Photographer's Note

A view in rain from Woodin Channel to Baie de Prony.

Baie de Prony is a very large enclosed waterway at the southern most end of the Grand Terre in New Caledonia. It is a mixture of small resorts, historical, but almost abandoned towns, deserted bays, rivers to be explored by dinghy and huge mining projects. The whole bay is deep with few dangers, has a number of excellent sheltered anchorages. All the anchorages and beaches in Baie de Prony are red mud or sand, a result of the intensely red laterite soils that surround the whole area and form the basis of the local mining industry.
