ON TOP OF THE PARADISE - Seychelles 2013

You would never believe how I managed to get to this amazing jungle setting. A strenuous climb on a high Takamaka tree in the middle of the dense rainforest was necessary to reach this point of view... Now seriously :-). That was our view from the terrace of our stilt-hut at the Mango Lodge. Nevertheless I was sweating, because it was always very hot and humid. Enjoy the view of paradise.

I have heard the beauty of Seychelles before, and your picture only confirms what a heaven on earth that place could be :) I love the freshness of the forest and yes after sweating out to reach to that point, the sea can only fill you with more refreshment and peace. Beautiful picture

hehe i already had envisioned you climbing up the tree, wrapping around the stem hand holding the grad filter on your lens :D
now seriously, great view from that epic terrace, must have been a pleasure to sit there and enjoy the sun.
Amazing series by the way!
