Beautiful atoll in the South Pacific through a 400mm lens. About 1200 miles south of Honolulu . In the ‘Line Islands’ along ‘Christmas Ridge’, either ‘Teraina’ or ‘Tabuaeran’?

It is a beauty..... I would like to be in that paradise... It is surrounded by a ocean so blue ... The mangroves provide habitat for wonderful marine species.
