I have tried to stay away from the usual beach/sunset type shots... but today I will make an exception.
It's been 6 months since my return from the tropics and I'm in the midst of my first winter in 3 years....
This was taken during the last days of the rainy season last year on Kho Samui. The island off to the distance (where the storm cumulous clouds hover) is Kho Phangan. Storms would come and go everyday and you could never tell what the next hour would bring.
Post-pro: levels, increased saturation, sharpening.

A lovely shot that reminds me again why I want to live in southern Thailand one day. Either there or Bali. Very nice!

It looks like paradise... I love these very low clouds.
Good to see your pic while it's cold and rainy here...

Great sky, alex, and a very nice composition of that paradise.

... and look what attention your exception is drawing, Alex. But quite rightly so - it's a textbook composition. I like that low horizon line with the fluffy white clouds above, and the hut below the palms in the foreground. A wonderful piece of escapism from winter.

The foundations of that house on the beach look far from safe! This is a lovely tourist shot. Yes, not so original, as you say yourself, but very much one of those pictures that make you want to head for the nearest airport.
richtersl (3546) 2003-12-27 17:57
Now you're teasing me because this is exactly the kind of place I would like to be. This is a wonderful composition!
didcreole (962) 2003-12-27 18:16
Very beautiful place, the clouds are very impressive.
Rupes (913) 2003-12-27 18:54
Nice composition and colors.
A good choice this "exception"!;)
SavioCastro (601) 2003-12-27 22:10
Bela composição, é mesmo um sonho .....
Você poderia tirar cores do mar fazendo a foto ficar mais irresistível do que já está.
Bela foto. Parabéns.

I never thought an image would have me whine for just one more trip to kho samui. This one has and especially for those great clouds.
manny (21833) 2003-12-28 13:21
GREAT shot! Good perspective, composition and the colours. I like the way you show too much sand yet it didn't distract the whole scenery. Very good take. (Be back tomorrow for the points)

A special jewel. Amazing composition and colours ...

i can die in this place :))))))))

The sky and could are the really grab for me here - lovely, deep colour. Can I suggest that you clone/crop out the offending bit of foliage in the top-middle of the frame? A minor annoyance.

This is wonderful, how I would love to be sitting there on the beach now. Excellent colours and good composition! Well taken
mikoyen (1180) 2004-09-27 18:46
Very nice place Alex, beautiful picture, beautiful sky, a dreaming place except for the bad temperature coming...

These towering cumulus are on the verge of becoming cumulonimbus storm clouds. Great cloud shot set against the deep blue sky.

What an amazing place, the towering cloud is so impressive...love the simmering light on the water that frame the boats. A marvelous shot.

Bonjour alex felipe,
très jolie photo , bravo.
pierrefonds (57509) 2006-03-02 11:01
This is a nice beach scenery, the colors are nice and good composition. It is giving a sensation of warm when winter with snow is still here on March 2.
