13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Island of Bonaire

After diving in the beautiful, crystal clear waters of Bonaire my family and I were enjoying the surrounding views of the secluded beach we were on. Not a soul in sight, but this single palm tree and the mountains of the island beyond us. This photo shows the essence of paradise in my mind.
