Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist

This post is in response to the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is “minimalist“.

***

For this week’s Photo Challenge, I’m going back to my trip home last Christmas. My hometown is near Cairns, so we have the Great Barrier Reef almost at our doorstep. I went for a day cruise to Green Island and had the most amazing time snorkelling with fish and turtles in the clear blue waters. It’s such a beautiful part of the world!

The simplicity of the first photo really describes life in the tropics (and possibly all of Australia) – quiet and relaxed. The second is one of my favourites! I managed to capture this little guy seemingly looking straight at me. It was just me and him; the rest of the world didn’t matter. :-P

I’ll be going back to Australia again for Christmas in a few weeks – my second trip home in almost four years. I cannot wait!!

  1. 広い広いさんご礁(しょう)の水平線(すいへいせん)に ただ一隻(いっせき)の船が うかんでいるのが みえます。  
    そして 海中に アンジェルフィッシュのような かわいい魚が 一匹(いっぴき)
    カメラマンのほうに ちかずいてきているのが とても印象的です。
    この二枚の写真をくっつけると とても おもしろい絵に なりますね。
    この写真のタイトルを 「さんご礁での出会い」 としたら どうですか。

    • この2枚の写真によって水面上にはヨットが一隻あって、下には魚が一匹だけいますので、グレートバリアーリーフはちょっと寂しい場所に見えますよね!特に日本人の観光客はこの景色を見て驚くでしょうね。
      「珊瑚礁での出会い」というタイトルはいいですね(^O^)
