Jewels in the South Pacific: A view of Fiji from the air.

The stunningly diverse landscape below me was hard to comprehend, a heady swirl of a million shades of blues and greens and browns, it was at times hard to tell where the horizon was, where the sea ended and where the sky began. The doors of the chopper were wide open, and the wind was lashing against my face. The sun was still quite low in the sky, casting shadows on the landscape, the perfectly blue sea offered up its treasure trove – a million sparkling diamonds on the surface. Clichéd, but truly this was Paradise.
