Talking Pictures
Hope

On a recent cruise of the French Polynesia in the South Pacific, I caught this chance image of a powerful thunderstorm enveloping the island of Moorea. The shaft of light evoked a feeling of hope, safety, and refuge in a turbulent world. Within a minute of taking this photo, the entire island was caught in a tropical downpour.
