Hibiscus Plus Water, Leleuvia Island – Fiji

The hibiscus flower from yesterday’s post ended up being photographed in the small crystal clear shore break in front of my burre. It took me many, many images to get close to what I was trying for but now I’ve studied them more I need to go back and try again 🙂 It might be a few years before I do but I’ve got a better idea of how it will work. Lots of the better shots below to show you what I was trying to get before the hibiscus flower became too damaged. This idea was sparked by a cover image Marie Kova created for the TEDX talks in Fiji this year and one of our group on the Fiji Road Trip – see previous posts.

The Sigatoka Sand Dunes NP is one of only a handful of national parks in Fiji and the first one created in 1987 to protect a unique natural and cultural heritage site. Shards of pottery from the Lapita people are being uncovered here, some of the oldest in the Pacific region at approx. 2600 years ago.

I couldn't resist this one - what most people think of in a tropical island holiday! Water, coconuts and a boat.
