Tree at Nanny Cay and how lighting makes a difference

Its beautiful how you can photograph a scene at two different times of the day and get images that feel so different from each other. When photographing a scene we should pay attention to how the light makes the scene feel.
This tree can be found at Nanny Cay on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. For the full write up and story visit my blog at

    Looks like we got a shot at sunset during the “golden hour” and one in the late afternoon judging by the shadows? Lighting, composition and focus are the big three considerations I try to think about with every photo. The difference a few hours can make is very dramatic, as your post demonstrates nicely. I think the clouds really add a lot to these shots. Photographers should take advantage of cloud opportunities when they see them.
