HDR image of a dive boat pulled up on the beach. A sign facing outward beneath the boat’s awning read “Diving is Fun with Siladen Resort and Spa.” In morning and evening the glossy paint on that boat picked up the sun and seemed almost to glow. The neat beach, colorful ocean, boats moored nearby, and the volcanic island Manado Tua in the background just made the scene more appealing.
