The Ruins of the old Copper Mine

Behind-the-Scenes Video

When I shot this down in Virgin Gorda, I also made a behind-the-scenes video with Curtis that you may enjoy! 🙂

Daily Photo – The Ruins of the old Copper Mine

Here’s another view of the ruins at sunrise. I was down on the island for about two weeks, and it was very nice to have a guaranteed nice sunrise every morning! The skies were never dull… always clouds and drama. I don’t know if it is like that 365 mornings a year, but it definitely was in the middle of the summer!

    Remember this one ,nice shot. On google plus have just put an extension to a tripod that only cost me $5.00 and so i took a few snaps as to how. Just wanting to help those who cannot afford the goods.If you are tall like myself its the cheapest method I could come up with. Sturdy plastic piping could also be used,have fun. Its not about living it up with the Joneses its about getting the job done. Casper your friendly HOST.

    Hi Trey and All. Winter is coming to an end here on the East Coast in the US and everything is grey, brown and ugly. It feels like forever since I was out with my camera because there really isn’t anything work photographing, and I’m getting a bit of stir crazy. When everything is so dark and grey during this time of winter, what do you all do for inspiration keep your creative juices going? Especially those of you who loath winter like me.
