Lagoon, Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Nik (Bude, United Kingdom) on 25 August 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Out on a snorkelling trip on the lagoon at Bora Bora. The swimming pool colour (and temperature) of the water has to be seen to be believed.

Please have a look at my other photoblog at where I post daily images of the South West of England (where I live). I really appreciate your comments on both of them.
