A couple of weeks ago, while going back through some of the photos from our Fiji trip earlier this year, I came across a folder of images that I had not previously seen. The photos were ones taken by both Julie and myself with our small land camera on Castaway Island. We normally use large format cameras for our underwater photography, but now we also keep a small Fujifilm FinePix F31fd with us as a pocket camera (for those times when we don’t want to look like a paparazzi.) Although it doesn’t have the same sensor quality as a digital SLR, it does take very nice pictures and at a fraction of the cost of my Nikon!
Just about every evening, during the Castaway Island cocktail hour, Julie and I would go to the Sundowner Bar to watch and photograph the brilliant South Pacific sunsets. It wasn’t until I looked at the photos on a large monitor that I realized how nice they actually turned out. Here are a couple sample photos from the sunset collection taken with our Fujifilm FinePix F31fd… Enjoy!
