I know you won’t believe me, but this is not photoshopped, I didn’t even have a filter on the camera! We were staying a few days in Broome enjoying the relative cosmopolitan atmosphere. Even though it was dry season – thunderclouds gathered on several afternoons – sometimes it rained, often it did not.
The colour of the sea was quite extra-ordinary, this was first place we discovered that the Indian Ocean is genuinely blue, the Pacific Ocean, in contrast is almost always green! I suspect that there is some difference in plankton which makes for the different colour. What I know for a fact, is that outrageously blue sea next to the burnt red of Australia’s “sun burnt country” – makes for great photos!
