Today starts the second month of the resort’s photo contest via the Facebook’s “moments page.” Over the next three months a guest photo will be selected and posted to the page. The person whose photo is highlighted will receive a cool Windjammer t-shirt. But that’s not all, the winner will automatically be entered to win the grand prize; a five-night stay at the resort, a $500 resort credit and a photo shoot with renowned onsite photographer, Peter Rameau. Please visit our Facebook page to learn more about this exciting new promotion.

If you're a fan of our page just post a recent photo from your past trip that you think best personifies your visit. I expect to see a lot of photos from our ice cream eating contest or perhaps from the island’s own ‘carnival’ and/or from the recent guest vs. resort cricket match.

Here are a few photos tips to get you started:

1.Wear sunscreen, it’s critical.
2.Don’t shoot at noon. Sundown and sunrise are the perfect light for a sunny location.
3.Use a flash to highlight shadows, even in bright sun.
4.Landscapes are great to shoot midday.
5.Wildlife is another great subject for midday shoots, just adjust your shutter speed to 1/1000’s or 1/1500s to capture very quick movements.
6.Relax and have fun.
