„Rich Sky 2“

from the gallery of Simon Scott

The Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) is the area encircling the earth near the equator where winds originating in the northern and southern hemispheres come together. In the seamen's speech the zone is referred as the doldrums because of its erratic weather patterns with stagnant calms and violent thunderstorms. During my journey of 15 days, I witnessed no planes overhead or no other vessels, it was simply the remotest, quietest and the most powerful place I have ever experienced. Unadulterated nature reminds one that we are but part of a larger whole, one that must be respected and protected from those who seek to profiteer at any cost.
