New Caledonia Retreat

We took a drive one evening and discovered this little hide-away retreat not too far from Noumea. I get so frustrated when I see beautiful scenes in the middle of the day when the lighting is harsh and flat, but once in a while I'm in the right place at the right time! This was one such evening. Incidentally, I tried a little HDR on this, but it ruined it.  I love the shadows and contrast in the low light just before sunset just as I saw it, with very little editing.

It looks idillic especially in the evening light. That harsh light was a problem on our recent trip.
