I have the sunny landscapes in my collection too.
This is Mirissa.
Mirissa and its breathtaking sandy beach pretty much transforms your dreams and visions of a tropical paradise into an everyday reality.
Located close to the Southern tip of the Island of Sri Lanka and only about 200 km from the Equator, this secluded crescent shaped beach is the perfect place to sit back, relax and forget about all the hussle and bussle of your other life that’s a million miles away.

You're whetting my appetite for travel with this series of pictures from Sri Lanka. A fine capture of this beautiful tropical scene. Lovely light and colours; the red roof makes an excellent focal point. Not sure about the angle of the horizon:-)

beautiful beach and lovely nature!
Certainly a great place to relax.
I like your presentation and the way you framed the scene with so good balance between the beach and the Ocean.

I just viewed Jason's latest posted photo, its a photo about you and him walking the streets of Phoenix :)
as for this one, i'm sure everyone will agree that its a place we all want to be at right now.
warm temps, palm trees, warm breeze, warm water, sand...it has everything.
nice postcard type of shot.
Hope all is well with your nose :)

This tropical paradise clearly enjoys spectacular weather and brilliant colors. But in your haste to post to, I fear your did not level the sea. Nonetheless, the positive aspects far outweigh the negative.

sunny landscape work for me very much :-) especially in the winter :-) And it is lovely place with empty beach just inviting to have a nice picnic and a swim. The red roofed house adds pretty contrast for this idyllic spot and the palm trees help to create typical holiday atmosphere.
Very nicely composed and with great and natural colors.
Well done! TFS

Quelle belle plage prise sous un angle différent qui permet aussi de bien voir cette pointe de palmiers qui s'avance dans la mer. La lumières des tropiques est très chaude. Le toit rouge est un formidable point focal.

Excellent view to beautiful beach side. Nice arrangement palm trees and the house with red roof. Must be a superb relaxing, quiet place.
Very well done.

Hello Serghei - I loved the quiet beaches of southern Sri Lanka, undeveloped and natural and to me far nicer than a busy beach with beach chairs, parasols and motorized water sports! A lovely shot with swaying palms and gentle lapping waves punctuated by the orange roofed house. Warm regards Rosemary
PS Are you over your op?

I do like dark rooms! I go to the movies as often as I can ;-). I also like bright and colourful views of tropical beaches that almost make me feel the heat streaming through my computer screen. The red roof is a perfect inclusion and the palm trees also look very lovely. The colours are strong and vibrant in this ideal postcard.

Hello Serghei, I like this great photo of this beautiful view of tropical beach with palm trees in the background, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, light and beautiful color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

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

Just gorgeous! This does look like the perfect spot to escape from it all..an ideal and relaxing image that conjurs up thoughts of doing a lot of nothing...and loving every minute of it! :) I love the row of palms that span the little outcrop of land. Lovely tropical colors and abundant sunshine to top it off nicely. I can feel the breeze and slight mist just looking at this enviable location. As you know, there's not much water around these parts, so this is always a welcome sight for me. Enjoy the new day my friend. Rock on!

Belle prise de vue de cette plage et de la pointe avec ses palmiers. La couleur de l'eau est magnifique. Bon cadrage avec le palmier. Bien fait.
danos (83621) 2014-02-18 22:39
very nice this coastline view with the glance to lead-in on the hill with the palm trees.I like the beautiful and calmly area with the tranquility to be spread all over the area.
Excellent the light and the colour management of the image.
jemaflor (81388) 2014-02-18 23:16
Pleasant view a lovely place with the house close to the beach, good effect with all these palmtrees on, the left side and on the rocks.

Very beautiful postcard from that exotic place. I like the colors and the presentation. Well seen.
annjackman (18155) 2014-02-19 9:51
This is very picturesque with the sandy beach and the palm trees. The red roof makes a wonderful centre of interest.
A paradise very well photographed.
Kind Regards, Ann
PaulVDV (20711) 2014-02-19 10:24
That house has a wonderful location in the curve of the small bay with a beautiful beach.
I like the sight of the tall palm trees spread across the headland and nicely outlined against the sky.
Best regards, Paul

A lovely tropical postcard from Sri Lanka with clear blue water and skies and nice repetition of the coconut palms. Good sharpness and natural looking colour with excellent warm cold colour contrasts. Especially the red roofs at the back against the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

RhodieIke (11512) 2014-02-19 23:44
We can all dream when we see beautiful images like the above in Mirissa, stuck behind our PC and the rain and wind howling outside, so thanks for the bit of sunshine.
Wonderful colours, light and subject, well done.
Trust you are on the mend.
photoray (10519) 2014-02-20 15:19
The red roof house has an envious place on the Mirissa Beach overlooking tranquil blue waters and a palm tree covered hill backdrop.
Thanks for sharing,
fritzi007 (3101) 2014-02-23 4:28
dieses Land würde ich gerne auch besuchen, wirklich ein perfektes Foto!
Wünsch dir einen schönen Tag
worldcitizen (6521) 2014-02-23 11:38
Another lovely view from paradise. :-) I like the row of palm trees and the gentle waves washing ashore, but the red roof really jumps out and makes the scene come to life. Others have already mentioned the slight tilt to the left, but it's just a tiny distraction. :-) How are you feeling now? I hope you are healing quickly. :-)
Miguel82 (20972) 2014-04-07 19:24
Dobriyi vetcher Sergheï, that beach reminds me Varkala or Goa beaches, the same type of soil and coconut palm grove..perfect presentation, good light, spasiba, do svidaniya!
