Arena Blanca

Forgive me if this reminds you of a motivational poster. This scene was, in fact, one of the most breathtaking I’ve had the pleasure to witness. I grabbed this shot at sunset from the idyllic beaches of Arena Blanca, Bioko Island, Equatorial Guinea. Such a vast expanse of unspoiled beauty exists in this place. While scientists are, even now, hard at work promoting conservation of biodiversity in the face of encroaching development on Bioko Island, examples of humans existing in harmony with the environment are plentiful.

If you’re interested in learning more about the Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program, check out their website. They’re a wonderful team of scientists with whom I’ve had the pleasure to study and work through Drexel University.

This is an entry in WordPress’ s Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is harmony, and it’s meant to showcase photos that depict harmonious scenes or evoke harmonious thoughts.
