Beach in the region of Gagil on Yap, one of thousand islands of Micronesia
The population of Yap State is about 10.000, Portuguese then Spanish explorers in the early 15th century were the first foreigners. Yap is probably most famous for its circular stone money which was quarried in Palau and transported to Yap (about 450 km) to be used for a range of social and political transactions.

A wonderful tropical beach all to yourself, what could be better? A classical composition where all the elements are nicely positioned. The tracks in the sand draw the viewer into the scene. Good colours and sharpness.

The beach is sending my eyes toward the horizon which is giving depth to the composition. The palm trees are framing well the beach. The late morning light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Bonsoir, cher Achim,
Ile paradisiaque ! nous avons l'impression de rêver les yeux ouverts.
Un cadrage fort bien pensé permettant d'ouvrir une perspective de toute beauté.
Difficile de détacher son regard devant un tel lieu.

Hi Achim, A lovely beach scene with a wonderful line of palm trees, the sky has allowed for excellent light to shine through & there is a peaceful feel to the shot, kind regards Wilson.

Area of the world which seems out of time… The ballade on this beach, especially at that time of the year, must be very pleasant. A beautiful photograph with a point of view which gives much of depth to the image. Pretty exotic landscape, thank you Achim.
With all my friendships and a very good day,

Have a good day,Danos

A wonderful sunny beach but without people, almost incredible.
Splendid combination between the white sand, the blue sea and the green palmtrees.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

C'est un paysage sauvage comme on en voit peu. Belle plage immense et déserte qui donne l'impression de découvrir une nouvelle terre !

Great framing here to show us this piece of paaaradise. Colors and lighting are nice as well.

really a tranquil place. Like the colour of beach and the surrounding. Nice composition. The top of the trees at left is not be cut, IMHO. Though it is a minor problem to this superb composition. Tfs.

A pretty secluded beach as it looks like. The track left by the receding water creates a good lead-in. Wish there was some element to bind the focus on...otherwise well done!

This tropical beach makes a fine contrast to the winter outside, even if we have a wonderful sunshine today there is still snow left..!
I like the feeling of loneliness here, just what we seek to spend some relaxing time...
A fine composition that conveys the mood so well..!
