    Hi Guys :smile:
    I recently went on a vacation to Mauritius and spent 10 days in this beautiful country . Mark Twain said that god created Mauritius first and then copied heaven from it . Mauritius is a small island in Indian Ocean which is famous for white sand and crystal clear beaches . I lived there for 5 years before moving to Australia and its a kind of home for me as well. The most of the shots are from Trou Aux Biches which is one the finest beaches in the world. I used to go for morning jog on this one . ANyway here are some shots. All taken with Oly OMD and Oly 14-54mm MII .Enjoy and I will upload some more soon .

    looks like a great place to visit.
    Was the second photo taken around sunset? The purplish sky somehow seems off for me.

    Thanks , I agree. Actually 14-54mmMII has shocked me. I had Oly 12 mm , Panny 20 mm , PL 25 1.4 and even Oly 45 mm 1.8 at my disposal but I preferred and liked this lens more .

    I totally agree on Mauritius. I spent two weeks there with my fiance last January, and it was the perfect break to our cold winter in Finland. This year we're going to the Seychelles.

    Wow, what a beautiful place! Lovely colors too . . . just mesmerizing.

    But, since this is a photo forum, one small criticism: gotta get those horizons level!
