Flight updates


SJU and WINAIR or LIAT, Eagle pulled out and Winair took the same stupid time slot as dictated by AEagle, making no difference whatsoever at all. LIAT departs an hour or so later so you could do it if you wanted to, go though SJU, i'd rather swim.


Jet Blue or whomever to SXM and AirBVI  http://www.gobvi.com   - avoid SJU altogether and can be done in a day if those on the west coast of the US don't mind red eye flights, no code share with Jet Blue yet, so you have to book on their site,


Out of Canada, ANU or BGA  or SXM then LIAT (or air BVI) , give yourself at least 3 hours between flights in ANU or SXM, This will ensure your bags move across the tarmac either by themselves or carried in the former two.


Latest update http://www.citairways.com/  This was spoken about many years ago (2004/5) as a carrier for Ross U students, I'd met one of the owners and told them that Ross would be the tip of the iceberg. If people are traveling when Ross season starts/stops, then I forsee issues with people being bumped for students whining about no seats, but im an optimist.



In anycase, we remain one of the top 25 least visited places in the world, and of course the hardest to get to in the Caribbean. But once you're here, it's worth it....

you've some lovely work there and the opportunity to go out whenever you can from your back door. The camera you have is a very capable and good unit, don't keep thinking  "one day, DSLR", its not the way to progress. Learn how to you what you have to the best of your ability and read up on technique. I used an Olympus 5050 for 6 years and still do, less frequently now, as i keep a Sealife clipped to my BC. 

Once you get to know your equipment you'd be amazed at the results, looking at those images you've made an admirable start.

I use 360 iso, 250th shutter, mess with EV depending on time of day, and let the camera do the rest, but i'm shooting Sperm whales which lack the colour differences.( Ike, Sigma 10-20, D90)

Thanks for raising an interesting idea M. I'll give it a try one of these nights. It should be fun.
