Galleon Reef


The Wreck of the Galleon Monja Azul
The Royal Spanish Trade Galleon Monja Azul has served as a navigational marker, reverent shrine and occasional target practice for almost a hundred years. Perched on a craggy sandbar like a sentinel, the image of a Catholic Nun watches over the narrow passage that provides a precarious channel to the Spanish discovered Las VĂ­rgenes, now under the protectorate of the royal Navy. When most protestant crews encounter the petrified sister for the first time and inquire for her name in English, a round of guilty snickers arise from the name "Blue Nun".

  1. I agree - Wow these images are indeed fantastic. Any chance you could tell me where you got those palm trees from?

    The info of the U.S. distributor is on the bag. I bought 17lbs of them. The packaged arrived as a rapidly disintegrating box with a Chinese shipping label.
