[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Caribbean Sea is the world's fifth largest body of water. With a total area of 970,00 square miles, it is slightly bigger than the Mediterranean. The region's islands are incredibly varied, ranging from lush and tropical to arid semi-desert. The climate is ideal, with year-round temperatures averaging around 89 degrees F.


This was a view from the ship somewhere between St. Thomas and St. John.

Beautiful image Jane,
Your making me envious right now! All I see out back is blowing snow!!
This looks like a great place to spend some time lying on the beach, although I don't see any sand in this particular shot.

Hello Jane, My supervisor's sister:), very beautiful scene shot from Caribbean Sea.
Blues and islands are great.
TFS and greetings,

Ciao Jane,
nella tua galleria ci sono pochi paesaggi, questo il primo da considerarsi tale in senso stretto, negli altri era sempre inserito un fenomeno atmosferico come soggetto principale, il risultato molto buono, la composizione equilibrata e i colori sono splendidi.

Ciao Jane, beautiful landscape, wonderful view of lovely place with fantastic colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Jane splendid seascape shot in all aspects. Colours and composition very beautiful.

Ah the beautiful clouds at the background, the fantastic colour of the water with the undercurrents well apparent, the beautiful islands, everything in this picture make me dream, Jane! My world has now turned white and black for FIVE months and it seems I don't feel ready this year. You must have loved your trip, thank you for this nice picture of dream islands,


Hi My sister Jane,
After this beautiful sescape shot, i think that have to visit this beautiful place:) You see that i am ver jealous:D.
Great shot my sister. TFS this fine image.
Take care!


This one has a postcard quality to it..I know my postcards as starting int he 1950's I saved all of them as my father, mother and I traveled the E US so much...and your image reminds me of that time...neat..I love the way photos can transmit such feelings..

It's a beautiful vista Jane, it's where I would like to be for about a months vacation :)
Terrible news from India as you say, I just caught it.
The world has become a dangerous place for us human animals :(
Well done,

Hello Jane,
A beautiful view from what must have been a relaxing cruise. This is a fine composition, the different headlands giving it a good perspective. The blues are great and make one want to do some snorkeling!
Thanks for sharing this and evoking memories of our trip to Tobago some years ago.
