Parking, El Nido style. The only way to get these idyllic islands in the Bacuit Archipelago, is by this style of outrigger canoe / fishing boat. The waters are generally protected, so it's not usually rough. This is Helicoptor Island (at left) which does resemble the silhouette of a helicoptor from a distance. This is one of the few islands where I saw wild monkeys in the trees. But I didn't photograph them. Too busy photographing the beaches, swimming and snorkelling. A lovely way to spend early New Year's Eve.

The distance between the boats and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the boats and of the tropical scenery. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

Tu sembles avoir trouvé le point de vue idéal pour donner l'essence de cette plage.Faite de calme et de tranquillité, l'eau limpide est des plus invitante. L'arrière plan est magique.

Beautiful tropical beach setting. The lack of tourist give the landscape a lovely and quiet mood. I'm sure later in the day, this play would be filled with people. Beautiful landscape the boat adds some nice warm and cheerful color to the whole scene and give good depth.

Good evening Chris,
Transparet water and high mountains back-decor the beautiful bay.
The boats in juxtaposition added depth and vivid tones, contrast to the nature's in view. Fine beach to stretch upon.

Very well done, TFS.

I know this kind of the boats. It seems me Polynesian style, isn't it? Excellent background for this simple, very simple composition.
Greetings from Corfu!
