Skywatch Friday: Gran Piton

Gran Piton, St. Lucia. September 13, 2001.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

We’ve had rain off and on during this week, and I didn’t get out to take pictures of the sky.  So I went to my archives and pulled out this photo.

Gran Piton is one of the iconic scenes on the island of St. Lucia.  This picture of the mountain against the cloudy Caribbean sky was taken from a catamaran off the coast.  We visited St. Lucia on our honeymoon cruise in 2001.

    Nice shot and how fun to be on a catamaran.
    Betsy says to tell you how wonderful you have been (not that you aren’t always) while she has been laid up with a wonky knee. What a nice guy!!!!!

    Looks like so many people are getting rain (including me). I love the photo as I’ve never been to the Caribbean. I didn’t realize they had mountains.

  13. Sey Says:

    that’s an incredible pictures. 3 great creations in one (sky, mountain and the water). You should be proud and feel blessed at the same time, you were able to witness that scene and capture it yourself

    Beautiful photo and one day we hope to see it in person!

  15. Judy Says:

    What an interesting mountain! Almost looks like a child drew it (or an adult with no experience of mountains, like me)! And I love the way it reflects in the water as a darker band!

  16. Mildred Says:
