Ghiglia Releases Dream Island to Photography Gallery

March 20, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I am pleased to announce a new release into my print gallery today.  DREAM ISLAND was captured during a boat trip I did to the Marshall Islands with Martin Daly and his amazing crew aboard The Windward. The Marshall Islands make up the largest atoll chain in the world. Having spent a great deal of time circumnavigating the globe in search of the world's best waves, Daly has deemed the Marshalls one of the last untouched pristine ocean experiences left in the world. With near unlimited underwater visibility, this remote part of the Western Pacific boasts brilliant live coral gardens and an abundance of thriving sea life, including a sanctuary for all sharks, protecting them by law. 

DREAM ISLAND was captured using a wide angle lens enclosed in a water housing fitted with a large lens port suitable for capturing a split image above and below the water. I love this image for many reasons. The main reason being that it's a testament to the fragile beauty in the world. What can take thousands, if not millions, of years for nature to perfect itself in a destined balance, can be rapidly destroyed if we are not responsible in the care we give it. This image is pretty close to what the world would look like without the influence of the human, a fleeting occurrence in the world we live in today.
