Softkey Photolibrary ocean image

The following photographs were taken by Nils Stolpe and others. The image files are larger than any of the others on this site and will take a while to load. Along with the brief description and thumbnail we've included the file size, which should allow you to estimate how much time will be required.

Unless stated otherwise, please feel free to copy any of the photos and reuse them for any non-commercial purposes. We only ask that if you do so you credit the source.

Note: a lower resolution image will load first. If that is adequate for your needs or if you don't want to wait for the higher resolution image, stop the download at that point.

Thank you.
