Hello Jean,
I shot somethng similar to this in
Goa. Excellent landscape and they are beautiful. Sharp picture and good composition. Well done ganesh

Hello J.P.

This is like one of your other shots but with the light switched on! Now it is possible to see the colours and textures of the trees.

I do like how the trees sweep out to sea as if they are searching for someone!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi JP,

A beautiful scene - just beautiful. I love looking thru the wonderful palms to see the water and the greenery on the opposite side. The colors are magnificent. It struck me when I was in India how different your colors are from those in Arizona.

Hello Jean Paul!
You found a nice perspective of view to these coconut trees. Its a kind of tree that really knows how to live, always nearby some beautiful waters and composing together the most beautiful views of the world. At least for me, a tropical-paradise-style-lover!

Bonjour Jean-Paul,
très belle présentation avec ce beau paysage qui me fait penser a mes dernières vacance
Bonne journée...JP

Hi Jean Paul,

Greetings, Nel
