Monuments of Rage
The Buka Passage is a narrow, deep and very fast flowing tidal channel that separates Buka Island by around 200 meters from the main island of Bougainville. Our home island for the week, the small but scenic Sohano island (far left with the silhouetted trees) sits at the entrance of the Buka Passage and has a stunning view of the sunset over the channel (see Scenic Sohano). For several days, I tried to be home on the island by sunset to photograph it but was not very successful. Our adventures outside of Sohano were equally exciting and often kept us from getting home before sundown. But there’s something else out there in the horizon, among the small islands, that deeply intrigued me and and caused the shutterbug in me to feel an intense restlessness and desire to capture its photos.
Author’s Note: There are not many reports regarding the MV Rabaul Queen, the case against Rabaul Shipping, or the burning of its three vessels. Below are some related stories I found on the net. A Blessed and Happy Easter to those who are observing the Holy Week.
