Many things can be said about this rock on this beach. It isn't very well known yet, but I'm confident that it will become the Mt Rainier, Ayers Rock, Colombia River Gorge, Deadvlei, Twelve Apostles...call it what you wish, of the Seychelles. It's one of those landscapes that are just so photogenic that you have to be photographically challenged to take a bad photo of it. The one difficult part is that if high tide doesn't coincide with sunset, then it is surrounded with footprints. Many people will probably recognize it from Michael Anderson's work and it was indeed his photos that inspired me to visit the Seychelles myself. I like to think that I'm not a comp-stomper, but it was just too good to not shoot with at least one sunset. I thought the least I could do is to credit the man.
