    Tuvalu and the Funafuti atoll has some amazing beaches! I can't get enough of these beautiful colors. Just look at that emerald green!

      I want nothing more than to jump into this water.

      The only thing that I may want more is a great break here so I could surf in the wonderfully blue water.

      Thanks Ana and Adam for your kind words!

      @Ana - that trip was indeed a great adventure and it was just plain luck that I got to join the other students on the Bosei Maru vessel. I doubt that I will have get the chance to return to those islands though . . . :(

      @Adam - I doubt that you could do much surfing there 'cause the reef surrounding the atoll pretty much kills all the waves. I'm not a surfer though - maybe I'm wrong?

      Hi Stefan! Congratulations on this beautiful photo. I'm trying to find free quality photos to add to Wikipedia (the Tuvalu articles there are really really scarce on pictures: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuvalu ) and came across this one. Could you possibly be persuaded into releasing this under eg. the Creative Commons Attribution–Share Alike licence (since the photos in Wikipedia must be available for commercial use too)? Or if you're reluctant to do this for the full-resolution picture, the articles would benefit even from a low-resolution version. Please consider it. Thanks a bunch and good luck!
