In addition to the Greathouse discussed in my last post, the Estate Whim Plantation has many exhibits to help the visitor understand how the colonial sugar plantation operated and how the equipment was used.  Two of the major exhibits are the mule powered sugar press and the windmill, also used to grind down the sugar cane to extract as much of the liquid as possible.  Click here to learn more about life on a Caribbean Sugar Plantation.

  4. I love this series, Mark! Great details in the structures there. I always find it amazing to try and reflect on how people had to live all those years ago, and your post today certainly takes us on a journey back in time. Great work!

  6. Love the nice, sharp processing on these great compositions. That second image has a magical sky, Mark. That’s quite a cloud formation.
