The Jukong - Cocos (Keeling) Islands by 

A red sail jukong landing on shore. I loved the contrast of the red sail against the blues of the water and sky. Jukongs are the traditional sailing vessels of the Cocos Malay community, used to gather coconuts for copra. Long gone are those days and now they are used for celebrations.

I photographed this jukong at Direction Island, one of the island in the Cocos (Keeling) Islands southern atoll. Cocos is part of Australia and a little known holiday destination.

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.
