The view of the Pitons form Ladera just does not get old – or boring. The play of light and shadow across the foliage-covered volcanic rock creates a constantly shiftng landscape. One of my favorite moments happens during the impending gloaming – those fleeting few moments as the sun starts to slip behind the peak. Some people call it a corona effect, others refer to it as flare. Seen through the boozy prism of cool vodka tonic, I call it the perfect end to the afternoon.
