Amazing how close to the water's edge these coconut trees can grow. Taken very late afternoon, with the setting sun over on the right. It's very unusual to see waves throwing shadows on the beach, as can be seen here, due to the strong side-lighting. I almost decided not to post this, as the top right corner is oe. Taken at Corong Corong Beach, looking south towards Dolarog & Las Cabanas resorts.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Merci de nous offrir un paysage paradisiaque. Cela change du temps gris et triste actuel.
La beauté de cette composition est remarquable.

Hello Chris, very beautiful and heartwarming photo with thenice tropical atmosphere in it. I also wonder how those coconut palms grow up just by the salty sea water. Congratulations, Tolga

molto bella questa scena con la risacca che arriva sulla spiaggia, il bel mare e il perfetto inserimento delle palme,

Yes this is a great one, not only because of the wonderful composition, but like you say; the unique lighting that really adds so much magic. Very lovely, warm regards,

Hello Chris - I have to comment on this shot, I feel as if I could step into the frame and hear the gentle lapping of the waves on the shore and the rustle of the palms as the breeze drifts through them. You have managed the beautiful light very well and the RHC detracts not a jot. Best regards Rosemary

Lovely beach scene. So exotic and charming. Well seen, have a good day.

I like this composition very much, it has a lovely atmosphere to it. The low viewpoint, the shadow play, the warm tropical light, the beautiful natural tones - everything comes together to produce a very successful photo. Well done.

There's always one - even in the tree world - that won't march to everybody else's tune. And that's what makes it so attractive. Another postcard quality shot, with a little difference. I love how the little waves are frozen by the quick shutter like that, beautiful colours and superb depth.
Have a good one

Tu nous régales encore d'un de ces endroits paradisiaques dont tu as le secret:-)
Une très jolie "carte postale" et une très jolie lumière sur l'avant plan.

This looks indeed like a paradise for tourists. Would be fantastic to spend New Years Day here, in stead of in dark and cold Sweden! A very fine picture!
eldancer1 (36343) 2011-11-29 10:05
Coconuts are very adaptable trees they can grow just about anywhere. Love the late afternoon light the shadows provide more depth. Aawesome capture as usual. Very well done, tfs.

I think something is missing in this photo. Ohh I guess I found it me strolling down that beautiful beach :).
magnificent colors and photo!
pierrefonds (68967) 2011-11-29 11:25
The palm trees are sending my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the beach and of the palm trees. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Ciao Chris, great view of lovely place, beautiful composition with palm in FG, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
brianmcc (6219) 2011-11-29 11:44
your viewpoint is very appealing, showing this beach and coastline off to its very best. the colours are warmed by a lovely light. the tree is well placed to frame the magical islands on the horizon.
patmor (576) 2011-11-29 15:18
C'est beau le paradis, merci du partage.
pablominto (53746) 2011-11-29 23:14
A picturesque scene from a tropical paradise..!
Great point of view along the seaside, as the lazy waves are washing the shore...
And the characteristic elements are well in place, like the palms and the limestone cliffs in the background!
carolskie007 (487) 2011-11-29 23:17
El Nido has ever been in my list of local destination, by this photo, you have en-kindled my interest of visiting this part of Palawan. So, to El Nido next summer!

fantastique captage quel bel arbre avec la vuage comme il est planté dans le sable et la vue en fond sur ce bloc de roche, sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié
sacavem (18620) 2011-11-30 2:42
I have a dream of one day visiting an island like this. In Portugal there are beautiful beaches of golden sand, but do not have these lovely palm trees and vegetation.
The colours and lights are beautiful the atmosphere is fabulous, great shot, Tfs...Have a nice day.
RhodieIke (11744) 2011-11-30 3:07
Wow, Chris, What a fantastic scene you have captured on this beach, hope you did not get your feet wet,pin-sharp, super colours, light and management, Love it, well done, Tfs, Cheers Iain.

Fine perspective....split between the sea & the sand. Interesting to have the tree leaning towards the sea & the karst structures in the far BG. Very fine view
jemaflor (100241) 2011-11-30 3:49
Well taken, perfect composition with this particular coconut palm, interesting landscape with sea and mountains in the bg.

C'est tout simplement magnifique, j'aime la courbe de l'arbre, le remous des vagues sur le sable chaud, tout est beau dans ce paysage exotique, magnifique

A paradisiac place, your picture shows that there are not hurricanes and tsunami in that area
Excellent sand quality, sharp picture
Magnific view and pretty colors
