Photographer's Note

This photo is for all the northern hemisphere members here on TE, as the heart of January conjures up memories of long lost vacations.

Perhaps lingering memories of a trip to the Caribbean, or beautiful beaches in SE Asia, or if you're lucky enough, the South Pacific.

This photo was taken a few years ago when I was studying in Australia. With a week off and some winnings from good ol' Crown Casino in Melbourne, I went to Fiji with three friends for two weeks of beautiful beach life. We spent our time island hopping the Yasawa island groups which are northwest of Viti Levu (the main island).

While I have seen many a stunning beach, I still feel as if Fiji has had the most remarkable water I have seen (still hoping to get to the Maldives, Seychelles, and French Polynesia to compare...).

On Sawa-i-Lau there is a very fascinating network of caves which you can swim in, I took this just before entering the caves.

Just a simple photo of a gorgeous place, one which I can only dream of now. Needed a pick-me-up after shoveling snow today here in Canada for what seems like the hundredth time this winter.

Memories are a beautiful thing...


Since some people are wondering, the photo was taken with a Canon PowerShot S400, a clunky ol' point-n-shoot from the dawn of digital cameras. When 4.0 megapixels were off the charts. It has since died an unfortunate death and been replaced by much, much better cameras.
