Vanuatu was such a beautiful and interesting place, so many photographs and memories already, and we were only there just over a month ago. Here is a little selection of images taken around Turtle Bay, on the island of Espiritu Santo – Vanuatu. Incredible tidal movement, it seems like a barren and dramatic desert when the tide is out, but soon comes back in again covering the edges of the reef. I also have included a couple of photo’s from my little Lumix LX5 with a cheap plastic waterproof case, great for quick shots!
