i had the great pleasure recently to visit the caribbean island of anguilla, for my brother's wedding.
anguilla is a stunningly beautiful island which is thirteen miles long, and at its widest point is only three miles wide. it has a population of less than 15,000 people.
with its relatively small population and its thirty-three beaches, it is a dream for making photographs as the beaches are nearly always deserted.
this picture was taken on the beach at rendevous bay, looking out to the neighbouring island of st. maarten.

Such an inviting scene, the jade green water, the soft looking sand and the artists sky, a real vision of a paradise island. Reading your description makes it sound even more beautiful, nothing nicer than a place like this all to your self! I like the way the rising sun has lit those clouds from one side too.

Nice capture, principally with the sweat colours and the movement of water due to long exposure.
Good job !

This is so beautiful landscape post! The long exposure was perfectly executed to capture the move so well and to build a charming visual effect. Very well done! TFS!
Have a nice weekend!

this is the picture I would love to hang in my bedroom. Very subtle and elegant composition goes lovely with the pastel colors. And indeed it is view to start the day with. I like the way you used long exposure to make the water look smoother yet the rock sticking out of the waves is perfectly sharp.
Very pretty and enjoyable image, thanks for sharing!

what a beautiful natural scenery, a superb image full of energy and optimism. I like very much the way you considered the different layers of natural elements and the space they'd occupy in the frame. Each layer has its distinct texture, chromatic palette and dynamism while the composition is solidified very elegantly by the distant landscape and the rock. The light has a magical quality and the movement of the sea is mesmerizing. Congratulations and thank you! Congratulations on your brother's wedding too!
All the best, have a great weekend,
