This is as close as it gets to living directly by the sea!
This is a typical house on stilts, built by the Sea Bajau, who live in the area of the estern coast of Malaysian Borneo. Despite the rickety look, these houses turn out to be very resistant to wind and waves, so common during voilent thunderstorms that occur in that part of the world. They provide little shelter from the rain, but this is basically all those people can afford. Sea Bajau lifestyle, although extremely poor, is closely associated with the beautiful nature that surrounds them - a vosion of paradise for some.

Quite a peaceful place and a pleasant post card Michal
The light is excellent and the reflection of the house nicely breaks the monotony of the scene

A well brought quite view with the blue of the water almost seamless transiting into the blue of the sky. Good reflection and an interesting subject.

A good shot of the sea and stilted house that I have visited on the islands and really a place that stays forever in my mind.

Another pretty simple but very effective composition! The reflection is a true highlight in this picture too! Sharpness is excellent, exposure is correct and colors are natural and beautiful!
Very inviting scene!
