Because of its beautiful beaches, Cat Island in the Bahamas has been on my short list of places to photograph. Getting there should be easy, right? After all, the island is barely 300 miles from Ft. Lauderdale. What should have been an easy two flight trip through Nassau turned out to be something entirely different. Once there; however, things definitely improved. We chose to stay at Sammy T’s Beach Resort, a perfect Bahama style resort on what has to be the most beautiful beach in the Bahamas. In spite of our very late arrival, Sammy T was there to greet us and set about preparing a perfectly grilled snapper dinner.
My goal was to photograph Cat Island’s beaches using only an ultra-wide angle lens, a polarizer filter, and of course, a tripod. As we set about our task, we soon realized that Cat Island was much more than we expected.
