Dear friends, I wish I could capture these islands properly by the chopper; I was hardly able to look into the LCD display of the camera in the glaring sunlight and was just pressing the shutter with all vague presumptions. Here I missed the centering of the islands and part of canopy of the island seen distantly. The prominent fringing coral reefs & turquoise blue water over them are part of the islands in this part of Mahatma Gandhi National Marine Park at Port Blair.

Scattered dark blue is shadow of the clouds.

I dedicate this photograph to my friend Goldy.

Never mind you missed the canopy of the distant island, Subhash. As it is, you have shot the one in the foreground pretty well despite odds.
Since all this is new for me, I'm thrilled by just the look of this place from the air.
The colours are wonderful in this image.
Well done and TFS.

hello dr sab,

well done,
tfs & regards

Hello Subhash,
Your shots of the Andaman archipelago certainly give us an idea of how beautiful this coral paradise is, a place of pristine islands and reefs. Taken from the air the variation of blues and greens is stunning and gives people like me who love to snorkel around coral reefs a longing to do it again.
This is another fine shot of the area and a nice tribute to our TN friend Goldy.
TFS and best wishes,

Subhash, Goldy will be too pleased to see this blue blue blue every where. He will definitely turn blue. Your Andaman tour is really worth reading and probably you can create a travelogue and post your experience there. A doctor showing such a superb natural experience is appreciated. Doc please keep sharing. Simply amazing Ganesh will reply to your mail separately.

Hi Subhash,
Looks very inviting... Good POV and great colors. TFS
Best wishes,

I am stunned, Ranjan! THanks soooooooo much, my friend for this beautiful dedication!
This is actually a stunning image, yes, I wish you'd got the entire island in the frame too, but that doesn't take away the beauty of this shot!You also explain the shades of blue very well!
Thanks again!
