More lush plants in Naha, Okinawa.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

This really is a lush place. Is it hot and crushingly humid there?

@Steve Rice: Thanks Steve. I took this about a month ago, when the weather was definitely hot enough to walk around in shorts and sandals (and I got sunburnt) but not humid at all. I've only been to Okinawa on this one occasion, but I think it must be crazy hot and humid in the summer!

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

A beautiful rich composition. The gentle shimmer on the water is especially appealing.

Fine surroundings in a nice composition. (Though a little bit dark in the foreground). Well done.

marc from France

Hello, during a few days I've came to wonder your photos but I've problems with my english to send comments.
I appreciate your shots, and I'll work hard to refresh my memory to explain what I think.
friendly, Marc..

They seem to be growing very well, and a nice sunny day too.
