The reflections of a fallen coconut palm in a small pond during the doldrum season. This is a beautiful time of the year, when the winds are gentle and the lagoon is like glass. Cocos (Keeling) Islands

’BRINGING COCOS TO THE WORLD"

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.

  • Hi there, I live on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean. The islands are an external territory of Australia – our closest neighbour is Christmas Island which is about 900km to the north east. So,,, Cocos is pretty isolated, but absolutely beautiful.
