Balearic Islands: Mallorca, summer 1993. We used to live in northern Germany and spend the holidays in Mallorca, enjoying sunshine, warm weather, calid breeze...
Doesn't the water look inviting? those were the sailing years, away from the beach and the tourists, the actual color of the water was an incredible, shiny, crystal clear turquoise, I wish my little camera could have captured the fascinating shade...

  3. When I spent 6 weeks sailing in the Bahamas the water fascinated me the most. It was more shades of blue than I thought possible. And so clear that a deep deep depth looked to be inches down. I loved it.

  4. Beutiful color yes! It really is a pity that the cameras often can't pick up the real look of it. I always wish that the camera could catch exactly what the eye is!

  13. While in the Bahamas I saw water in the colors of blue I have never imagined...it was so beautiful. I took pictures, but they just do not capture the shades of blue like I wish!


    Did you have a nice little getaway?

  19. Oh...I just want to dive right in and feel the water. Hmmmm. I was in the Caribean 3 years ago. No water nor beach like them in the world. Perfection.
