National Treasure

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Lorraine Minns

A friend once told me that the colours of the water in my photos of Conception Island were unrealistic. Obviously, they had never visited this amazingly beautiful spot. The many shades of blue range from deep navy to the most brilliant turquoise and it is so pristine that you want to dip your cup into it and drink it. This sanctuary to nesting seabirds, turtles and a variety of marine life is truly a national treasure.

Location: Conception Island National Park, Bahamas
