    Thanks for these lovely pictures! Gosh – we must remember what a beautiful world this is, and endeavour to keep it so. We must respect Mother Earth or she will not respect us.
    I also enjoyed reading your comments. I’ve bookmarked your blog-page and, if I may, will return now and then when I have time.

      It’s sounds human. Very vulnerable, almost heart breaking.

      Oh and thanks. Glad you stopped by.

    Lovely pictures! Wow…almost makes me feel like I’m there instead of sitting in the confines of my depressingly grey cubicle!

    some very nice pictures. If you would like to learn how to colour pop your photos then please check out my blog. If you already know how to colour pop then please check out my blog anyway as i have only had 4 views.

    Great shots….I love the beach, and your right, it mends the soul…in my case, it takes the stress away from the Rat Race I have to live Mon to Friday

      Hello. You won’t believe this but yes. That was all taken in the same summer afternoon with a point and shoot camera. Amazing, right? The sand in that place is pretty stellar as well. Sand so fine it’s like powdered milk. Thank you for passing by! 🙂

    Great pics. The colours in Boracay are picture perfect, aren’t they? I was there 2 weeks ago and simply could not get enough of all the sunsets! 🙂 I especially love the “purple haze”. My pics came out more reddy orange!

    Have to say — I loved the colours in the last shot — something utterly romantic in the truest sense of the word about what you caught there. Congrats on being FP’d.

    Gorgeous photos — there’s nothing like a beautiful sunset. And I saw your comment reply about these all being from the same evening — that’s truly amazing!

    I also love your ‘grateful slice’ on each post, I’ll definitely be checking out your blog again. Congrats on being Freshly Pressed 🙂

    I’d come to admit with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I love reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!
