Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

Pewetoll Island

Pewetoll Island just off the coast of Trinidad

Barely off the coast of Trinidad State Beach is Pewetoll Island. Actually, I'm not really sure this can be called an island, that's how close it is. I imagine Pewetoll must be a Native American Indian word or name, though the Internet is failing me, or my Googling skills are getting rusty. This is a 7 shot HDR that I initially thought wouldn't be of much use because of it being a generally bright day, but the HDRing brought out details in the deeper shadows that I hadn't expected to notice.

Funny thing about this shot, for me anyway, is that when taking the photos I wasn't even looking at the reflection in the water. So when I got to looking at these photos I had a nice surprise and it instantly improved the photo. Probably shouldn't have mentioned that part and just played it off like it was all part of the plan. Oh well, hope you enjoy it.
