Since moving to Christmas Island in May we have been amazed by the beauty of the island. This is a sample of our experience through our photos.
This crazy hole in the sky is what some might call a sky punch, a fallstreak hole, or a punchole cloud. It is the effect of something called the Bergeron Process. It is a rare and very complicated process where a certain kind of large cloud forms. The hole itself is usually triggered by a plane flying through it, where the turbines heat up the area in the punchole and create this epic looking scene.

Fearless holidaymaker Mark Pierrot picked up a coconut crab and posed fora photo in the Christmas Island jungle. Weighing up to 9lbs and measuring 3ft in length, the alien-like crustacean is the largest land-living crab in the world.

Every year on Australia's Christmas Island, 50 million red crabs leave their forest burrows and migrate on mass down to the coast to spawn into the sea. Their eggs hatch on contact with the water and then drift with the ocean currents for about a month, slowly transforming from plankton-like critters with tails into tiny crabs. If it's a good year and the ocean currents happen to bring them back to the island in time, then those that are not eaten by whale sharks clamber ashore and begin their march into the jungle, smothering everything in their way in a spectacular red carpet.

On Dec 2015, four friends embarked on a week long fishing expedition to a tiny, barely inhabited atoll in the Pacific. Armed with spinning rods, GoPro cameras, liquor and a dash of recklessness, they tumbled headfirst into journey that would shape their lives forever. Was that dramatic enough?
