Shot from the famous ‘bird man’ cliff tops of Rapa Nui (Easter Island) looking across nearly four thousand kilometers of open Pacific Ocean. This palette series piece brings the depth of deep ocean blues and the expanse of the world’s largest open water expanse together in a single image.
Much is written about atmospheric conditions of the Antipodes lending a unique blue hue to the light. Here, that blue, the separation of wind driven ripples, and a passing flock of birds complete a classical landscape view of New Zealand’s highest peak. (130mm f4.0 @1/1000sec)
