The short walking track from the beach at Snake Island in the Bacuit Archipelago near El Nido, will reward you with this view. Taken looking back towards the main island of Palawan. El Nido town is top left, but not visible from here. The cyan color of the sea is natural, and occurs around the coral reefs. In deeper water the sea is more blue. The 2 bg islands are karst limestone peaks, jutting out of the water.

Le cadrage vertical donne un effet de profondeur à cette image qui est très impressionnant.La couleur de l'eau est magnifique et l'arrière plan remarquable.

The trees are helping to frame the scene. The distance between the trees and the islands is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the sea and of the islands. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Lovely blue sea well framed, original pov with these two small islands, well also the green fg.
ktanska (27852) 2012-06-24 11:20
That bright turquoise water looks just great. Green vegetation and that dry tree make a good background. And those islands have special shape. Vertical framing fits well.
jjcordier (79297) 2012-06-24 22:19
Très beau paysage. Excellent cadrage vertical et très beau rendu des teintes de l'eau qui sont splendides.
maria-v1981 (10932) 2012-06-25 7:55
A sea that is a show and a perfect framing with the horizon line perfectly set, beautiful emerald green hue.

Wonderful place, nice view on the rocks and nice clear waters.
I think it was possible to have also an horizontal view.
Royaldevon (39344) 2012-06-27 1:01
The colour of the sea is unbelievably beautiful and given even more emphasis by the natural border of light-shiny leaves. Excellent sense of depth from the f/g to the distant islands.
Have a lovely day,
Janusz1974 (2824) 2012-06-27 3:36

Hi dear Chris
Wow, what amazing colours and rock formations. I like the inclusion of the greenery that provides a beautiful natural frame. The vertical frame was a great choice to emphasise the depth and exquisite nature of the rock formations. And that emerald water, wow, what a paradise.
Thanks for sharing, have a great day

Ooh, those enchanting aquamarine colors couldn't help me resist on clicking this photo. Great look out! I liked how the two islands differ in opacity especially from the thumbnail. Nice lighting and colors. A very nice showcase of this place!
