Photographer's Note

It was that crystallinely azure and the water was so glazingly clear, you don't feel like murking it up, by swimming or dipping into it. You just want to sit by the beach under the shade of the lone coconut tree and admire the view.

The west side of an island, off the coast of Semporna. And this is one scene, where you might like to take off the circular polarizer or turn it to get the reflection. Especially if the reflection is cooler than without it.

Here's a simple rule of thumb when using circular polarizer; Just make sure the sun is anywhere behind you . No need to use your thumb and forefinger to figure out where the sun is in relation to your scene like a tip from some guys I read a few years back. And don't forget to turn or rotate the filter to get the best impression or the deepest color saturation. It's not automatic. I once met a guy who'd clamped it on and didn't do anything with it further. He thought it was automatic.
