Went on a quick trip to Maldives over the weekend. Brought along my X100.



Had to take a seaplane from Male to an island 140kms out. Here's Male from the air.

Passed a number of atolls on the way.

Plane landed next to a small platform in the middle of the ocean.

Talk about rubbing my nose in it! I've just slogged through a pretty cold, very wet winter (with very little snow to alleviate the pain) and I see evidence of someone doing a "weekender" to the Maldives?

Jeesh....... it ain't fair.

looks like a photographers paradise !

Depends on what you're looking for I guess. To me, it was dreadfully boring to photograph. I did enjoy the flying around bits though and liked the place well enough. But photographically speaking it was a very 'flat' experience. Though I can well imagine lots of photographers really appreciating the country.
