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 shot is fantastic, but personally I think you cropped it a bit too much. Like when someone wants to show you something beautiful but holds it too close to your face for you to enjoy. but i agree with everyone else! Beautiful

  • Hey there! Thanks for your comment. I actually haven’t cropped that much from the original image – the little guy was truly filled my lens set at 160mm – didn’t have time to change the focal length LOL
