Photographer's Note

During our honeymoon to the Seychelles we stayed on la Digue for a few days. Anse (beach) Source d'Argent is voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. And very popular amongst photographers. The granite formations along the beach are absolutely stunning! It is easily accessible, it is located inside a "park" (tourists have to pay an entrance fee (*)). It is the most crowded beach on la Digue. Crowded on la Digue means that you will be sharing a kilometre of beach with a couple of other visitors. :-)

La Digue and Seychelles overall is quite a dangerous place for a photographer. Evereything is so stunning that it is quite hard to concentrate on anything. And it is simply impossible to catch everything.


(*) An interesting thing about the Seychelles is that many places charge (often quite high) entrance fees for tourists. For seychelloises it is free. In a way it is fair. The government of Seychelles is (well, at least still was in 2002) officially quite keen on providing equal opportunity for its citizens (public school and education etc.).

Cropped, resized, highlights adjusted, added tiny bit saturation, light USM, framed

I'm not so sure about the frame, but I wanted to try something a bit different for me.
