Ofu Island Lagoon
The spectacular palette of warm blue water in this lagoon is like a magnet. It's intoxicating, and you will want to immerse yourself in it every waking moment of the day. But to capture the luminescent colors, you need to photograph it midday. The colors are muted during the magic hour, my favorite time to photograph. I wanted to share this beauty in something beyond a standard postcard view but found the task very difficult. Then I found this spectacular sidelight one late afternoon and it gave the scene the sense of drama I had been looking for.
