The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is a British overseas territory, located in the Caribbean to the east of Puerto Rico. The islands make up part of the Virgin Islands archipelago, the remaining islands constituting the U.S. Virgin Islands. Technically the name of the Territory is simply the "Virgin Islands", but in practice since 1917 they have been almost universally referred to as the "British Virgin Islands" to distinguish the islands from the American Territory.[1] To add to the regional confusion, the Puerto Rican islands of Culebra, Vieques and surrounding islands began referring to themselves as the "Spanish Virgin Islands" as part of a tourism drive in the early 2000s. Administratively, these islands are part of Spanish speaking Puerto Rico, and were historically ruled by Spain.
The British Virgin Islands consist of the main islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke, along with over fifty other smaller islands and cays. Approximately fifteen of the islands are inhabited. The largest island, Tortola, is approximately 20 km (approx. 12 mi) long and 5 km (approx. 3 mi) wide. The islands have a total population of about 22,000, of whom approximately 18,000 live on Tortola. Road Town, the capital, is situated on Tortola.

Hi Franco,
I really like the textures and colors in this rock grouping. The water is gorgeous. I think the crop is a little too close on the top.

Evelynn : )

Hello Franco,

It is stormy here outside and it very nice to see such a wonderful sunny seascape. Very nice composition. Great sharpness and superb colours.

Hi Franco,
A wonderful landscape capture from BIV friend!. As usual, excelend saharpnes, nice colurs and superb composition.
TFS my friend! Have a nice weekend!


Hi Franco!

This is a simple, yet very pleasant seascape. I like the lighting and the colors very much, also the peaceful atmosphere the picture generates. The water is limpid, the shapes of the rocks delicate and smooth. A nice place, well put on stage!

Kind regards


A fine seascape and a perfect locality for snorkelling Franco, I envy you for being there my friend, couldn't tell whether those rocks were granitic or sandstone in origin though...

mmmh che voglia di partire che mi fai venire.... sei crudele sapendo che non mi posos muovre per almeno un altro mese di scadenze!!!
uffa uffa uffa
bellissima l'acqua. belissime le rocce anche se concordo con evelynn che forse toccano troppo il cielo (ma l'hai ridimensionalta o era già così?)

Hi Franco
Beautiful landscape capture. Good light. Great sharpness. Very nice detail.

Bellissimi scogli sopra un acqua limpida dai magnifici colori, peccato non avere un costume da bagno e soprattutto peccato non essere li, gran bella, bravo Franco, buona serata Silvio

Hallo Franco
A spectacular landscape, There's so much to see and appreciate. It is like a viewing a dream in blue. This image is a real pleasure on the eye, and I wish I could witness it in real. A very peaceful landscape. I really like the textures and different shapes and sizes of the rocks. A simple, yet very delightful seascape. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
