My last view of tropical Boracay Island, from the Cagban Pier at the southern tip of this idyllic island. Over 5 inches of snow here in Korea today, a little more than the mere 5cm predicted, so I felt like seeing another vision of a warm snowfree paradise today. More info here:

Hi Chris,
You now have the memory. A very wonderful scene. Nice color saturation and well composed. Good lighting and beautiful cloud coverage. TFS Julie

Hi Chris,

The man with the bamboo pole adds 'oomph' appeal; the image is well exposed and composed. Wow I long to see that blue water again, this is quite familiar, and it is indeed hard to leave Boracay especially after a good vacation. Cheers


P.S. We have over 30 inches of snow on the ground right now. I am lingering longer in bed before I dig up my car.

Hi Chris,

A nice warm shot for a cold day, although I guess it is a little bittersweet. The gentleman with the pole is well positioned in the frame and provides a nice human element to the shot. The colors are wonderful, particularly the water.

We got an additional 20" of snow to add to the two feet we got over the weekend. So far we have more snow this winter than in any on record.

Excellent perspective with a very strong crop, a fantastic bright light, an accurated sharpness, and wonderful vivid colours.

Bonjour chris.
Bonne image informatique sur le moyen de locomotion pour rejoindre cette belle île.
La couleur azur de l’eau est aussi très caractéristique de la région.
Bonne journée.

Hi Chris,
Beautiful presentation of this lovely place,
Excellent POV. and details,
I love the tree on background and the colors of the water...
very well done with the boat too..

Hi Chris,

The distance between the two boats is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
