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.

    Absolutely stunning! Would look great in a frame hung up on a wall in a corporate office reminding them of what they are missing out on outside :) Great work!

  • Thanks Patrick. My friend has a 1.5mt canvas print hanging in her house. It looks more like a painting than a photo on the canvas. cheers – Karen <*(((><
