This is view from Fort Hill on Union Island, near to Tobago Cays. You see the airport on Union Island, next is mooring bay and next is private Palm Island famous for just married couple apartments - very expensive - 3 500 US Dollars / one night. In the back You see Petit St. Vincent.

Wonderful place and nice colours in your composition!
Good clarity and beautiful perspective!
danyy (0) 2007-03-21 19:23
avec ce fantastique POV on voit bien qu'il s'agit d'un aéroport, simple et rudimentaires certes, mais qui amène à une escal idyllique, celle d'une île aux couleurs fantastiques.
Merci pour le partage.
bantonbuju (51781) 2007-03-22 2:33
jak się patrzy na to zdjęcie to ten krajobraz wydaje sę nie z tej bajki...alez to przygoda, takie widoki, takie miejsce z kategorii rajskich...zafascynowany,

Des couleurs paradisiaques et un ciel très dynamique qui anime cette belle photo.
isabela_sor (47696) 2007-03-22 4:14
A good lesson about depth in a composition,using natural colors and a beautiful subject/place.The sky is really impressive here
All the best
ahmetgedikli (25482) 2007-03-22 4:19
Perfect quality and beautiful colors. I like the POV and composition.Thanks for sharing.
Ertan (2988) 2007-03-22 4:22
What a beautiful landscape!.I like this colors.Well done
jasmis (57824) 2007-03-22 5:30
Ja Cię już nie lubię. Popatrz za okno - jakieś resztki śniegu, zimno, wieje a Ty katujesz nas takimi widokami. Tego powinni zabronić. Wrrr.
Mimo wszystko - pozdrawiam.
John_F_Kennedy (42883) 2007-03-22 6:25
This sea emerald is of any beauty. Beautiful seascape captured with good perspective and great colours contrast.
delkoo (68) 2007-03-22 8:25
what a stunning light and beautiful sky furnished by impressive clouds,
your POV is WELL CHOSEN TOO.
ALIRIZA (16423) 2007-03-22 10:13
Excellent composition with splendid colours and cloudy sky. Well done my friend...
pboehringer (770) 2007-03-22 10:44
Elzbieta ... ! You found the ideal POV with the ideal light conditions and on top of that the ideal cloud formation. I never saw such a lovely airport before. I wish I could land there right now, but instead I have to get ready to go to work :-(
feather (51130) 2007-03-22 11:48
Very good wide angle shot where the cloud formation seems to provide an umbrella arching over the scene. I like the dappled light and all the tiny details.
plimrn (21344) 2007-03-22 12:48
The POV you selected gives a stunning overview of this beautiful area; but then you followed it up with perfect framing, focus and light management. I've seen a few of these broad vista shots, even tried a few myself; but none I've seen have suceeded as well as this one.
The perfect detail of the foreground foliage gives a real feeling of being there; I can almost feel the soft tropical breeze. The airstrip provides a patchwork of colors in the middle ground. The sea stars here with painting a canvas of greens and blues with white accents, while the reef, islands and anchored boats provide idyllic deatail. Anyone would have been nice, the three put this photo WAY over the top. The stunning explosion of clouds would ordinarily be the star of any photo but here they are trumped by your wonderous sea. To my favs,
Gerrit (48278) 2007-03-22 13:05
fantastic wide view and splendid sky.
Must have been a superbe trip.
Photo65Net (43120) 2007-03-22 14:50
A nice one, with amazing tones and great resulting atmosphere.
Your POV allows you to obtain a superb sky, and you composed nicely with it.
AiresSantos (56155) 2007-03-22 14:56
Amazing colours in this very beautiful compositio, dear Elzbieta !
Great POV, very good sharpnes, lovely clouds in the sky
TFS and greetings
I'll be back
chrisnet (21092) 2007-03-22 15:05
Waow! Superb! Beautiful sky and nice colors, the POV is fantastic, it's really a idyllic place! Thanks for sharing.
Silvio1953 (123603) 2007-03-22 15:08
Hi Elzbieta, wonderful composition with splendid colors and graet sky, very well done, ciao Silvio
Philippe (11836) 2007-03-22 15:38
Hi, Elzbieta. All this looks very green. The foreground shows luxuriant vegetation which, I think, would go down to the sea if there hadn't been the airport. The water in the mooring bay has a very special colour which is enhanced by the boats creating some contrast on it. The sky looks rather special. It's as if it was striped. A very pleasant landscape.
josepmarin (57823) 2007-03-22 16:15
Such a high POV offers us a grand sight with a lot of depth and brightness.
Such an opened angle works very well, and the photo contains many interesting elements visually, like the track of the airport, the wonderful beaches of turquoise water, the vegetation in foreground and the islands and an impressive sky in background, closing this excellent panoramic one.
Great work with the scanned one also, there is a high quality of image and beautiful colors here.
Gustaw (21670) 2007-03-22 16:21
A gdzie ty tam by³a¶?! Ale masakra. Ja te¿ chcê! Mogê ci nawet teczkê nosiæ. Piêkny widoczek niczym z jakiej¶ bajki. Istotnie raj!
john_c (24662) 2007-03-22 16:25
Well composed with a good proportion of sky to land here. I like the clarity of detail from this bird's eye view on the hill. The lighting is very fine and the depth is such that one can discern objects in the far distance, including the little atoll. Well captured.
sufi (9588) 2007-03-22 16:42
It's a wonderful point of view and perfect perspective, indeed... The tones of the green-turquoise, the light and the clairty are also perfect... The sky and the panorama are incredible...
pady (4800) 2007-03-22 16:43
A bit too expensive just for one night, so I enjoy the beautiful view, it's enough for me.
A very nice composition
gary91 (15348) 2007-03-22 17:58
I wish my plane could stop one day one this island... but I am afraid at this price, I cannot stay here for long which is a pity.
This landscape is marvelous and the usage of wide angle is perfect. Great details and wonderful colors.
Best regards, Christian
tcht (7565) 2007-03-22 18:27
that's a great POV from up there. and you shot this at the right moment when the 'heavens opened' with some good lights and shadows on the airfield. also superb depth and lovely green foreground.
maphoto (8082) 2007-03-22 23:52
very nice view, that would be paradise for me also.....an airport on an Island, well seen !
leo61 (0) 2007-03-23 1:43
Your POV is great for this good landscapeshot.Your image has a great depth and I like these cloudformations.The gree4n/turquoise tones are nice,too.
jafadabret (56501) 2007-03-23 3:48
Cette photo a un effet grand angle qui plaît beaucoup, même l'horizon est courbe. J'aime les belles couleurs de la terre et le bleu spécial des mers du Sud.
Graal (97861) 2007-03-23 4:56
juz Ci napisano to co chcialbym powiedziec. Super miejsce i krajobrazy. Mnie pozostaje tylko powzdychac i pomarzyc o takich podrozach. Fajny widok na ladowisko i wysepki w glebi. Podoba mi sie.
jemaflor (85510) 2007-03-23 7:09
great landscape and depth on your shot, interesting effect with the direction of these clouds in this sky, a lovely place of course !Tfs.
jrj (34841) 2007-03-23 12:18
This one you did really well Elzbieta (of course also with a little help from the nature itself).
Your pov is very good to present the grand nature of the place and the green variations is just superb for the setting in the slightly underexposed compo. The total comes out just great with the perfect clouded sky over it all..
Mikos (4326) 2007-03-23 12:47
Really impressive the view you show us here, the airport is on that little piece of land!
What I like the most is the diverse colours your picture shows off! And the extraordinary light you have gotten!
Have a great weekend!
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2007-03-23 18:48
Hehe, jak rozumiem wybierasz siê do tego hoteliku ;).
Odlotowe miejsce. Mogê tylko rzec och i ach ;). Wiêcej szkoda gadaæ...
riclopes (35577) 2007-03-24 5:29
Olá Elzbieta, very impressive view and a very interesting and diferent POV of the paradise. The cloudy sky is fantastic and giving great perspective and depth. These kind of small islands allways have to conquer land to the sea, to get enough space for the aeroports. Beautiful colors and lighting. Tfs,
Cricri (107306) 2007-03-24 6:45
Trés belle varité de vert, un excellent POV, un effet de lumiére magique sur le paysage, trés joli
ChrisJ (99304) 2007-03-24 7:15
It looks similar to the Brampton Island airstrip in the southern Whitsundays, another tropical tourist paradise, in North Queensland. Good color & sharpness. Tfs!
saylan-cb (12738) 2007-03-24 10:04
I like this shot.It is a very good photo.Perfect composition and a nice view.
PixelTerror (0) 2007-03-25 5:21
I like the pov to overlook the place and I see it can be reached by plane before taking one of the waiting boats to venture in this paradise, lucky you !
I did a WS for you,
Have a nice sunday, JY
jwmunro (286) 2007-03-25 10:48
Hello Elzbieta -
This is a very nice and clear image. The WA view has given the clouds an elongated look that enhances and gives the image a greater expanse. The exposure looks to be spot on with and appropriate DOF. The image is sharp as there is a lot of detail throughout. I do like the mixed lighting throughout the image and you have managed to control it very well. Well done!
Thank you for sharing
izler (8) 2007-03-25 11:34
you are presenting wonderful panoramic photo with impressive perspective.
i like composition, point of view, depth of field, lighting, colours, sharpness and details

gunbud (34066) 2007-03-25 22:42
Great use of the beautiful sky to frame this emerald paradise. Between the sky and the jungle you have achieved wonderful depth to this beauty.
siolaw (38284) 2007-03-26 0:56
Superb POV and memories stirring photo to me, as i know the owner of Palm Island, as I stayed a week there in 1978 (invited ;D) and i did some regattas on PSV island (petit st vincent... Great colors and good sharpness... a nice ,wide view.
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2007-03-26 1:09
Excellent POV with a superb sky! The depth is also good and the detail of the planes gives us a perfect scale about the place.
UnTrained (0) 2007-03-26 1:32
amazing light, like a sunny spot in darkness. The cloudy sky is giving this impression more, therefore I prefer your ones compared to the good workshop from Jean-Yves. The view is great which leads you to a wonderful composition, it is like looking over the world.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
salvator (19102) 2007-03-26 3:43
Wonderfull composition and pov with beautifull depth. Superb colors. both on the ground,and sea and beautifull clouds. I wish you a nice week, best regards. Salvator.
dokadak (11518) 2007-03-26 6:00
Its really paradise... Does it need pray much to go there or put some dolars in pocket and come? :)
I like landscope, capture, lights end nearly everything.. thannks for sharing

alainh (35583) 2007-03-26 13:00
i agree with you it seems paradise !
a fabulous destination and a great pleasure i suppose, to shot such a splendid place and cloudy sky.
a very good scan Elzbieta

Seems you have a fantastic gallery here! I really like this shot!Seems everything matches here, the pov, that great sky, the different tonalities of the water and a great light. Really well done!
zeca (19762) 2007-03-27 23:53
Beautiful view from above this wonderful islands! The colours are amazing! Nice to see the airport and that sailboats... hummmm... wish to sailaway!
WepWaWet (3796) 2007-03-28 7:21
A Magnificent scene. Very beautiful colors and composition. I like this shot.
emjleclercq (15780) 2007-03-28 16:35
A very wide horizon a beautifull sea color and a beautifull sky, cloudy but still full of light. The airport close to the sea is interesting, since it make a flat space, open to the sight, next to the shore and contributes to the large field of view. Excellent sharpness.
All the best,
banyanman (7789) 2007-03-29 3:14
Wow, a very impressive post, Elzbieta. The lovely cloudscape frames the landscape well which has all the colours that we associate with the Caribbean. The landscape looks a little bit over-saturated, but the sky doesn't, so maybe those colours are for real after all. Cheers . . . David
ribeiroantonio (22637) 2007-03-29 20:49
I would not mind at all to land on that runway and check in paradise! Your picture is simply superb and I do not need to anything else. Congratulations.
Angshu (55934) 2007-03-30 6:13
Very good wide angle shot where the cloud formation over the scene, shot at the moment when the c;louds parted to throw the light and shadow effect on the airfield. Astonishing depth and lovely green FG..also like the small details
doubay (2093) 2007-03-30 10:24
great shot of an amazing place. Great colours and lighting, very good POV.
capthaddock (28790) 2007-03-30 16:24
Amazing view Elu, just my type of photo, even the airport runway cannot spoil the view, perfect tropical sky, maybe slightly on the yellow side.
Stepan (27210) 2007-03-31 12:55
Wow ! That pov + that depth make the compo simply amazing. It's really impressive and simply beautiful. Perfect shot.
jmcl (14535) 2007-04-04 20:12
the sea of vibrant green and turquoise below is beautiful in texture and has great depth .. to that distant island ...
the clouds give such a dramatic feeling of motion .. the horizon of infinity ..
devimeuxbe (58557) 2007-04-05 3:35
This sky is wonderfull. Beautifull Clouds and the light on the airport is great.
anavazao (5592) 2007-04-05 15:54
Hi friend gret view,
I like the colours of the shot, the POV, light and composition! Take care Ana:)
Vato_Law (12720) 2007-04-08 6:06
A great point of view over Fort Hill and Union Island. The colours are warm and very nice creating this tropical atmosphere so characteristic of those stops. The lights on the ground, the lines made by what seems to be an airfield are also nice to watch.
The clouds like Xavier says adds a lot of depth to the photo and fill well the top part of the photo.
vbl (1421) 2007-04-09 13:45
nice photo, good pov and beautiful colors (with a wonderful sky)
a really excelent picture
bakes888 (18499) 2007-04-10 3:16

Gorgeous view over a part of the land and then the sea. I like to see the many green tones of the trees and fields. Also the blue of the water is great. The clouds are beautiful in the top half of the shot! Very good work!

Hi Elzbieta, this sims like a miniworld! Everything seems so tiny! Where were you standing? Very high I guess.
The colours are amazing and the 2 layers of clouds frame the image very nicely.
Kirini (143) 2011-01-06 10:19
Great light and POV, were you on a hill or something similar? You really caught the moment with those clouds, well done :)
