I love it when professional photographers, or at least those a lot better at taking pictures than I, fall in love with beach bars and take a moment to snap a few images. This photo of the On the Rocks Bar at the Sunset Beach Hotel in Seychelles is one such example of a professional photographer plying his craft the way we all prefer – taking pics of beach bars. And while the On the Rocks Bar may not be a beach bar per se, it’s close enough and to be honest, the picture was too good for me to not feature it.
The photographer, Mark Smith, describes the bar as follows: “One of the best sunset bars in the world. The service isn’t great, and it’ll take 30 minutes to get your bill totalled, but who cares!” Brutal honesty, good or bad.
