Otok Gubeša is a tiny island in the entrance to Uvala Gradina (Gradina Bay) on the island of Korčula in the Dalmatian archipelago, Croatia. We had intended to take the boat into Vela Luka where there is a marina, and we felt in need of a shower. But passing this beautiful little bay convinced us that to anchor here would be more peaceful and pleasant. We had a swim instead, and a couple of beers in a nice little "konoba" by the beach. Dalmatian cruising at its best.

Now this is the sort of scene which could just get me interested in sailing. Not the hard tack biscuits full of weevils, the sea sickness, the storms, the force ten gales, but to berth beside a beautiful secluded island like this, lie in the sun, contemplate the scenery and enjoy a beer. What could be better? It must be Heaven on Earth!
A beautiful photograph with gorgeous light and splendid colours and - look at that sky - it's magnificent! And the clarity of the water! A fine simple and appealing composition with perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

I love the colours and composition. A peaceful looking place.
I have just returned from New Caledonia and the water there, inside the barrier reef, was of a similar colour to that in your image.
Thanks for recent critique and the suggested Icelandic novel "The Blue fox". There is another novel set in Iceland: "Burial Rites" by a young Australian author Hannah Kent. They will now both be on my delayed reading to-do list.

This image shouts Croatia - the colour of the water and the little island are emblematic of the Dalmatian coast. What a way to spend a holiday, I'm so envious! :)

this is a very lovely seascape, the little island is very attractive in your composition due to its placement, textures and colours. I like very much the distinct character of each area in the frame, the lightness of the scenery, the refreshing and peaceful atmosphere. The sea looks fantastic and your note adds great reference. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
