U-Bay

U-Bay

this perfect little horseshoe shaped bay had a perfect left and perfect right breaking at the tip of either point.

the prevailing breeze was straight offshore creating beautifully shaped waves as they peeled over the shallow reef.

even in the middle of the ocean hundreds of miles from the nearest land, the ocean has moments of pure calm and serenity.

Golden Light

Golden Light

golden light filters through the tropical air on a calm and windless afternoon.

the expanse of the ocean is so grand, the only thing to lend perspective is a large albatross on the right side of the frame gliding over the smooth ocean surface to give an idea of how large this wide angle view actually is.
