Photographer's Note

Tortola is the largest and most populated of the British Virgin Islands, a group of islands which form part of the archipelago of the Virgin Islands. Tortola is 12 miles long and 3 miles wide.

Tortola is a mountainous island which was formed by volcanic activity; its highest peak is Mount Sage at 1750 feet. Tortola lies near an earthquake fault, and minor earthquakes are common.

The population of Tortola is roughly 14,000. The principal settlement is Road Town, the capital of the British Virgin Islands.

This photo was taken on board our cruise ship as we were slowly leaving the island at sunset.
