Playa Esmeralda by Mid-Day.

Or the daily view we had arriving at the Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort Playa Esmeralda beach.


I almost carried my camera with we everyday , everywhere. The changes of light, and sky though the day, are providing great photography opportunities. Even if somedays I did not take much photos on the beach. I was quite happy to have it with me, just in case.... You will see what I mean in the coming days...

Corrected horizon again, resized, framed, titled.

PS. We got visitors at home and visited family and friends too this week. So my time on TL on post processing is still restricted. Thank you for your patience.

Hello Robert, wonderful ocean isn't it?... I would have liked to see the small tree on the left cut off, and some of the vegetation on the bottom a bit thiner. The tree on the right side is just right. Wonderful colours specially the blues. Can't wait to see the next ones.


nice place, great light and colours, well done

Hello Robert,

Beautiful sea shot. Nice colors, bright sunny. TFS


Hi Robert,
Wonderful colors and view. Beautiful variety of shades in the water!
Kind regards,

hello robert!
beautiful shot, wonderful colors and great composition.

Fantastic place! Amazing colours!

Bonjour Robert,
Un point de vue spectaculaire sur la mer turquoise. Quelle brillance dans les couleurs! J'aime ta composition vivante avec l'arbre à droite et le feuillage en premier plan, quoique l'interprétation de Dawn soit aussi bien efficace. Je m'interroge cependant sur la lueur rose à l'horizon. C'est assez inhabituel pour l'heure où tu as pris la photo. J'ai fait un petit atelier juste pour voir la différence. Bravo et merci de me ramener au soleil! Il me manque cruellement par ces temps-ci! Annie

Well, if they didn't call it with that name, I would have surgest it. lol
Beautiful sunny shot, Robert.

Hi Robert,

Hi Rob,

The tropical colours & mood are just extra-ordinary! I think I could spend days there just relaxing & working on a tan!

Very well framed with the tree!

Hello Robert,
very nice compo with vivid colours, great framing and sharpness. Nice to see the 'true' colour of the sea through your polarizer. Looks like a piece of paradise. TFS Thomas

Hi Robert,

This is one of the best beach photo I've ever seen on TL. Beautiful flowers accompanied by very blue and scenic ocean. A place where a person like me would yearn to visit.


Hi Robert...
Its good to be back and see some awesome photos like this one. Missed treklens. This one is simply suberb and the colours is to die for. Love the clarity and the sharpness. As always...well done.

hi Robert,

Do tell me, do you want to leave of here when it arrives? Looking at all this his turn, it is not a paradise!
Wonderful visual, that is a dream that we want that it doesn't never end.
Congratulations for the beautiful and wonderful visual
