"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).

Photographer notes:
"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.
