Indonesia: Nature + Water Challenge finished on Thursday, 09 May 2013 Indonesia has literally thousands and thousands of islands.

It could feature a beach, waterfall, river, lake, etc. Please, no images that you've already used in prior challenges . . . let's see something fresh and new from you. (I will likely depend on help from other challenge participants in tracking down violators. So, images that are repeats could be DQ'd at any time . .. even after the challenge ends!) See my earlier challenges, or send me a PM, if you have any questions about what an "environmental" portrait is. If people are in your image, they should *not* be posing for the camera.
