Tour Boat, Kenya Coast

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

On the 11th of July 2008 I was snorkeling off the coast of Kenya near the town of Malindi. After struggling to take photos of the marine life I came back up to rest for a moment on the surface and decided to take a photo of the tour boat. It was only when I uploaded the photo did I realize how peaceful it was with the yellow boat on the blue waves. Yet it also appears chaotic with the wave apparently about to break over the boat due to the perspective.
