Picture of the day: A lonely maoi

This “little” maoi, (that is the name of the stone statues on the Easter Island) are standing resolute looking inwards his island, and the local folklore says it is protecting its inhabitants from the dangers that lays behind him in the vast Pacific ocean.

Picture of the day: The cemetary at Easter Island

Some shots I like more when I look at the afterwards, then at the moment when I took them. This is one of them. This is the cemetery at Easter Island, the beautiful island located in the middle of the pacific, and the island itself is the one place on earth that is  permanently populated , and furthest from any other populated places on the planet. This is a sunset shot, and I think it is something “eternal” about it.  If  I am not mistaken, what lies beneath the horizon is Australia.

Time to leave for Peru, a few moments from Easter Island. It have been an excellent visit.

I just wanted to share a couple of images before I continue on my journey.

First of a moai. This one is fully restored and “brought to life” 🙂

The colours of this tropical island is simply stunning

The sea is the most important part of the scene and culture here.

One of the islands many birds, a falcon lifting of.

And to end the stories for now form this magnificent island named Rapa Nui, I think it is fitting with a sunset or night image.

Take care
