Photographer's Note

The Dominican Rep.
The photo is from november 2012 on a trip to Saona Island in Dominican Republic. 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, 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 palmtrees behind in the background and use that for planting.

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
