Looking out onto the Atlantic from the western, smaller portion of the island of Hispaniola... The special thing about this fishing ground is that this is where Christopher Columbus first landed during his first voyage in 1492. Today, this sacred ground is home to many fish like Red Snapper, Squid, Tuna, and much more.
Fishermen had hot tar warmed over fire that they were using to repair leaks on the bottom of their boats. They would allow the tar to cool and then venture into the sea to test their worthiness.
To take this shot I walked between two massive hogs digging in the sand forging for food. As I knelt down between them, they quickly scattered.
It took quite some time to get to this spot. However, we left with fresh caught Red Snapper and Lobster. It made for a great meal later in the day.
