Queensland, Australia
There is nothing else like it in the world, out on a remote sand cay in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef. Being surrounded by turquoise water, I wanted the viewer to feel the same way I did. I loaded the Linhof with a roll of film, four shots, that was all I had. I walked out, up to my chest in the balmy water and set up looking back at the cay. The rising tide was lapping my camera as I fired off the four shots, one wry wave and I would’ve been screwed. The perspective felt so right as the Pacific Ocean swirled around me. You can feel it in the shot, the magic, tranquility, romance, it’s a special place. Love it.
