While in Boracay, my second home (literally :), Hey Jude (it's a supremely cool cafe) changed their poop catchers from white to pink. These are the wavy fabric tied between coconuts to protect the cafe habitues from droppings from the swallows (locally called "layang-layang") that flock to the coconut tree tops at dusk.

I stopped the hand clicked in spite of myself. Your photograph have very strong power Michael! Beautiful color contrast between magenta fabric and blue sky.
Your note is also interesting very much. Wonderful shot!

Second home; lucky you!
The pink adds an unexpected touch to a beach landscape. Well seen.

Superb colors, and a classic compo. I wish it was my second home (i'd settle for a 2 weeks visit). Well done and a good note

I really like the colours also but I find the chairs etc a bit distracting - I have loaded a cropped version to workshop.

the color is what makes the shot - both the ocean and the nets. nice.

Marvellous image. The shot is well delimited by the coconuts and the pink net. That changes us from traditional images of tropical beaches. Very original and beautiful bright colors. I love it.

Pink and blue together make a creative and charming composition. The lining up of trees and blue shifting to green tan to white sand all provide brillant details and colours. Goes to my favs.

"addict" is a right summary of what someone can feel about such a place ! the composition is great, it makes your picture much stronger than the beach postcard we often see.

Colours of paradise.
You made fantastic picture, bu would be better without the tent and molino.
