Maldives - Holiday Island

Tags: Maldives beach palm photos
I have too many photos from Holiday Island, so I need to split it to 3 parts. That's the reason previous post did not contain many Maldives "postcards". But it is main point of this post - to show why people are going there - white sand, turquoise water, green palms.

Shallow water was full of many different kinds of sea shells. It does not mean they happened to be there naturally. More probable explanation is that people collect them everywhere and dump them out near their bungalow when they leave, because it is prohibited to export.
Flowers was another amazing thing here. BTW, those were taken from ground, no plant or tree has been harmed by us :-)

Umbrella in water

This was single focus point where I had to return often. It was not enough for me to take photos once. Or twice. Morning, noon, evening. Monday, Tuesday, ... it was alway somehow different. Did I take photo with this composition? Yes, but clouds were different, or polarising filter effect is stronger now!

Panoramas

This is a view you get when you arrive boat and stand at jetty.

This photo has weird perspective, sandy beach was small piece of land, about 100 m long, definitely smaller than rest of island. Compare it with the 1st panorama - it is at the right end.
Zuzka forced me to take this photo. I was not very keen to go to deep water with my camera. This was only place with deep water ideal for swimming. Water near to our bungalow was at most waist-deep.

More sand and water for your leisure

Passing clouds made very nice accents of sunshine.

Sunsets were amazing (there will be more photos next time).

Our local palm

Our bungalow was near a palm standing out from rest of foliage, so it was easy to find from distance. You know, when it is very hot and you are considering to go to your place with sun shining directly at you, then it is handy when you can see how far it is.

Tell me how many photos in this post feature this palm!
