Whale Encounter

One of my favourite pictures from 2012 Hamilton Island Race Week, from a trip out on Andiamo with the Oatley’s on a perfectly glassy day.  Perfect. Stillness.

Vatican Angel

I loved this fresco in the Candelabra Gallery of the Vatican Museum.  It was painted by German artist Ludwig Seitz (1844-1908).  The colours in the gown are incredible, iridescent even.  The translation of the Latin phrase in the background is “With the grace of God and the effort of will we obtain the excellence of virtue”.
