Spirit of Andrew Harries Aerial Gallery
A collection of aerial photographs of Tobago
Aerial photography is by far the best way to get an idea of Tobago's beauty and to see how under-developed the island remains. In addition to these static aerial photos taken by yours truly form a helicopter, readers will no doubt find our interactive aerial maps of use.
Readers may remember the generous help given by Tobago and UK businesses for the "Holiday Of A Lifetime" that we helped to arrange for Andrew and Rachel Harries in 2004, just three months before Andy died of cancer. The helicopter was provided by a local firm (now defunct) and renamed "Spirit of Andrew Harries". The same machine was subsequently used to take these photographs. It is appropriate and fitting that this gallery carries the same name and is published as a tribute and memorial to a very brave man. Details of Andrew's tragic story are available here.

Readers may be interested in two fascinating satellite photographs of Tobago. This first was taken in 1990 and the second in 2000. It is fascinating to study both and see how little development has occurred during the decade between.
