Photographer's Note

We are in Dominica again, the Commonwealth of, remember. (Please see note accompanying 'Dominica Sunset' for an intro Here)

This time we visit a quite magical grotto called The Emerald Pool located near the centre of the island and reached by a 5 minute walk through a lush rain forest of trees and ferns.

Being deep in the rain forest and surrounded by lush greenery which is reflected in the water gives natural pool its name. It has been a popular location with advertising crews from around the world including an advert for a well known hair shampoo which was filmed here.

The pool is fed by a 12 metre (40 foot) waterfall and although relatively cold due to the sun being partially shaded by the rain forest canopy, it provides a very welcome chance to cool off in the most heavenly surroundings. It really leaves a big impression on you!
