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.

    wow Karen. This is a fantastic capture. As a surfer, this is the image of my nightmares lol. It’s a fantastic image, as are all of your works, congrats

  • Thanks Maxwell. Sharks really aren’t a problem diving. I’m not so sure flapping around on the surface looking like a seal or turtle in distress… hence I don’t surf or snorkel LOL :)
