Corong Corong Beach faces due west, unlike El Nido town, which faces north, so the sunsets here are much better. The northern end of the beach below the headland at right is inhabited by Filipino fishermen & their families. About 2km left are a couple of upmarket resorts (Las Cabanas / Dolarog). There was a boy playing on one of the outrigger canoes with outstretched arms, silhouetted against the setting sun. The islands are all part of the Bacuit Archipelago.

Good Morning Chris,
Your photo looks like a romantic shot from a travel magazine. The silhouetted trees make a most delightful foreground, against which to enjoy the warmth of the sunset. Your items are well positioned in the frame.
Have a good day,

A truly romantic composition that beautifully evokes a tropical sunset. The interesting set of silhouettes in the foreground give the image depth and nicely frame the golden reflections of the setting sun. Well exposed to get the most from that dramatic sky.
Gerrit (52283) 2011-11-13 3:53
delicious tropical susnset with the mighty silhouettes of the islands nearby.
The foregroundscene with the trees and the boy playing in the canboat is perfect.

Hi Chris!The sunset colours are great and the silhouettes also, but the silhouette of the boy really catch my eye here. Seems a really calm place and you captured a perfect moment of the day.Even better than that, I can see no tourists around:)!

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The distance between the beach and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky and to the sea. Have a nice day.

Looks like paradise to me! Love the setting sun hitting the distant clouds and mountains.
The charming beached boat leads the eye gracefully to this splendid tropical scene.
eldancer1 (36343) 2011-11-13 18:30
Wow! You don't realize what you're missing until you don't see them anymore. I used to take these beautiful sunsets for granted. Awesome capture with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Oooh ahh, jsut like watching the fireworks. Such an idyllic scene, skilfully captured and realised. The light is magnificent and your subjects in the foreground: the old boat and the boy, are wonderful.

Angshu (56760) 2011-11-15 1:16
A classic scene from the beach highlighted by the sunset light, the lovely hues on the clouds, the reflection on the water, all framed by the silhouette of the trees & the boat. Lovely work!
Longroute (19396) 2011-11-15 2:44
This is really the classical image of a tropical paradise!
so fine is the place, so perfect the composition. The silhouetted palm trees, the boat, the misty distant islands, the gorgeous sky and the reflections on the sea: all contributes to create a fantastic exotic scenery.
Well captured and well framed.
Waylim (25436) 2011-11-15 17:06
beautiful sunset photo, wonderful palette of colors of warm golden tone to rich blue, the silhouette of palm tree give a strong essence of the tropical setting, I can almost feel the humidity in the air. Makes me wish to be there soaking up the atmosphere. The presence of the boy on the boat is also nice to adds a human element to the composition.
