The Tranquility of Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres, Mexico

Capturing the tranquility of Isla Mujeres’ Playa Norte

Isla Mujeres is a small island less than 5 miles long and about a half mile wide off the coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It is accessible via ferry boat from Cancun. The northern side of the island offers Playa Norte, a beautiful beach with clear, turquoise waters that run only a few feet deep far into the ocean. It is easy to spend a day lounging here on a rented beach chair or bed with drinks from the beach-side bars in hand. This photo was an attempt to capture the tranquility of walking far out into the shallow waters.

    A simple photograph telling a story, the beginning of an adventure. Leaving the tranquil beach, heading into the storm, getting rained on, maybe you are alone in an open rowboat, or a raft, stranded, maybe you are with a loved one, or a gang of SEALS into an action. The story is endless, and triggered by a simple picture. Nice contrast of green to the dark grey. The squall in the distance is a must.
