Fiji Island Getaway


Our trip to Fiji was totally amazing as far as our missionary activities were concerned. We had assignments and activities scheduled one after the other every day until the last 2 days. On the other hand, our trip to Fiji was totally frustrating for me as far as photography is concerned. We were driven everywhere we went and were always with other people so there was never time for me to stop to take photos, even though there were tons of photo ops.  This means that a good share of the 1430 photos I did take were either shot from a moving car, a moving plane or a moving boat!  This shot, obviously, is from a boat.  The one day we had for sightseeing was overcast and rainy.  For a brief few minutes the sun peeked through and I snapped a few.  This is a small resort island close to Nadi.

Nothing worse than not having time to take photos.

I feel with you. I hate wasted opportunities. Especially when your far away from home...

Karen, it's a wonderful shot! I love the lushness and the dynamic sky! It certainly looks to be a wonderful place!

I was on a boat this past Saturday. It is not that easy to take a good picture, while riding in a boat! You have a good picture!

The colors in the water and the sky are beautiful ... how frustrating it must have been not to be able to take more photos.

So glad you're back to shooting photos -- any kind, any day. Even from moving boats and cars they will be spectacular and appreciated.
