A sunset view from Uaguitupo Island, San Blas Archipelago, Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Coast.
In the 1995 there were not more than 3 lodges or guesthouses at San Blas, fortunally today there are not more than 10, 12 and the most part of the tourists didd cruise in the archipelago.
The Kuna people still well preserve their islands and sea.
The San Blas Islands of Panama is an archipelago of 365 (or 378) islands off the north coast of the Isthmus, east of the Panama Canal.
Home to the Kuna Indians that are the owners of all the islands.
Politically independent, the Kuna won their right to self-government in the Kuna Revolution of 1925, an historic event that San Bias celebrates every February with the local holiday of Mor Ginnid.
The Kuna have been resisting changes to their culture since the Spanish first arrived over 500 years ago. They have actually done a pretty good job of maintaining their way of life. The San Blas province has its own government, and each island is run by a chief. Tourism is limited to only a few of the islands, and you must get permission from the chief before visiting any of the islands. Electricity and running water are not found in the outer islands.
Kuna law prohibits fishing in their waters by boats with sophisticated machinery or the taking of anything from the sea that a diver can not reach with air from his own lungs.
Scuba diving is therefore not permitted, but tourists may snorkel in the reef, one of the oldest and best preserved in the world.

Amazing seascape. Wonderful colors. Beautiful lightness and shadows. Very good POV. Fantastic effect.

el efecto de la luz y los colores en esta toma es simplemente fantástico, muy atractivo a la vista ya en la miniatura.
Me gusta cómo has gestionado esta luz difícil, y el equilibrio cromático entre los tonos dorados de la izquierda y los azules de la derecha, con la silueta negra de la casa en el agua.
Los reflejos son magníficos.
Bello trabajo, y bien escaneado también.

De toute beauté, quel ciel, quelle couleur, cette maison en ombre chinoise, ces oiseuax qui volent dans un mangigique décor, de toute beauté.$
Bravo et amitiés

bella immagine ben composta con la silhouette della costruzione a contrastare il cielo e le sue sfumature mentre dall'altra parte i due gabbiani (?) volano verso il tramonto. Bello il riflesso dei colori sull'acqua che regala una atmosfera molto rilassata e piacevole.
Ciao e buona giornata

Bonjour, cher Paolo, un beau coucher de soleil que l'on a pris pour une aurore ...
La beauté est de ce coucher de soleil est vraiment parfaitement rendue à travers cette prise de vue.
Il existe des moments merveilleux offerts par la nature, encore faut-il savoir la saisir avec talent, ce qui est le cas.
hgupta (1323) 2008-02-01 1:37
Wonderful picture. Infact the netire composition is brilliant.
I loved the evening colors Two flying worlds in the left cornerand the line of logs near the centre are very very good. Sky is great too.
riclopes (35577) 2008-02-01 1:47
Olá Paolo, you know more lost paradise spots on earth than anyone else! Fantastic place to spend some time meditating and forget about our stressed lifes in the city. Nice silhouetted foreground and marvellous sunset colors. I like the 2 seagulls approaching...or going away... ;-)
kiwi_explorer (12209) 2008-02-01 1:53
Beautiful scene and wonderfully captured. Good use of the hut as your silhouette ... I like the way you balanced your lighting with details still visible. One minor thing I noticed though is that the horizon is a little tilted to the left. But overall you've composed this well with good resulting image quality. Your notes are very informative too. Well done! tfs and have a nice weekend.

Panama ??? Not a country featured very often, man you've been flying around quite a bit... however this could well be from your Bora-Bora honeymoon as well since it delivers exactly the same visual impression. It seels to me the horizon is leaning to the left.
Have a nice week end JY
joshy (314) 2008-02-01 2:25
Very impressive work. Amazing colours of the sunset. All objects are prominent like birds, the hut and clouds. Well framed. TFS

excellente lumière et belle ambiance dans cette photo. J'aime beaucoup la silhouette de la construction. Beau travail.
chpp (4281) 2008-02-01 12:11
very nice image, I like the balance of light and shodows. Very nice colours in the sky with a great composition.
The birds just add more to the image
Signal-Womb (13048) 2008-02-01 14:10
Hi Paolo, great capture again with this wonderful palette the sky has offered. I think there has been noise reduction which is a little heavy, often called the "neat image look" but this in itself can often enhance the mood. Composition sits very well here. Best regards steve.
jurek1951 (38942) 2008-02-02 1:27
simple and beautiful. very nice capture and lightness.Good composition and colors,

La belleza de esta imagen es impresionante, supongo que disfrutarías mucho ese momento.
Magnífico encuadre con unos colores preciosos.
axiotea (21649) 2008-02-02 2:49
Good to see this island is protected and well preserved!
I like the reflections, the color combination between the yellow and blue tonalities and the placement of the silhouetted hut.
tehanu_f (6896) 2008-02-02 7:10
This is beautiful, Paolo. You used backligthing successfully and your timing is great - the sunset colours are vibrant and appealing. Congrats.

wow what a color...and wonderful composition...what should I say more...well done....subir
pasternak (15165) 2008-02-02 8:34
You've been everywhere, Paolo!... the shot as I see it is too much saturated for my taste but the composition is excellent and the gulls, again, make it all...
leo61 (0) 2008-02-02 12:16
Good quality for this old scan and a great mixture between blue and orange.Composition is good too.

Ciao Paolo, io scatto i tramonti a San Nicolò e tu le albe in unisola dei caraibi, e poi dicono che al mondo c'è giustizia:)
Splendida la luce dorata che si diffonde sul mare, bella la grande silhouette della palafitta, gli uccelli in volo sono una piccola chicca su questa magnifica alba dai meravigliosi colori, buona domenica, ciao Silvio
ChrisJ (92116) 2008-02-03 0:45
A marvellous colour contrast, between the amber & the blue, in this superb sunset, with good graphism & silhouettes, of the structure at right. Tfs!
atus (15822) 2008-02-03 2:53
se ho capito bene, in passato ti sei fatto tutti i lodge isolati del mondo (:D. Bella immagine, ottimamente composta, dai forti colori e con gli immancabili uccelli marini in volo.
Ciao e buona domenica.
wolf38 (29666) 2008-02-03 7:09
Hello Paolo. I said it already once some time ago: The painter Emil Nolde would be pleased to see your photos. With your camera you create colored feats. Also the today's photo is impressing and beautiful. Best regards, Wolfgang.
Merline (0) 2008-02-03 9:05
magnificent reign...beautiful work. Very fine-tuned result in the colors, love those yellows and the silhouette of the house. The texture of the water is like an oil painting...and the clouds make for a lovely background. I think the horizon is leaning towards the left slightly:-)
devimeuxbe (58557) 2008-02-03 10:51
Colors are very nice. The composition is beautifull with the shade of the house. It's peacefull.

una visione da angolo di paradiso, quele effettivamente è. Colori stupendi ed ottimamente amalgamati. Ottimi particolari e definizione eccezionale. Bravo.

Que les couleurs sont belles !
danyy (0) 2008-02-04 13:53
Superbes couleurs Paolo,
incontestablement le point fort de cette photo.
Opposition entre les teintes chaudes à gauche et plus froides à droite.
Les reflets dorés sont interessants et les silhouettes se détachent bien sur ce ciel.
Muse (34936) 2008-02-05 2:48
Très jolies couleurs, superbe lumière du soleil couchant et un parfait cadrage. Une très belle compo très agréable à contempler.

Fantastica atmosfera, luce suadente e ottima composizione.
clio (27955) 2008-02-05 13:45
Il contrasto tra la parte blu e la parte gialla della fotografia è davvero fantastico!
Colori meravigliosi, mi piacciono anche questi due uccelli che partono.
Effettivamente una fotografia molto bella che io tengo in mio favorito.
Angshu (53663) 2008-02-05 19:50
I am amazed about the number paradise places you've visited...this from Panama! Beautiful tones of sunset with the different colours on either side of hut. The inclusion of the two gulls is a big plus. Excellent!
sacavem (18608) 2008-02-06 9:36
Very beautiful sunset, good composition that he is taken at the good time and the moment.

Hi Paolo. Nice shoot. Very nice colors on the sky and a really nice contrast between yellow sun and dark blue clouds. I like the composition with the house in the right side of the photo. Nice job.

A spectacular photo - the colours are striking and contrasting. The 2 birds are perfectly positioned above the clouds. Well done, Marlene
