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.

    My young granddaughter loves dolphins and I have no doubt she will love viewing this wonderful image….

  • Thanks Sharon. They are so special. We often have the chance to dive or snorkel with the residents of Cocos.

    Great timing Karen. It’s a wonderful sight, seeing these dolphins playing around.

  • Thank you John. It is special; even more so knowing they are free and not forced to perform.
