Palms in Noumea, New Caledonia

Palm trees in the sun and before night fall, Anse Vata, Noumea. New Caledonia’s tropical climate makes for a perennial, if somewhat warm and often wet, spring on this South Pacific archepelago.

Twelve hours of daylight and twelve hours of night every day, all year round- no daylight savings here. Warm rains refreshing between brilliant sunshine, bracing but balmy winds. The deep embrace of the scented night.

Here, the sun and the rain are part of the same oceanscape, day and night in perfect balance.

Une metaphore pour la vie?
