Caribbean Sky

This image was shot on the top of the old fortress of San Juan on Puerto Rico. It definitely is a place to check out, not only if you're a fan of the old Monkey Island adventure games: Indeed, the entire place is perfectly quiet, putting you far far away from all sounds and noises made by modern civilisation. As a result you get a pretty good idea what the place probably was like a couple of centuries ago, with pirate or french ships crossing the horizon... But of course I mainly picked that image because of this terrific caribbean sky!

I was using a polarizer for this shot, but still the sky wasn't showing the right blue — reason enough for playing another 30 minutes with Gimp! Believe it or not: *NO* local contrast stuff this time!

Active tags will restrict the thumbnails on the bottom of this popup to images that have all of the currently active tags assigned. A tag that is assigned to the image currently visible is shown with a  blue background . Tags will be grayed out if none of the currently selected images have that tag assigned. Tags with a serif font designate an image gallery, i.e. images that are related to each other because they were e.g. taken during the same trip.
