Enjoy the isolated tropical paradise and soak in deep blue of Sawu Sea
Shot was taken from Kezewea hamlet, Golewa district, a peaceful remote location in South Central Flores island, a place thicked with tropical rain forests and sparsely populated. The view overlooking the calm pristine turquoise blue water is so breathtaking fronted by a skyline view of Ebulobo volcano - to the left not in picture.
The panorama is a tantalizing window on this beautiful little-known corner of Indonesia.
The canoe was practically distinguishable splitting the dominant colour and awaiting to be shot...

a really beautiful place with the clouds above to make the scene even more effective.The falling light on the clouds reflect on the surface on the see.The existence of the tiny boat on the foregound makes the image so beautiful and unique.

Hello Abmdsudi ,
The lonely boat in the corner "makes" the composition . But , of course , the deep blue sea and the wonderful polarized cloudy formation are superb features of the view .

Un ciel magnifique, une belle luminosité, un cadrage maitrisé et un point d'accorche qui donne une photo superbement réussie.

As the photo was being scrolled down I wondered if there would be no boat, or no person, this time. But of course there is a well placed canoe with a small red dot in the lower part. The clouds still steal the show, including their magnificent reflections in the calm blue sea. You have an endless collection of beautiful photos from the archipelago of Indonesia.

This is such a charming composition with the lovely clouds and the tranquil blue water. Exquisite atmosphere captured with perfect framing and exposure. The boat with the lone man enhances the mood of solitude and of course acts as a great focal point. In one word... 'Exquisite'.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

A wonderful shot with great power transmission and relaxing peace, contemplating the sea as still as intense and blue, these sensational white clouds, much embellishing the sky, the light touch of greenery, this plant first plane, gives a nice effect to the composition.
Very good range of colors.
Good management of the brightness and sharpness.
Well done. I like it
Have a nice day.
All the best.

Absolutely beautiful, fantastic clouds over the deep blue sea, I am impressed with this cloud formation

On remarque en premier lieu les nuages superbement éclairées mais on admire l'ensemble de la photo de ce paysage marin indonésien.

Love this landscape post a lot! It was built based on a great idea of composition to get an elegant presentation of this charming view. Very well done as always with extremely beautiful intensive tones. TFS!
rogerl (1544) 2014-07-16 6:52
Abmdsudi, fantastic downward light on the clouds, looming over the scene; the canoe at lower left gives a great foreground to the whole image. Really lovely. Thanks.
dkmurphys (46964) 2014-07-16 7:54
...and what a blue! Great capture, I like the elements of this scene. Incredible reflection of the clouds. Well seen.

It's a picturesque place in Indonesia for sure. The water is so calm. It was a beautiful day indeed. Thanks for sharing.

Terrific cloud tsunami
Very good early morning lights ambiance
Waylim (25162) 2014-07-17 8:52
Once again whether it is portrait or landscape you handle both gendre beuatifully. Here the beautiful tranquil sea is nicely depict and those clouds are the cream on the cake, light and puffy with a touch of golden warm tone. The presence of the boat and person adds a little liveliness as well as the local flavor of the daily life.
Excellent POV and good quality shot as always. Thanks.
rbassin (16400) 2014-07-17 13:28
une magnifique composition en bleu, et cette bande de nuages créant mouvement et contraste.
ourania (27138) 2014-07-18 8:06
a lovely view, exalted by your minimal composition and apt light and colour management. I like very much the combination of layers and depth, the elegant way in which the one element succeeds the other. The texture and luminosity of the clouds are very delightful, the reflections are strongly defined and add interest and brightness to the still, blue seascape. The person in the canoe is tiny but attractive, suggesting an intriguing sense of scale. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
eldancer1 (25600) 2014-07-18 14:34
The clouds and the sea look beautiful and peaceful but we all know that it can change in a heartbeat! I like the placement of the boat, it provided scale without dominating the scene. Good lighting and nice catch of the reflections. Awesome colors. Well done, tfs.
All my airplane pictures were taken from the ground.
mcmtanyel (10891) 2014-07-18 23:06
This is a very pleasant seascape that relaxes the viewer. The cloud formations are magnificent.
COSTANTINO (51918) 2014-07-18 23:12

Kielia (22913) 2014-07-21 7:37
a very fascinating sight and an excellently composed impression of this well known bridge due to your outstanding skills. The light and the colors are fantastic. The canoe including the person in a red shirt is just the icing on the cake. And I read your note with great interest. My compliments!
nikkitta (13530) 2014-07-21 16:58
One of your incredible well composed and beautiful sea captures
Like and enjoy watching the impressive shades of deep blue and clouds helping in contrast with their reflections
Ads last, your signature the tiny boat and fisher in red
to add color and life
Very well seen , composed and done
mkamionka (29407) 2014-08-25 12:47
spectacular view indeed. So simple and yet so impressive. The boat indeed adds a nice touch -helping to sense the scale. Great colors so well saturated. I like also the lovely clouds they are hanging nicely over the sea far in the distance.
