Photographer's Note

The state is the unicorporated territory of Johnston's Atoll, not Kosrae of Micronesia

Johnston's Atoll. Whether it is a part of Micronesia or merely an unincorporated territory of the US is for you to debate. We were not allowed off the plane, but Continental Island hopper had to make a stop here as we hopped from Micronesia island to Micronesia island.

This picture was taken with a Canon Rebel G camera, Kodak ISO 400 film, and a 28-70 mm Sigma lens. I wish I had a polarizer because I think the water may have improved a little. It was a deep deep blue. Also the 4x6" print was scanned in. There is a lot of noise through this process (which I regret... the print looks much better).

This has always been one of my favorite pictures (and not just because it was one of my very first (at this point the first 1000 are considered very first to me :)
because the runway for the airport is pretty much the length of the island.

The island is approx 2.8 sq miles in size.
