On the other side of this karst headland at left is the town of El Nido. This is a nice spot to anchor and go snorkelling over the fringing reefs or just swimming or sunbaking on the beach. The only way in & out is by boat.

Bonjour Chris
A dream beach and crystal clear water ....good POV..super sharp
image with great détails of the cliffs...surely paradise
on earth....TFS

Ciao Chris, great view of lovely beach, splendid light, wonderful natural colors and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Chris, the only thing wrong with this shot is the people and boats already there... I'd rather have it all to myself..Love that clear water. Fiona

Hi Chris,
A nice POV to capture this beach with such high cliffs so near and creating shelter for bathers. A very sharp image with perfect light management. Nice pale colors rendering a soft atmosphere.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Chris.

Very nice diagonal line of cliff leading away, I like the dotted greenery amoungst the rockface and the distant people giving scale.

stv ;o))

Hi Chris,

maybe because here in Europe it's winter, but i find particularly attractive images like these.Heavenly setting.Soft colours accentuate this relaxing atmosphere, very good is the depth as much as the sharpness.Boats' colours (especially) and those of bathers' clothings (to a lesser extent) create a good contrast with colours of rocks and vegetation.



Beautiful! Makes me want to visit my old country. My brother just built a beautiful very modern vacation house in southern Cebu, been bugging me about visiting. He goes there every 6 months. Great pov and dof with good details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Chris,this looks so apealling,with all the rain were having in our part of the world.You certainly have captured the serenity & beauty of this secluded cove.Inviting sandy beach & green blue waters.The boats & sunbather add mood & scale to your composition.
