[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mana Island, just 32km from Nadi International Airport, Fiji, is the largest in the cluster of islands that nestle in the Mamanuca Group of tropical islands.

It has two fresh water swimming pools that are located on the north side of the island. This is the newest pool and is a horizon-style and includes a therapeutic spa.

I took this shot first thing after breakfast on our last day when no one had come for a swim. We only used this pool once, preferring to swim in the beautiful green waters.

Hi Janice

A moody & atmospheric shot, but relaxing & peaceful. Excellent reflections. Well done!

Looks very, very inviting the sea and the pool although I prefer the sea in any given moment.Nice composition and colouring.

Hi Janice, when someone mention the Fiji islands, the picture coming to my mind is something similar like this !! :)
Nice POV and reflections! TfS

Hello my friend, welcome back... sorry I have been flat out with jobs... haven't had much time to visit most TL members. What a beautiful shot you got here, love the calm and peaceful feeling, must be very relax. :) Nice composition, with the sea and the pools, reflection is excellent. :) Well captured my friend, thanks for sharing

I love these kinds of pools, they blend into the scenery so well. Looks like paradise to me! I love the soft peaceful look this photo has, the soft puffy clouds in the sky and the clear reflections of the palms in the pool are lovely Janice. Excellent work.

Envie de vacances dans les mers du sud, avec cette piscine et cette magnifique vue.
Ah la vie sous les cocotiers.
Bien photographié.
