I’m an amateur photographer and I have been taking photographs for as long as I can remember. I used to pretend my viewfinder was a camera when I was 3.
So, there ya go…
I was fortunate enough to grow up on an island that inspired me to do what I do. It’s beauty has and always will be my inspiration for as long as there is salt water in my blood.

    Fantastic image and writing.

  • Thanks so much Esther!
    I wanted to include more detail but realizing this is a global community, I wanted to respect the families of those who perished on board Flight 111.

    The local fishing communities banded together to assist with the search, as well as opened their homes to the families who arrived shortly after. The story proves that great personal bonds are made in times of tragedy. These families still return to this area every year and stay with their new found friends.
    We are known for not just beauty :)

    Great shot, Riggzy! Horrible disaster there, though. Many of the locals who went out ended up with pretty severe PTSD.

  • Thanks Craig.
    Yes it isn’t something that will be forgotten for quite some time. My brother in law is a medic with the Forces and worked in salvage. He’s never seen any community/area come together like that. He says that’s what keeps him out of the dark place.
