Photographer's Note

Hello TE

At the east side of Maiga Island, looking to the north.

Earlier you have seen the coconut palms in abstract and the huts by themselves, but here you will see how tall the palms grow on this Maiga Island, estimated to be 30-45m high and clearly seen miles away in the sea. Here, the tide was drawing out and the boats were resting by the side of the huts. The word 'shelter' works well here in this island, as the palms indicate that destructive strong wind is rare to allow them to grow tall and straight - no fallen palms. So the huts are safe from wind forces. I strolled along the beach and found the tall palms a good framing subject both vertically and horizontally and put focus on them. No direct strong light, so the exposure was mild.

Happy viewing. Regards, Bill
