This is the Bohol Beach Club in Panglao Island, Bohol. This beach has a vast expanse of powdery white sand and shallow beach water. A very idyllic resort like a paradise where you would love to stay when you retire and do what Jim Gaffigan says, “a hammock is like a giant net for catching lazy people”....well, after years of hard work.

Une belle invitation aux vacances. Je choisis le hamac le plus près pour profiter de l'ombre et de la vue. La perspective donne de la profondeur à la composition.

Good quality for a scanned print. Or did you scan the original negative? It pays to do so if you have access to a neg/slide scanner, as the 1st generation output from the camera is always better (sharper, less chance of dust and scratches) than any copy. But this is fine. And you're right: now I've retired, this is the sort of place I'd love to spend some time. Instead I go sailing...

One hammock for you & one for me - sunnies, good book & some nice cold drinks!!!
What a fabulous place to wind down & enjoy the peaceful serene surroundings...
Love the play of light in your photo - casting the shadow of the palm trees.

Ho dear Mics
Ahh this has such a great feeling of tranquillity. I could easily picture myself in one of these hammocks with a good book and sipping a cocktail. I like the play of light and shadow, the colours and sharpness are excellent, particularly considering this is a 10 year old scan.
