Dawn, Duke of York Islands lagoon

PA287303 DOY Dawn.A

The color is often spectacular at both dawn and dusk but being in the tropics, it is brief, fading in minutes. Worth getting up for, though!  :)  Naturally, any scenic photo in the Duke of Yorks must include the sea and at least one of the ubiquitous "banana boats" -- moulded open boats up to 26 feet long usually fitted with a 40HP Yamaha outboard motor. These boats carry personal and commercial freight and people between the islands and from DOY to Kokopo -- a half hour run. PA287303
