  1. Indah,

    I have an award waiting for you in my blog. I don’t know if your rules allow you to accept it. But either way, my token of appreciation for your beautiful photography.

    God bless you 🙂

  2. What absolutely stunning photography! I especially enjoyed reading your blog about the coral, coral reef, and coral day. We lived in Bermuda all of February — which you probably already know is surrounded by amazing coral reefs. This small island country (28 square miles) has worked hard to keep their waters pristine — which as you know, takes a huge commitment.
    Thank you for liking my Parrot Fish poem on my blog. I do hope you’ll consider following me. I will be posting some wonderful photos from Bermuda in the future which I’m certain you will enjoy.

    • Hi Lilian,

      Thank you so much for your visit here. Truly appreciate this. My apology just to respond now. I have never been to Bermuda, it must be really beautiful there 🙂 I love being surrounded by ocean and to be able to swim on the sea 🙂 I am following you now. I am looking forward to see your Bermuda photos and beautiful poem 🙂 Best wishes.

  3. What a great blog you have, you clearly have great passion. I look forward to exploring your blog when I get back form my travels. Stay in touch, warm wishes from the UK, Vesna
