The island of Zanzibar is full of beauty and freedom. The tiny, idyllic haven boasts faraway beaches, old romantic architecture, and tropical skies casting ever-changing shadows on the rich sea.
The ancient dhows are a common and breathtaking sight. They glide by, sails full of humid, strong wind, carrying people to their destinations. They are the revered vessels of fisherman and the vehicle for the carefree sea-goer. But mostly, in their old and earthy character, the dhow contains a mystical quality which sets them apart from other sail boats.
Here the dhow is being chased by a dark and ominous squall. The rich ocean and brooding sky makes a memorable backdrop for the hand crafted vessel.
