One-Year Ago (10-January-2016) — Pacific Ocean

Gone to See the World. Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage on the MV World Odyssey. Day 6: Crossing the Pacific Ocean.

Pair of Brown Boobies flying into a Sunburst. I guess they didn’t read Icarus. From the deck of the MV World Odyssey while crossing the Pacific Ocean. Later on I caught a sequence of images of a Brown Booby fishing, then going into a dive. At the end of the day we were fortunate to see a glimmer of a “Green Flash” as the sun fell into the sea.
