I just lost everything I had just typed here in the 'Quick Reply', so I'm going to cut to the chase.

Alex's 'Paradise Found' is this week's winner. No doubt its warming effect, the calming waters, influenced my decision, much due to the cold snap we're currently dealing with.

Everyone, excellent job. There were several entries that made this selection a tough one. Bravo to you all!

Thank you Kevan! I took this photograph while on vacation this past summer in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas aboard a Turkish gulet (a type of hand-built sailboat). The sailboat captain found this little island with an alcove that was very serene. We swam in the water a bit and it was very refreshing especially since it was very hot out. Getting off the Zodiac boat and onto the island while carrying expensive camera gear is always tricky, but it was worth it. I have several of them in this series that I was quite proud of.

I appreciate your kind words and will post a new challenge tonight.

I really enjoyed Mark and Maureen's photos this week, but thought cappo's Elephant Rock was really cool. Carn Brea Castle was also awesome. Tough competition this week. Congrats to all.

Cheers.
