Paradise Encapsulated

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Yaseera Moosa

I flew into Cairns at dawn, bracing myself for a spectacular underwater experience and I was moved by the sight before me. I have never been anywhere so beautiful in my life. The only thing more beautiful than the view from the sky, was the view from the sea. Mother Nature is the greatest artist of all.

Location: Cairns, Queensland, Australia.
