Military presence in Bermuda. Before leaving in 1995, they had occupied more than 10 percent of the 21 square mile area.

The bases were built from scratch in 1941-2 and financed solely by taxpayers in the States. Bermuda held a very strategic position in WW II.

The remaining ruins are an interesting contrast to the backdrop of turquoise waters and stretches of pink, sandy beaches. The interiors hold intriguing textures, atmospheres and an eerie sense of history.

Cooper's Island

This 77 acre island is part of a chain that makes up Bermuda. Located in St. George's parish... it is now joined to St. David's island thanks to reclamation work.

United States Government agencies relinquished the island in 1995. Before this date the island was occupied by and property of US Army, US Air Force and US Navy which also included a NASA space tracking system.

The entire world population of Endangered Bermuda Petrel or Cahow birds nests within 1km of Cooper's Island.

Work has began for the island to be converted into a nature reserve. Here are a few shots from the area

Coming soon: A conceptual documentary look into the remaining buildings/island before they are gone forever.

Looking Back - My Bermuda II

Looking Back - My Bermuda 1

I remember when I was younger and thought that the year 2000 seemed a million miles away and such a number would be so bizarre to write down as an actual date.

2010 is now upon us so before the next decade goes as quick as that last flash of ten years I would like to look back and share a few images that flew under the radar of my biggest sellers.

There is something very special about the 22 square mile island of Bermuda....

Exposing townlights

2010 is here so all the best to everyone for the upcoming year.

I wanted to experiment with a few long exposures in Hamilton before the decorations come down. Some of these images will be making an appearance in the magazine shortly. Enjoy
