Description 

 

This album captures the beauty and wonders of the ocean, inspired through experiences of swimming, sailing, surfing and diving in the ocean. 

  • Corals' Soul

Mesmerised by the exquisite colours, movements and patterns of coral, and their importance in supporting marine life.

  • Joys of Spring

Delightful changes happen in the ocean during the Spring season. Growing coral and seaweed, blooming plankton, wandering fish, and other species.

  • Lament for the Ocean - Part 1

Expression of deep sorrow for what the ocean is facing - climate change, pollution, overfishing, mining etc. continues to endanger vital marine ecosystems.

  • Lament for the Ocean - Part 2

Continued expression of deep sorrow for what the ocean is facing - climate change, pollution, overfishing, mining, etc. continue to endanger vital marine ecosystems.

  • Ocean Redemption

The ocean is dark, powerful, and mysterious. Storms happen, waves billow amongst each other, crashing and thrashing. The ocean can also be calm and peaceful, lined with delicate coral and filled with diverse aquatic species.

  • Red Sea

The feeling of inner peace in Egypt's Red Sea, filled with many natural treasures.

  • Intertidal

Where the ocean connects with the land between high and low tides. Filled with marine species well-adapted to the harshness of the environment.

  • Dance of Flying Fish

A surprise seeing fishes soar from the turquoise seas of Barbados into the air. Flying helps the fishes avoid predators in the ocean. A wondrous sight!

  • Inquisitive Octopus

A sweet and charming octopus swims close to the seabed, swirling its tentacles. It is inquisitive, wondering what is above.

  • Swimming Turtles

Precious turtles swim gently across in the calm, crystal-clear waters.
