Yesterday, I had a meeting at Rimouski (300 km) of my home. Next week, others ones at Montreal (800 km) and Quebec City (600 km). I will come back only next Thursday. The distances are so important here. And the time to covert it, too! So, I don’t have enough time for my friends of Treklens.

Before I leave, I offer you, a sight of St-Lucia, one of the most beautiful Caribbean islands. We passed a very pleasant afternoon on this beach! Beware the waves! See by yourself!

Boasting a drive-through volcano, as well as its own National Rain Forest Reserve with over 19,000 color-splashed acres of natural wonders, St. Lucia’s exotic beauty truly captures the luxuriant allure of the Caribbean. From the distinctive twin peaks of Les Pitons to the cascading majesty of Diamond Falls and the translucent turquoise sea that frames it all, St. Lucia dazzles the eye as it seduces the body and spirit

Interesting picture. There seems to be only one long wave crashing to the shore. That's probably because the crop was almost perfect (I would just cut a bit ogg the top to a little above where the clouds start). I like the cloud formation, above the mountains they look like mountains themselves. I would have brightened the picture a little more and increased the contrast a teeny bit, too. I like the picture a lot! Great shot!

Bonsoir Annie,
Une belle photo de cette vague, un excellent point de vue avec de jolies couleurs, toute une vague! elle est énorme,..bien vue..
Michel

Awesome capture - amazing crisp colours.. sets a nice peaceful mood. Great composition, point of view and perspective.

QUand l'eau dance sur une grande valse avec le vent au son du soleil, c'est ce que la berge applaudit! Ils sont alors des milers de grains de sable à danser joyeusement. Certains partent en voyage au large en aventurier des marées à Maria. C,est une mouette qui sur le toit de l'île, l'a confié à l'oreille des nuages. Mais eux... Ils raportent, ils rapportent tout au ciel... Et lui content d'avoir des nouveauté à dire... il l'en vante à tout vent! Et c'est reparti pour une autre grande valse qui divague.
Maintenant de gauche à droite... Dans les blanches écumes... On figurés dans des formes vagues oui!! Le dragon de mer, qui ondule transversalement la crête. Le pacman blanc de peur devant sa réflection, alors que gueule grande ouverte, il glisse sur le dos de la vague pour aller se fracasser la gueule face à lui-même! et le groupe de petits dauphins qui fuient tout aussi transvversalement car ils ont peur du dragon de mer.

Parce que parfois une photo donne le goût d'être critiqué autrement que techniquement :)

Hi Annie,
A superb seascape.Great colours,POV and compo.TFS.
Cheers!

Bonjour Annnie,
Une certaine idée du paradis, pas si paisible que ça si j'en crois la ligne de vagues...Le vert de l'eau côté écume rend le bleu de la baie d'un incroyable turquoise, on s'y jetterait bien pour nager longtemps...
Mary

Bonjour Annie. Wow, quelle magnifique photo. Les couleurs sont vraiment jolies. Tu as su cliquer juste au bon moment pour capter ces vagues. Félicitations. Dany :-)

Hello Annie, beautiful capture of waves. The motion is clearly visible. Lovely colors. TFS

Vandana

The moment is good
The colours IMHO not so
I think the kind of photography needs a polarising filter

Hello Annie.
Waves waves ... always a greatfull source of many joys
Children to play with-in..source of food for many fish and birds
Source for photographers, even in Holland engeneers investigate the
chances of making profit out of them as an energy resource..
For me ?? I use them in my HairSalons for 'Permanent Waves' ^__^

Hi Annie,
Again an excellent composition. Great timing. You have frozen in time the rushing of the waves. The sea looks so threatening and wild, but at the same time so magical and beautiful!
Great detail and lighting!
Very well done and TFS!

Superb green and blue tones, I like the freshness and purity of those emerald foamy waves. Great feeling of dream holidays.

Bonsoir Annie,

Jolie photo que cette vague sur le point de s'échouer sur le rivage. La vague encore entière donne un mouvement intéressant à l'image et capte l'intéret. Les couleurs et la luminosité sont magnifiques.

Bravo. JYB

Bonjour Annie !

Il est temps de se remettre tranquillement '' au travail '' après l'euphorie des vacances ! J'ai manqué beaucoupd de belles images depuis un mois. Je suis essouflé rien qu'à voir tout le matériel présenté par les membres et amis durant cette période. heureusement, je n,ai pas eu trop de visiteurs pendant mon absence !

Excellent timing Annie et bonne composition. Couleurs tropicales bien rendues.
Bravo !
Robert

Hello Annie,

Please keep on making us dream of the beach...

Hi Annie, I wonder how's the wave out to the frame looks like? I'm sure it looks fantastic. Great moment to freeze.

Ahha Annie,
I'm looking at Pigeon Island National Park here. Isn't this a great place to unwind!
Yes there can be huge and powerful waves.
You sure captured a real roller in a most beautiful way.
Hope you had time to have lunch in the Ladeira Resort in between Les Pitons.
Thanks for showing this great picture and reminding me of happy times spend over there.

Ah, la mer, les vagues, tu me donnes l'envie d'evasion :)
Merci de nous partager un peu de tes vacances avec ce beau bleu turquoise. La vague tres bien saisie.

Bravo et bonne journee, Yan :)

I would love to spend a day on a beach like this with probably warm, luscious water. Too I feel I must mostly shield my skin from the rays of sun, but it's a pleasant fantasy anyway.

Beautiful shot!

Richard
