Sugar Processing, Whim Plantation

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.

  2. Excellent images Mark. I too, like the second image especially with those clouds that serve as a background.

  3. Lovely images Mark. Love the tones and the cloud formation.

  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!

  5. Wonderful images. I love the crispness and detail.

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

    Nice work!

  7. Great shots. I really like the light – and the feeling of the pictures taken out of Don Quijote
