Best known beaches in Aruba are Eagle Beach and Palm Beach on the nortwest coast. My favourite was actually the narrow strip of sand just east of the Oranjestad city centre (where those cruise ships are). Trees grow right next to shoreline and offer welcome shadow.

Hello Kari,
Wow, the contrast between the city and the huge cruise ship is amazing. Both elements make a great backdrop for this wonderful tropical beach with the clear white sand and the overhanging trees. The people are well included.

Hi Kari,

Looks preferable to the cold of northern Europe at this time of year. Good sharpness and a strong clear light. The floating hotel at left provides a focal point. Tfs!

Hello dear Kari and have a nice time
and a happy new day
wonderful atmosphere of summer holidays
we are in the heart of the winter
but the weather changes and the summer is coming
lucky people down there enjoying tehir time

Hi Kari,
a pleasant view to see during our winter, nice the beach and white sand, well composed with people in the Fg and in water ...

Hello Kari,
This narrow beach looks very family friendly. Small children could have fun here. Even I would enjoy the fine sand and the nice colours of the sea, while seeking protection from the sun in the shade of the trees. That cruise ship looks almost absurdly large but it makes an interesting focal point in the distance. The two ladies in the foreground balance the composition well and the light and colours are beautiful.
Best regards,

Hello, Keri!

That's a place in the Caribbean that I don't know yet, but I'd really love to! The beach seems to be quiet in spite of the big ship arriving in the background. Beautiful tones of green of the vegetation in the foreground, besides the wonderful colors of the Caribbean Sea! Wonderful job!

Hi Kari,
Beautiful color and atmosphere in this scene. All the color is very soft and the figures ,trees and ship make a great composition.



Hello Kari,
A beautiful sandy beach but not many bathers to spoil the view. I like the point of view and the inclusion of the overhanging tree, which a wonderful splash of contrasting colour.

Hi Kari

Direct from the moored boat to the sandy beach, having a rest in the warm water

Hello Kari,
Just the kind of scenery I am longing for after a long winter, I love those huge trees right by the water.

a sunny day, thank you
