Runway of the airport of St. Barthelémy is short and ends right on the beach. One really needs to be careful and check that no aircraft is landing or taking off when crossing this runway extension.
It is wet and dark here in Finland, so this marks the time to get away to south and sunshine.
Happy New Year!

Hello KAri ,
As you say , a dreamy view , in those cold or rainy winter days . Even the place seems to be dangerous ;)
I like especially the colors and the perfect white sand .

Interesting shot, showing us that part of that beach that we don't usually see this way - without people flying around... :-p))
Is this your next destination for the holiday season? Have a nice rest and enjoy every minutes of your trip!

a wonderful shot to see at this moment when it is dark outside my window. I wish could be in St. Barthelémy now:) Interesting place in many ways, it was under Swedish rule for a period.
Sharp and clear shot with nice colors, the sign to the right create a good depth, well done!
Happy New Year!

Hello kari, Indeed, this must be strange to see there planes landing, so close to the beach. fantastic view of the colourful small houses hidden behind palm. What a place for holiday and how nice memories.
I wish you a lot of health, happiness and joy in this new year.

wow, such nice - almost idyllic (if not for the red warning!) view! but at least, this sunny day reminds us that cold dark winter will be gone and we will be enjoying sunshine and warmth again :)
best wishes of a Happy new Year to you!:)
greetings from Stockholm!

What a strange beach, that you have such constant safety concerns if you want a swim. Well it's beautiful at least and I like how you positioned the sign in the right foreground corner, with beautifully saturated colours and excellent management of the strong light.
Happy New Year and Bon Voyage! See you in 2014!

We get a wonderful summer picture with a beach scene.
This during the winter time.
Also a nice generally picture.
Very well done, TFS.
Nice end of the Year, and Happy New Year.

and its cool to see the sign and the warning.
Happy New Year!

Good presentation of this beautiful beach with dangerous zone. Splendid colors and light. Well done!

The distance between the beach and the hills is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the activities on the beach and the details, the colours of the houses on the hills. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauties of the colours. Have a nice day.
