Fiji is the Sky

Fiji is all about the sky. First one must spend many hours in the sky to get there from nearly anywhere except Australia. Those flights yielded some wonderful sunsets in the clouds. Travel between the islands is by light aircraft so I captured landscapes from the sky. On the ground or the sea clouds form in a most beautiful way. I did some of the best scuba diving ever there, but I don’t shoot under water. The dive guides are seated facing the camera in the group of Fijians.

After a stop in Honolulu and changing planes in Guam, we landed in Fiji and were picked up at the airport in Nadi for a three hour drive to our hotel.  After a few days there we returned to Nadi and flew to the remote island of Taveuni for another week of diving.   To get home we had to reverse the process.  The tickets were a steal at $1,100.  I don’t think I could get there for twice the price today.

  11. gorgeous photos! I had a layover in Nadi once when I was on my way to work on the tuna boat. I would have loved to stay longer, but even the one night was relaxing.
