Island of Rock Islands, Palau
Yesterday I have posted a view to the Rock Islands. Today I would like to show one of the little islands with all the green and the little beach. You could see to left and right the rocks how they are washed out by the water. So some of the islands look like mushrooms.
To get an idea about the landscape please have a look to the WS where I captured a map of Rock Island.

Tu nous présentes l'île de Robinson...
La couleur turquoise de l'eau est un régale.
Plus beaucoup de place pour la végétation sur l'île ;o)

Par le temps qu'il fait chez nous ce n'est pas gentil de nous proposer ce paradis ! Belle vue, la preuve c'est que ces lieux nous font vraiment envie... Bravo.

What a beautiful turquoise sea you have captured, which contrasts so well with the lush green vegetation. Very good sharpness; I assume you used a fairly long focal length.

Tropen einmal klassisch wie man sie sich vorstellt. Kleine Insel (wo ist Herr Crusoe?) mit Palmen, Felsen und Strand. Scheint windig gewesen zu sein. Das ist einfach ein schönes Bild und danke für den Workshop, die Vorstellung ist dadurch leichter zu gewinnen.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

It looks like a true desert island. The colours are perfect and the details well captured. I like how you have included part of the wake from your boat.

da hast Du richtig Glück gehabt, so was zu sehen und fotografieren können. Der Standort fürs Foto - und die Schärfe und Farben könnte gar nicht besser sein.

Another greta shot from the same island.Great composition with that small island with the palm tree (like in the cartoons). Colours are just great.

I like the composition with the fantastic atmosphere and colors.
Very good job.
Best regards. Uğur

Such a paradise island! It's like Tobago Cays when I went in January... Very good view with clear and light blue water!
capthaddock (28790) 2007-03-06 18:22
Hi Achim - this place looks quite different than the tropical paradise beach shots I'm used tio seeing, the geography here looks so rugged and isolated, yet with an iviting pocket of white sand tucked in the middle.
ElAprendiz (30) 2007-03-07 9:37
A beautiful landscape, plenty of light and color. He is pleasant to appreciate the diverse tonalities of green that the sea forms, the composition that gives the rocky structure is superb and the smooth color of the sky, very appreciable. Good work.
carper (96) 2007-03-07 10:18
it's as a dream Achim,
a fantastic pov, good island shot, good quality, for the framing I would made first a black line for the light in the sky, good photo job here.
josepmarin (58357) 2007-03-07 10:39
Another beautiful image of this paradisiac landscape. This island of rock, flood of green vegetation and with such a white sand it contrast very well with the tones turquoise of the water and the very soft blue of the sky.
A perfect place to get lost a few days and to rest taking the Sun.
zeca (19762) 2007-03-07 23:21
Wow! Palau! Micronesia is one of my scuba diving dreams, Achim! I´ve been diving a little bit some years ago, and after some nice diving in the Polinesia and Melanesia islands, Palau was a target destination. I hope to dive there one day. So its nice to see your picture here. The water is beautiful and the rocks are amazing. Nice colours! Have you been diving also in Yap?
vincz (19113) 2007-03-08 3:35
Beautiful picture Achim. this looks like a fantastic place to visit. Remembers me of Thailand a long long time ago before most of evrything got spoiled with turism. here you get such a pristine atmosphere all around. great shot!
doubay (674) 2007-03-08 11:03
wahnsinns Ort und tolles Foto! Wie aus dem Bilderbuch.
Mikos (4326) 2007-03-09 7:40
I envy you totally!!!!
Where did you take this picture from? From a boat? I love the light and the colour, it has to be an astonishing place, in the same way your composition, placing the island or the rock on the midle of your picture, love it!
Have a great weekend!
cobbydale (1958) 2007-03-09 15:33
Lovely composition here Achim, to get the whole island in. It looks so inviting, I wish I was somewhere like that now!
PS have been working away all week, so just catching up on TE :-)

Love the way you capture this beautiful seascape with the amazing colors contrast,
the island with the small white beach is just a paradise. The sea with it's turquoise colors looks great. Very good POV and composition. Light and POV are good.
Well done. TFS.
zumoduvas (2069) 2007-03-25 7:18
Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.
ViktorVaughn (1521) 2007-09-23 19:21
That is perhaps the most beautiful secluded beach I have ever seen. Your workshop shows just how gorgeous the area is. I am quite envious that you were able to visit such a place :)
Were you taking a boat around the islands? The colours are excellent, and you did a good job of including the interesting rock shapes, and the beach.
LondonBoy (1466) 2008-06-16 1:02
This is one of those photos that makes you want to fly to one of those islands and never leave:-)
Thank you for sharing on TE
