"Demerara Dusk" (2008, July)
Photographer: William G. Vicars
Equipment: Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7.
Taken from the river deck of the Prairie International Hotel at Coverden, East Bank Demerara, in Guyana, South America (about 15 miles from Georgetown).
"My group had arrived at the river shortly after nightfall. The river was quite dark. I could only see blackness. Fortunately my Lumix saw a completely different scene. I steadied the camera on the wooden railing and dialed in an ISO of 1250. The shot resulted in some amazing blues and a wonderful memory."
The Demerara River is a river in eastern Guyana that rises in the central rainforests of the country and flows to the north for 346 kilometres until it reaches the Atlantic Ocean. A Dutch colony of the same name was once established along the river's banks. The colony founded a sugarcane industry that continues to thrive to this day (Wikipedia, 2008). Sugar from this industry is used to make the widely exported El Dorado Rum -- which in turn takes its name from the legends of the lost city of gold believed by many to be hidden in the rainforests of Guyana.
