"You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water" -Rabindranath Tagore
This image was taken during a recent sailing trip from Tahiti - New Zealand. Yep, that's what the middle of the Pacific Ocean looked like in the evening of November 1st; FLAT. It was against all expectations seeing such calm waters so far out. Very peaceful and quiet despite the droning hum of the engine keeping us on schedule. Unfortunately we experienced a couple "glass off" event's like this forcing us to motor much of the trip. I still can't fathom the scale of where I was. It felt like there should be land somewhere just over the horizon a few kilometers away.

Aside from the arctic, this is easily one of the most remote locations I've been. Really glad I got the opportunity!
I'm slowly getting through the images from my recent trip to the South Pacific, New Zealand, and Australia. This shot was taken with the Nikon D810 and the 14-24mm f2.8 courtesy of (https://www.borrowlenses.com/) More images at (http://tysonjerry.com)
