This is in the Hundred Islands National Park. Only 3 islands have been developed for visitors among the 123 islands, some of which are shown in the background. We stayed at Quezon Island, the biggest of the 3 developed islands. The waters here are crystal clear - very ideal for swimming or snorkeling activities.
We were surprised and glad there were very few people on the island during that day. Then we realized all the locals were at home, in their TVs, watching our country's boxing great, Manny Pacquaio, fight and knock-out Mexico's legendary Erik Morales in a major fight in Las Vegas.
We surely enjoyed our day!

Good composition. The water color where it changes its color from blue to green and then yellow is great. The image is well captured and have perfect contrast settings. The boat is looking beautiful.

Adventure is calling, all aboard ;-)
Nice and clear view, with such a boat it gets nearly polynesian, and its spash of color is very powerful, I like it.
Have a nice day,

Very attractive at the first sight. The colors are so vivid, and the contrast is perfect. A pic for dreaming in winter...

Hi Alford. With the richly saturated colors it almost appears you have a polarizer in use. If you did that sky wouldn't have been even better. Good sharpness too. tfs Alford.

More than 2000 pts. That's something. This is another one of your magnificent shots. All of them are good. We miss your posts at MyIslandsPhilippines. I hope you'll post your hundred islands series there.

I like the color of the boat and the two island behind, the big one looks like a big lizard want to grab the small island.
Good composition and creativity.

Hi Alford, Very clear and colourful composition of this boat in a great part of Philippines. The clear water has come out well. Good to see on TE. Murray.

Fine expressive colors, excellent proportion of a picture. Good work.

nice shot Alford.
Good composition and depth. I like the way the islands sit up slightly as if floating.
Also the white beach in the background looks very inviting.
See what you think of my British harbour shots.
