Fun in Fiji

This is another photo I took at Castaway Island, Fiji.

I was out on the water on a flat-bottomed boat looking at the coral. But I was really more interested in taking photos of the island than under the water.

We had 8 idyllic days and nights on the island and were very sorry to come home.

Hello Janice,
The more I have never seen a picture of you! But when you spend 8 days in a place so idyllic ... I wish and I even one day, or even a few hours to spend there. A beautiful landscape that I not choice but to dream.
Have a beautiful day,

Bonjour Janice.
Un vrai dépaysement au travers de cette belle image qui invite au voyage.
Fantastique cadrage pour mettre en scène cette superbe plage, Félicitations.
Bonne journée.

Good Morning Janice,

I understand your sentiment, exactly!
This looks idyllic!
Excellent light and fine focus.
The composition is great, everything nicely placed in the frame.

Kind regards,

Good to see you posting again. :-)

Amazing view!

Lovely colors, beautiful light.

Hi Janice,
a lovely place, a graet photo. This reminds me of the Mayan Riviara in Mexico.

Idyllic is the way I would describe this too Janice. Wow, it looks so fantastic. I've often dreamt of visiting Fiji .. maybe some day ... on the same trip when I visit NZ!
Colors, composition, sharpness... all really good. I could stare at this for hours.
Enjoy your summer

Hi Janice,
An idyllic stay in a paradisiac place well kept in your memory and your photo files! You will have chance to return there when you want with your superb images!I am amazed by the beautiful range of blue and the quiet atmosphere of the place. Excellent photo in all aspects! Bravo! Annie

Hi Janice,
Looks like you had a real relaxing vacation in the tropics. I wouldn't be surprised if you had your drink from a coconut. :)
I like the clean minimalistic look with the fresh colors of the sky, sea and beach. This is a really a kind of photo that wants me to go there.

it looks like the ultimate drem Janice,Im glad this kind of places still exist.


Idyllic is the word indeed, a beautiful and pristine (and hopefully safe) spot to enjoy a few days away from the usual routines.

Postcard-perfect composition, colours and light here. The simple white frame works well, and though I'm not in to titles-in-frames, it seems appropriate here.

Ahh Janice,
This is heaven. One day........ A picture perfect scene here. All the right elements. I hope you had a fantastic trip. TFS Julie

You certaily have achieved a low POV here, looks like you were standing in the water, not in a boat. Your composition works well.


Beautiful place for taking all sort of pictures.
This one has a balanced composition with hotel on the right and clouds on the right. The low waterline also helps a lot.

I wish I had the opportunity to ride my jetski over there! In Brazil we do have similar costline, with white sand beaches.

Have a great Sunday,
