Another view of Helicoptor Island in the gorgeous Bacuit Archipelago, off El Nido, at the top of Palawan Island. The only way in is by boat, and fishermen at El Nido make a living from bringing in tourists to these idyllic deserted bays. Or at least they are deserted until the tourists arrive! This island had some monkeys in the trees but I was more interested in the beach.
When seen from out at sea the island's outline resembles a helicopter.

A beautiful picture. Interesting name of the island. Very nice colors (I feel a bit over saturated). Nice POV.
I like this.

The distance between the boats and the mountain is giving depth to the composition. The trees are framing well the beach. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tropical scenery. The late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Un point de vue privilégié sur cette belle plage et ces belles pirogues qui baignent sous une très belle lumière.Une très belle netteté d'image.

une photo impressionnante de relief, cette végétation rejette des verts très forts par opposition à un ciel dont les bleus sont tendres.
Un excellent POV du large vers les côtes.

Hi Chris - This looks like a fine place for a beach holiday. I like the fact that the beach is edged with natural vegetation, you have captured the lushness of it well. You POV is very good, did you take the shot from a boat? Attractive shot and an enticing location. Warm regards Rosemary

une superbe photo de cet endroit où il doit faire bon de passer un séjour d'évasion! la couleur de l'eau est magnifique, la végétation d'un vert foncé également et ces bateaux sur le rivage

Beautiful photo of an paradisiac island, fantastic green tones of trees and water separated by a line of the bright beach
eldancer1 (25618) 2012-03-22 9:42
I hope the fisherman waits for you for the return trip! Lol Having lived in the desert for a while I always forget how green the islands are. Nicely captured with good details and wonderful colors and saturation. Very well done, tfs.
patdeph (35748) 2012-03-22 10:31
this island is paradisiac, I love the vegetation, the mountain, and of course, this superb clear water.The colors are magnificent.
dta (63484) 2012-03-22 10:39
Hello Chris ,
A beautiful beach , for sure ! Like especially the colors ( they look natural , in my opinion ) ; the green of the lush vegetation , and the emerald water .
gildasjan (41082) 2012-03-22 12:50
De belles variations de verts dans cette image sous ce ciel bleu en douceur.Il est superbe le rendu de la couleur de l'eau au premier plan.

emka (73797) 2012-03-22 14:32
I do not see here a helicpter, but maybe I havr too small imagination. But what I see is the beautiful beach and amazing colour of water. And this strangely constructed boats. fantastic lush vegetation.
adores (34736) 2012-03-22 18:48
This looks like a really great place, with just a few tourists around and a couple of boats (at least at the moment you took the photo:)!The vegetation in background really catch my eye here and colours and sharpness are very good.
jusninasirun (17156) 2012-03-23 1:08
Interesting name for an island and the composition is fabulous. Lovely angle capturing the emerald water and colorful boats along a fine shoreline.
Thanks and kind regards.

Un paysage qui fait rêver, un ensemble admirable de la nature bien présenter par un bon POV, les reflets du ciel dans l'eau, une belle présentation
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4768) 2012-03-23 21:22
This is simply enticing. It's just funny how people thousand miles and hours away visit this place while me, living on this country hasn't set foot into this area. One day, I shall visit this place. That helicopter outline is really interesting! Excellent clarity and wonderful colors Great presentation!
siudzi (32649) 2012-03-24 6:47
What an awesome place for relaxing! Really love that tropical landscape post executed so well with a top quality. Bravo!
ourania (27174) 2012-03-24 12:14
the way you have composed and framed this view is wonderful, it offers us a great view of the nature and atmosphere of the island. I like the inclusion of sky, vegetation, beach and sea in the frame, they make a lovely composition and tell so much about the character of this place. The boats speak of its summer season aspect. I love the marvellous light, the way the sky is reflected on the sea and the clear view under the shade. The colours are fascinating. Well done and thank you!
All the best,
