  • Beautiful and serene composition. The sun peeping through the clouds and lighting up that lone boat/ yacht is just awesome.

  • it’s indeed a humbling spectacle to behold.. great shot! :D

  • This is unbelievably beautiful. It’s sometimes hard to imagine that places like these exists when most of the time you are in a city cage. Amazing scenery.

  • Great lighting! The clouds look so dynamic too.
