Photography in the Bahamas

Photography in the Bahamas means color, lots of color and, of course, the people. The ocean wears a coat of many colors, ranging from the palest emerald green to the deepest indigo. The colors of the flowers – hibiscus, bougainvillea, goat’s foot, and spider lily – seem a little brighter than anywhere else. The sand varies just a little from the palest pink to the tint of fine champagne.

And then there’s the clothing. Bahamians love bright colors. Light colored dresses, shirts, and hats set against rich brown skin offer rare opportunities for great photography. Gaily painted cottages, bustling streets alive with color, roadside fish markets, vast mangrove swamps, tiny harbors crowded with sailboats, lighthouses, and thousands of scenic bays, inlets, and beaches offer even more vistas for shutterbugs. If that’s not enough, you can always dive into the underwater world where the colors are even brighter. Then, of course, there are the sunsets, like none anywhere else in the world.
