My Scholarship Entry - Voyaging in the Pacific

The Dawn Arrival:

After more than a week of sailing day and night from Vanuatu the fleet of Te Mana o Te Moana arrives in the Solomon Islands. The fleet of 7 Vaka Moana reef their sails and await the dawn welcoming ceremony with thousands of locals gathered on the beach. Conch shells are blown and haka performed announcing the arrival.

This is beautiful. I have only just become aware of Mr Bosch's work and quite literally became a fan overnight. I really admire and respect his love for people, indigenous cultures, and an eye for capturing/invoking emotion..hes got my vote!
