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.

    Another great shot, such clear water.. this place looks incredible – I sure wish I could live there for a while. :)

    Thanks again Jason. Cocos is incredible! More so is that what you see is exactly as it is. I do very little post processing with my images other than white balance and slight levels & curves.
