I’m one lucky lady who lives on a remote tropical island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Inspired by the surrounding beauty above and below, I took up photography as a hobby several years go. This has now turned out to be an all consuming passion, driven by the desire to promote the Cocos (Keeling) Islands the only way I know, through my eyes and lens.

    this is amazing ~ you really know how to frame up all the extraordinary beauty of this place…it would be enough to just have the day there, and all it’s full spectrum of colors of sea and sky and palms in the wind. And now you lift the lid and remind me of how full the sky can be there too ~ what a treat it is to see, Karen, thanks for sharing here xxx

  • Hiya Linda. you have hit it on the nail perfectly :) Thank you for such a lovely comment – I really appreciate it. I love sharing Cocos to the world – it truly is an extraordinary place.
