Today meterologic fall has started and weather forecast is not exactly nice for the next few days here in the Netherlands.
At Bantayan Island near Cebu temperatures usually are way above 25 Celcius and beaches nicely white without too many tourists. What about a cold green mango shake on the beach?
Therefor today a 'quiet' photo of this sunny tropical beach for all those who are dreaming of paradise.

A very nice shot of hollidays.
We could use the photo as a postcard.
I like very well, and, if you want, you can give me a ticket to.... :).

Hi Harko, very nice place and good photo! Only I see a problem with light around the palm tree and inside.

Beautiful tropical beach with boats and palms leaning over crystal clear water. Great light and colors. Very good details.
Greetings from Brasília

All the tropical dream in this image, nice lines pushing the perspective forward to be eventually blocked by the backtracking tree, wish I was there...
Have a nice day jY

The lonely tree is great to make a wonderful composition! The color of the sea is incredibly beautiful, as it must be in all this region! The sky is also wonderful! Good job! Well done!

It does indeed look like Paradise. Wonderful shot, well composed using the diagonal of the shoreline to lead the eye into the scene. The opposing diagonal of the leaning palm tree works so well too.

The pastel colors give a relaxing feeling. This view is a dream indeed.

Det var i sanning en parasis strand mer vylort än så här blir det nog inte
bra exponering och komposition.
Jag har en liknade bild som ja tog för snart 30 år sedan på Boracay då det fortfarande inte fannselström där

Sure is a paradise looking photo. Simple and minimalist composition with just one tropical coconut tree to anchor our vision and take us into the immense sea scape, beautiful turquoise green water and lovely blue sky and nice cloud. In such a strong light, you manage some soft texture and detail. Love the clear water, the tiny person adds a touch of liveliness and give us some sence of scale and perspective. Thanks

25C sounds great and the beach looks perfect! Wonderful tropical paradise. Well captured, excellent colours and clarity. Nicely balanced composition also. Thanks for sharing.
Have a good week, Paul.

Landscapes which always make dream for us European… Superb exotic landscape where the palm tree is well to position in the image giving a good depth. The natural colors are very pleasant in particular on the level of crystalline water. Thank you Harko.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,

c'est classique mais c'est bien fait et très agréable à regarder. Une belle sensation de (re)partir en vacances.

it remind me the splendid and paradisiac beach of Malaysia,where I went last year!The colors are wonderful and I like the lonely man under the coconut tree!Superb!

I also want a ticket for that airplane :)
Great colours and light in this very nice picture. What a refreshing and relaxing holiday in the beach.

I really had a hard time choosing among your latest photos; they all call to me. I finally settled on this image of tropical perfection: the clarity of colors, the angle of the tree, the line of tropical clouds, the boats on the beach and a single visitor to enjoy the paradise all framed with nice balance captured with excellent detail.
Wishing you health, love & joy (HLJ), Pat

The landscape of this beach is simple and very beautiful, looks like the paradise.
The almost desert atmosphere just is broken by the presence of a man who adds life to the scene, and gives us the scale of this beach and its immensity.
A beautiful, very clean and deep image, in a very attractive and elegant composition.
