Kayak Points the Way

Explored. #52. Thank You


Must View LARGE


Shot at NIKOI ISLAND . You may notice the coral reef at the front section of the waters - viewed large. The sand closer to the waters had more mositure, hence not as white as in my previous shot.


More on Nikoi .....At the turn of the 20th century , trade between India and China was brought by sailing ship and it was more efficient to use the trade winds to sail to the bottom of Bintan rather than into windless Singapore harbor....more later.


handheld, lieing flat on the beach, manual stitching of 2 exposures. Each of the exposure was passed thru some tone adjustment in lightroom and then manually stitched in CS3. No HDR, No Blending. The low angle of the clouds is due to the "lie low" shooting angle
