A Far Away Land Up-close

We cruise along on boats on the ocean’s surface, and sit on beaches watching the ocean’s surf meet the land. One cannot help but marvel at the mystery the ocean holds. It’s colours and contours are constantly changing. It can be still and peaceful or loud and fierce. It covers more of the earth’s surface than land. It conceals billions of creatures interacting in ways that we will never fully understand. One cannot build on it. It remains a vast open space perfect for contemplation.

During my recent travels to Vietnam and Thailand, I was captivated by it and here is a small collection of the photos I took trying to capture it.

Time spent in nature is time spent realizing that you don’t know it all and that you never will.”
