Trees of Fiji

This is one of the first photos I took after I landed on Mana Island, an island in the Manamuca group of islands in Fiji. I just looked up at the sky through the trees and thought, "What a beautiful photo for TrekNature!"

So I hope you all like it...

Here you can see some of the many Coconut Palms found on the island. Cocos nucifera popularly known as Tree of Life, Tree of Heaven, Kalpaviriksha, Tree of Abundance, Natures’ Supermarket.

The coconut is a palm, in strict botanical terms it is not a tree. Also in this photo are Acacia trees, hibiscus and even breadfruit trees.

Hello Janice,

I think this is an excellent shot. I like the POV a lot and the exposure is very decent (altough the right part looks a wee bit too dark on my monitor). The colors are lovely and the composition is great. Well done & TFS!


What a beautiful photo for TrekNature :)

Very good nature picture with good angle and very good nature colours.

A rushed weekend critique I'm afraid,
Great capture Janice, thanks for posting.

Hi Janice,

Hello Janice
I also have these moments also where the sheer beauty of the surroundings is overwhelming. Sometimes makes it difficult for me to concentrate on the technical side of shooting it. Thanks for sharing this one.

Hi Janice,
A really nice shot here. I love palm trees, and blue skies. Well Done..Is the beach on the orher side of these trees I hope???

Hi Janice,
what a wonderful view, I like the sky with the clouds giving the perfect contrast.
I also like the sunlight shining in the leaves of the palm-tree and give them an orange colour. Thanks a lot for showing this "good spirit" photo, what a wonderfol world, bye

Hi Janice! I do not have the time to write a decent comment. I give to you the well deserved smiley.

Thank you for sharing pictures and notes and for the enjoyment which they give to me.

Have a wonderfull day!
