The very best of Ian Coristine's 1000 Islands

Music composed and performed by Tony Dekker and Great Lake Swimmers. My last book of photography of the 1000 Islands had to be the very best, both in content and quality.

Thanks to Simon Fuller and Bytown Brigantine, this music video was filmed aboard the tall ship "Fair Jeanne" as she sailed through the Thousand Islands in September 2009.
