Stil in the state of Maharashtra , India westcoast.

This is one of the very pure beaches, named "Bhevtya Beach" at Malvan, in Konkan area.

To reach this island I had to rent a fishermans's boat,
for the Ladies, yes.. with the Fisherman himself but unlucky, all the young goodlooking ones where gone :(
Mine was and old skinny grandFather with 3 tooth :-)

This island is sooo beautifull and the only missing factor there was to see Robinson Crusoe and Friday,
however Daniel Defoe .. the writer, placed him at other location.

Thank you and I hope you have a nice weekend

Hi Vandana,
Such a good title for that picture ! Were you in the water to shoot it ? The broken wave is just at the right place, giving movement to the water and a point of interest in the picture. Well see !

A regular beauty Vandana!
Lovely colors and a nice composition.

Hi Vandana, great composition and nice colours. Congrats!


Hi Vandana,
Great tropical suprise! The composition is fine particular the wave is a bonus in this shot. Only some of the palm trees need some more space above their 'heads'. Nevertheless a superb posting my dear Vandana! Wish I was there.

Steel sea Vandana. Excellent coloured presentation. Picture is good arrected. Very good composition. Well done. tfs. stev

Very nice poster style shot. Good colours and expo.
For me frame is nice but to wide.
Regards - Tom

Another beautifully metered shot with excellent saturation and composition - the use of space in the foreground with nothing but open water makes it a relaxing and calming view.
Well done

Well, this being a Friday, the title was well chosen! Good shot!

A beautiful island shot! I can see you selling this as a stock photo. Well done!

These India photo's are breath taking Vandana, I lovve them :-) Bye

Hi Vandana

A marvellous tropical beach scene, complete with resplendent coconut palms, and azure seas. Tfs!

Bonjour Vandana.
Quel bleu intense au niveau de la mer...!
Superbe composition et belle lumière.
Bon cadrage et joli présentation.
Félicitations !

Great one Vandana
A big sigh... Robinson Crusoe: Oh its a dream from
my childhood: -) and I see in your photo what you mean that could be an island for him! (good you came home after a day, that old fisherman could have kept you there :-) Nice and fantastic colors! Good weekend back to you

Hi Vandana,
Too bad I was not there, I would have been your young (*_^) fisherman dear Princess of India.
Showing these wonderful photos, you really want me to go and visit your magnific country.
Fantastic POV, sharpness and colors, we can see the movement of the nice blue sea which seems to have gold floating on it. Perfectly well done. TFS
Have a nice weekend

Hello Vandana,

Colors are great.

Stay well..

Hi Vandana, splendid sea landscape with beautiful colors and great light, lovely composition with palms, very well done, have a nice week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Vandana,

A beautiful tropical composition! I like how the palm trees grow from small to large. Great POV & lighting.

Well done

Hi Vandana, it looks like Crusoe's island all right! Very well done, colour wise, pov and composition and sharpness.

Love it! Cheers, Yan :)

Hi Vandana!
This is sooooo very beauuuuitful! It looks so very nice and warm too while I sit here waiting for spring to arrive here! I like everything about this, the color, contrasts, the highlighted wave breaking ..great work. TFS

Thanks for your commments on my photo "Early Sunrise (46)" :o)

Hi Vandana, I need to know your country and the Robinson Crusoe island, great shoot, nice colors and contrast, a great photo.


Hello Vandana,
si je t'affirme que mon prénom est "Vendredi" est ce tu pourrais me déposer sur ton île.
Paysage paradisiaque. Tu nous donnes l'envie d'y aller quelques temps (bien je m'ennuierais vite de mon pays si beau). Je ne suis decidement pas une globe-trotteur sauf dans ma tête.

Hello Vandana,
A nice beach well captured!
This is what we dream about during the dark and cold winter nights, hehehehe...
Good details and attractive colours, well composed image!
Pablo -

Nice 'n sharp. I like the Ocean background.
Great shot, well done :) TC xx

Hi Lady Vandana;great a view,good sharp,good colors,very nice frame,tfs,regards....

Beautiful and ver serene...love that water and trees...has to be a 'Vandana' capture:)

Very good composition. It looks like you were actually in the water to take this shot. Well done.

Salut Vandana

Très belle photo, la mer et le ciel sont de toute beauté.

Amazing place, great image and vantage point. I would love to spend some time in this place :-)

Hi Vandana,
This photo resembles a painting which I made on a wall in my living room!
Well, Vandana, at least you didn't risk falling in love with a "Don Juan"! I've decided to dance only with non-attractive men from now on in order to protect my heart :)
TFS this beautiful scenery. It's so good to know that there still are "pure" spots on the planet.
Have a nice day.
Kind regards,

Like "Teluk Bayur" (song from Indonesia)

great POV and wow... everything good.


Hi Vandana,
I'm trying to see if I can find Friday, but without any luck. He must be hiding from you. I like the bright blue colors in this photo and the perfect low POV, which helped to let each tree standout from the horizon.

Hello Vandana,
Oh yes, I looks like Robinson Crusoe's island! This is a beautiful place that looks so wild and isolated. This is a nice POV, composition with excellent colors and exposure. Well done! Thanks,

Hi Vandana,
Really a A+ photo. Fantastic POV with the line of palms and beautiful water. Good framing as well. TFS Julie

Hi Vandana,

This certainly is a beautiful place and you captured it very well my friend. I like how you timed this one and included the white crest on the wave, I think this gives a nice feeling of movement.

Excellent shot



Bellisima toma muy nitida y el paisaje enviadiable


Excellent work Vandana,

well done.
Best regards, Daniel

This reminds me of a beautiful tropical place that I knew so well. Great picture, looks so appealing in the gloomy, cold, Toronto afternoon.

Hi Vandana,
Visiting islands like this is the dream of a lot of people. As soon as I see palm trees, I got a more relaxed feeling - difficult to explain - I just love them. I even taught my grandson to make a drawing with palm trees and now (to please me) he loves them also.
Too bad you had a grandfather as skipper.
TFS story and picture,

Hi Vandana,
This is a so beautiful tropical shot with lovely colors, good point of view and a nice composition.
Good work.

Best Regards,

Hi Vandana.

Yeah, you are right..This shot has similarities with my shot too..
Lovely and a fascinating composition you have, more better than I did..
Salutes, dear friend.
