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.

    Thanks everyone for your comments. It was an awesome experience watching this gorgeous mammal breach. I promised my daughter many years ago I’d take her whale watching and finally I came through. Better late than never. This boy put on one heck of a show, breaching over 50 times!! I have so many images, I just didn’t know which one to post ~ this is one of my favs! I appreciate you looking and taking the time to comment.
    Cheers ~ Karen <*((((><
