Tropical Paradise Puzzle Assembly

I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

I figured it would be best if I started with the lightest color of white/beige being the sandy part of the beach and the 2 huge rocks. Once I figured that out, I was able to move into the light blues and join the rocks on the far side of the image (top).

As shown below the last areas to complete were the greens. That included some near black areas sprinkled among a few areas in the dark greens.

The Ravensburger Tropical Paradise Jigsaw Puzzle is a beautiful image of the beach by  Chad Ehlers who is a freelance photographer and has been travelling the world for 35 years.

The assembly process seemed to go fast then slow then fast then slow then fast to the end. This is not a busy puzzle to take close up photos but the 2 below share the great quality of the pieces however a couple had small creases of damage due to usage.

As with most Ravensburger jigsaw puzzles, the user can expect a great quality and for a previously loved puzzle for 50 cents, I was truly delighted to have ALL the pieces still available.....my bonus round luck again.
