Photographer's Note

The first and third photographs that I posted of Kiribati (‘Crowded beach’ and ‘Low tide on the atoll’) earlier this week showed how calm the sea is on the lagoon side of a coral atoll, but on the seaward side the ocean can be quite rough, as can be seen in this shot. However, I took this photograph for a different reason – and that was because of the almost monochromatic look to this sunset scene. Apart from sharpening, this is exactly as shot (no desaturation at all) – a big contrast to the usual deep blues and aquamarine tones that you see in my other photographs of Kiribati, and a departure from the usual deep orange sunsets that you associate with the tropics.
