Cabrera, Dominican Republic

The plantlife of Dudu Lake and the Blue Lagoon near Cabrera in the Dominican Republic; golden browns to shimmering blues; a study in selection, of personal, sparse beauty; her daughter Jagger intrigued by the deep freshwater in the limestone caves; it’s the cave you fear to enter which holds the treasure you seek; the Taíno named this island Quisqueya or mother of the earth.
