Bora Bora is an island in the Leeward group of the Society Islands of French Polynesia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean. The island, located about 230 km (140 miles) northwest of Papeete, is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. In the center of the island (as you can see in the photograph) are the remnants of an extinct volcano rising to two peaks, Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu, the highest point at 727 m (2,385 ft). The original name of the island in the Tahitian language might be better rendered as Pora Pora, meaning "First Born".

It's always a bit hard to believe such scenes have been taken in France, lucky you who has travelled that far !
Beautiful beachside scenery, the conditions look pre-stormy but you had sun coming in that lightened well the sand and the water and made them glow to transmit us all the south sea dream. Only thing I miss here is to see a bit more on the left, it cuts too fast, I think it was the perfect location to try out a panorama, i.e. a stitch of several overlapping images. Hope I was successful in giving you a good reason to return ;-)
Have a nice day,
