Beauty & antiquity, against all odds

As I promised before, I will not inundate you with negative images of a country that's already stolen my heart with its very special and intimate beauty. I wanted to share with you a small piece of our trip from Tripoli to the Palm Islands, so you can savor some of the unspoiled beauty that still dominates the area, despite man's footprint. The first shot is from the boat, as we sailed from Tripoli west to the marine reserve, and the second photo shows the beckoning beauty of the main island. Finally, two fishermen sit on the dock mending nets for tomorrow's catch. Many do the same elsewhere along the dock, in their boats, and on the shore.
