p h o t o s : los roques corals

[ 02:10 wednesday 18 august – haggerston road ]

here’s one final album from the venezuela trip. sixteen photographs from an afternoon spent exploring a small bay on the north coast of gran roque. the prevailing swell breaks onto this side of the island. it is more rugged and inhospitable than the south. the bay’s sheltered by two guano-covered islets which create a calmer lagoon good for swimming. successive storms have piled up layers of coral, torn from the sea bed, until there is now a four foot high crescent surrounding the bay.
