Intimate View of the Bluff on Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands

Intimate View of the Bluff on Cayman Brac, Cayman Islands

As folks who have been following along here at the blog know I visited the island of Cayman Brac in February, which is found in the Caribbean Sea, among the Cayman Islands. Cayman Brac is located 90 miles northeast of Grand Cayman. It was on the 10th day of May in the year 1503 when Christopher Columbus discovered Cayman Brac, with its large, central, limestone bluff that rises steadily as it travels the length of the island, to reach a height of 140 feet above sea level at the eastern most tip of the island. The name ‘Brac’ comes from the Gaelic name for bluff.

In the previous blog post I featured the vistas as seen at Long Beach. After creating numerous sunrise photos at Long Beach I made my way closer to the bluff to create some intimate imagery of the bluff and the limestone rock that is strewn about. Since the bluff was still cast in shadow at this time of the morning I had the even lighting needed for this intimate view. I explored the base of the bluff to find a pleasing aray of scattered, limestone boulders to use as foreground elements that would lead up to the vertical face of the bluff. This was my most favorite intimate view created on this morning. I will share other bluff details in a future post soon 🙂
