Photographer's Note

The photo is from a hide away island in south Thailand. Our wish is that it will inspire somebody to plant coconut trees very near the water, because it makes the beaches so beautiful. See the photo.

Because of visit of many tourist on the beaches in Thailand, Caribbean and other tropical beach-places, coconut-trees do not get peace to replant on the beach very near the water. Result: Beaches changes - become wider and wider! The bounty/postcard-look with coconut trees hanging from the beach and out over the water that is becoming more and more seldom, and that is a shame!

Often you can find a small germinating coconut-plant among the palm trees in the background and use that for planting. We also hope that responsible locals, hotels, etc. will do replanting!

We always try to plant one or two coconut trees - very near the water, when we visit a tropical beach. We hope that there will be more places like this, so that such beautiful sceneries can be preserved.

The photo is also in high resolution for big pictures/photos. More photos on our website
