Postcard from Eleuthera, the Bahamas

by Emily Zumchak / Apr 04, 2012 / 1 comments

This picture is from the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. The Bahamas is a collection of over 700 islands in the Atlantic Ocean south of Florida. Eleuthera is one of the largest islands in The Bahamas, and is 110 miles long.


It is a rural place, not a lot of people live there; it is more of a vacation place. It has beautiful pink sand beaches and is home of Preacher’s Cave and Glass Window Bridge.


This photo was taken at a rental cottage in the Current. It had small rocky beaches, lush plant-life, and beautiful sunsets. I took this one night, and tried my best to really capture the sunset and make it look as beautiful as it did in real life, which is often impossible with a camera, but this photo turned out really well!

It isn’t the same as being there in real life, but it looks exactly how I remember, and I am quite proud of this photo and a few others that I took that night. The Bahamas is a beautiful place, and it is a privilege to live there and go on vacation to the different islands.

    Emily - what a beautiful sunset photo! And you're right - it's hard to capture what you feel, in a place. I want to go!
