“Wow,” is all I can say. From this angle, we can see the entire length of the island. It seems artificial, and certainly doesn’t look like any other part of Florida. I feel content with this paradise around me, and am completely “blissed out.” I hope the ferry never drops visitors off at this island.

Looking at the world from a reflected perspective can produce far superior images than one’s attempt at orchestrating it. Reflections can completely alter the image from something fairly straightforward to a more artistic, whimsical abstract. I especially like using water, as the liquid medium not only reflects but absorbs light in space, often with subject matter suspended in that potential energy.

This photo was taken in June 2010 off the coast of Koh Samui in the Ang Thong National Marine Park, which is a collection of 42 islands spread over 100 square kilometres. Most of the islands are close enough to each other to create a spectacular panorama. A day trip out to visit these islands is a great one day tour option from Koh Samui itself.
