Photographer's Note

Imagine a sundrenched tropical island all to yourself. The emerald waters lap gently over a sandy shore and the warm white sands glisten beneath your feet. Is this heaven on earth? Or maybe the wind is gusting ferociously, flicking sand into your eyes as you squint in the glare of the sun and run for cover before the sun bakes your skin raw…. Which is reality? Is this paradise or hell???!

This is the tiny island of Morpion though also sometimes referred to by the name of Petit St Richardson, perhaps a more palatable name for French-speaking visitors ;-) In this shot you can already see about half of the island, whose sands are sometimes washed away completely by the surrounding seas. The only signs of human presence are the sunshade, thoughtfully placed for any passing visitors, and some footsteps...
