From out of the blue

The Republic of Palau consists of some 340 islands covering 180 square miles in the western Pacific Ocean


My wife and I spent two weeks in Palau, hiking, visiting monoliths and diving with manta rays and sharks. I took this shot on board a small Cessna plane above the Seventy Islands, a small island group in the Rock Islands archipelago. As they’re off limits to visitors, the Seventy Islands can only be seen from the air. We waited five days for clear skies, before flying up and seeing these unbelievable views of bright-blue waters dotted with wrecks, mushroomlike islands and famous diving sites. It was the high point of our amazing trip, and a summary of all the places we’d been. I still get goosebumps looking at this picture.
