Photographer's Note

I took that image close to Matira Point, looking west (of course!). The small island on the left of the sun is Maupiti.

"Ia Ora 'O Tahiti Nui" (Long Live Tahiti Nui)

TAHITIAN LYRICS

'Ua rahu te atua (i) to'u 'ai'a
Hono no'ano'a o te motu rau
Heihei i te pua ri'i au é
E firi nape morohi 'ore
'O ta'u ia e fa'ateniteni nei

Te Tuoro nei te reo here
O te hui'a
'A hi'i to aroha
'Ia ora o Tahiti Nui é

FRENCH TRANSLATION

Mon pays est né de Dieu
Collier d'îles multiples
Aux délicates senteurs
Reliées d'une tresse immortelle
Aujourd'hui je te loue
Voici que s'élève la voix de tes enfants
"Répands ton amour"
Pour que vive Tahiti Nui

---
ENGLISH TRANSLATION

God created my country
Garland of multiple islands
With such delicate fragrances
linked up as an everlasting braid
Today let me praise you
Listen to your children's voice
Crying out "Lavish your love"
So that Tahiti Nui can live.
