Snake Island in the Bacuit Archipelago near El Nido (Vigan Island). This sinuous sandbar links 2 islands at low tide. Taken from atop the ridge. There's a short walking track. The tour boats or 'bangkas are lined up at left for lunch on the beach. You can also see the fringing coral reef in amongst the turquoise waters.

POV very well selcetd for this plesanat view. Good framing with the vegetation in the FG which give depht and natural framing. The boats and especially the peoples give an idea of the important scale of the place. Nice harmony in the green colors too.
Have a nice week,

I like the oblique placement of the line of boats and the sand spit. The framing trees make a good contrast with the turquoise tones of the water,

The distance between the beach and the opposite shore is griving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the tropical scenery. Have a nice day.

une très belle ambiance dans des teintes nuancées de bleus et de verts, j'aime beaucoup cet avant plan qui donne un peu de relief à la scène.
My best regards.

Hi Chris, Anather paradise beach. This snake island is incredible, wonderful walking in 5the low tide. But you must be pro bably ncarefdul not to remain there too long. To go for a trip with these bangkas would be nice option too.

molto bella questa baia circondata da una natura lussureggiante.
Barche ferme e striscia di sabbia su si vede gente passare.
Bella e naturale la resa dei colori,

Marvelous turquoise waters. Taken from your high POV, like the repetition of the boats. You've framed the scene well with the foliage. Good work!

Oh wow, this is paradise. There are some serious emerald tones here that I didn't think could ever be real, but in fact exist. Excellent POV and I love the natural framing with the greenery. The couple walking along the beach, together with those boats on the diagonal, really give us a sense of how untouched and characteristic this place is. Bravo!
TFS, have a good one

Beautiful photo, dear Chris, the colors are very pleasant. You have composed this image so perfect, with excellent photo quality that allows us to appreciate the clarity of the water. The trees in the FG gives great depth to the whole scene, creating a beautiful natural setting. Congratulations especially to perfect sharpness. Excellent work, you have captured a wonderful landscape!
Ciao, have a nice Friday!

A white sand-strip is used by people to stroll along between the two areas of blue and turquoise water, fabulous place, Chris.
Multi-green surrounding, scale by the boats anchored, taken beautifully from a high POV.
Have a nice weekend,
