    Very true Varinia ! the golden hours don’t really heighten those lush bright vibrant colours very often. Love the red !

  • The red was everywhere, really made the blues of the sea standout, thanks Tone :-))

    wowee! superb! so what time of day was this? mid? i guess more important for achieving this effect is that you are in Saipan, near to a beach with a great big flame tree!

  • LOL very true !! Was 1430 when I forced myself out of the
    air conditioned car into 35 C and 87% humidity !!
