This photo was taken in Wakatobi. Wakatobi is a small private island in Indonesia and the. whole island is a dive resort.

To vacation on the island you have to book a reservation a year in advance, but it's worth the wait. The island has beautiful sunsets, ocean and dive spots.

In order to get to Wakatobi you take a flight to Bali then a short flight to a private airport then you take a short boat ride to the island.

The top (left) photo I took we stayed in a private bungalow with a pool in it.As I was getting out of the pool I Realized the sunset was reflecting off the ocean and pool. I immediately grabbed my camera and took a photo.

The second photo I realized the sunset was getting more intense and snapped the photo of the orange sunset. I also decided on an unfocused photo because I thought that it made the photo more interesting and brought out the orange in the sunset.


This photo was taken underwater with a GoPro. We went on an afternoon dive and as we were going deeper in the water I looked up and noticed the sun shining in the depths of the water and snapped this photo.

You can see my sister and brother in the background and can also see a lot of different colors. It is one of my favorite photos I have taken.
