Kuta Beach in south Lombok. I would have liked to have spent more time here but only had a few hours. This is an uncrowded beach with several Indonesians in the mid distance, enjoying the beach on a hot summers' day. (35c & 85% humidity) 'Winter' is only 32c, & 50% humidity. There is a boat at right in the distance. Polarised.

Morning (evening) Chris, I've been (and still am) away. nice reminder of tropical summers here, to contrast with proper winter weather we're having here in Lithuania.

Paradise beach. Really a nice view . I know Kuta beach in Bali. There is an other one in Lombok ? I prefere this one !

What a beautiful and excelent beach in a fine point of capturing view. Beautiful deep blue sky, white sand and lovely color sea water. It's cold now in Portugal and that beach was a must now here.
Very good work so well done and composed. Congratulations and have a nice week.

Je comprends pourquoi beaucoup de touristes souhaitent venir sur ce genre de plage, la beauté y est grande !
Pour ma part, je regarde, j'admire et rêve devant mon écran !
Très belle image de 1994 (en plein mois de décembre !).

Pleasant a beach picture with people, lovely colours but certainly different, seawater exactly green, lovely sand to think a last summerdays, and the green vegetation against the steel blue sky, great composition.
Have a nice sunday,

Hi Chris, A beautiful view of the half moon bay with sandy beach and green bushes on the side. A nice shot to have the beautiful water and the blue sky contrast with the beach. The inclusion of the people on the beach made this picture more attractive.

This is a really nice photo of Kuta. I didn't have a very good impression of the day I spent there (only a month after you were). It was rather cloudy and had rained so much that the village was flooded. Stunning colours. I like the curve of the beach and the details of the clouds and boat.

I agree that this is a wonderful view. Great beach. Seeing this I would love to leave imediatly. But I don't agree with Paolo that Kuta Beach in Bali is hell.
Cormac (26545) 2005-12-18 16:05
The combination of the white sand that incredibly blue sky is very powerful. The curve of the beach is great too, leading the eye right around the photo. Well done!
alejandroguzman (4684) 2005-12-18 20:08
Superb colorful picture.
This beach probably is one of the most beautiful beaches that I've ever seen
singuanti (15250) 2005-12-18 21:10
Hey Chris. Wow that is blindingly bright sand! I almost feel like putting my sunglasses on for this critique! :) The contrast is almost off the charts. Excellent shot Chris!
oochappan (22043) 2005-12-18 22:57
What a sunny view of this beach, you can imagine the heat of the sun here, a deep blue sky as contrast.

In this one I like the curve of the sea along the beach. I like also colors. I can 't undersatd why the appear a little blur on my screen. Perhaps my dirty glasses...
Very good exposure.
AmiBe (6042) 2005-12-19 10:44
beautiful curve, a beach as I like them, very quiet...
When I see the colors, I just want to dive !
fabio_ts (13694) 2005-12-19 11:04

Xalkida (11740) 2005-12-19 17:14
Wonderful photo. The colors are vivid, especially the color of the sea. Excellent depth, symmetry and light. Nice work.
kclai (2267) 2005-12-19 23:51
Well balanced shot that provide such shines.
Yeah, the sun shine on the sand and gave the sea the warming feel.
chaity (1539) 2005-12-21 2:09
Hi Chris, I like the nice blue sky and the view point of the sea. It makes me feel like going for a swim.
svo555 (1028) 2005-12-21 14:22
Simple but excellent photo!
Great composition, with the vegetation surrounding the beach, and great colours.
capthaddock (28790) 2005-12-22 10:02
Hi Chris - wonderfully polarised sky, but the translucent water steals the show.
maphoto (8082) 2005-12-22 23:23
Great view Chris, beautiful blue sky and water, you chose a very nice point of view, I only wish I was there right now, well seen and Merry Christmas, thanks for your great contribution in 2005 !

A beautiful place to relax. Great colours of water and sky. Nothing to do just lying on the beach and swimming.
photovolos (931) 2006-01-23 6:49
Hi Chris.One beautiful collection with excellent
colours!!!Nise composition,good management in
pierrefonds (48661) 2009-07-28 4:46
The curve of the beach is an asset to the composition. The presence of the person on the beach has an effect of scale. The tropical vegetation is framing well the beach. The point of view leads our eyes toward the mountain which is giving depth to the composition. The good luminosity is enhancing the different tints of colors of the tropical scenery. have a nice day.
