Ahh, all that wait is worth it. No, I’m not kidding. If you’d seen my previous image on “The Red Sun”, you would know that the sunset there is one of the most spectacular display of colors I’ve seen thus far. Since there are no manmade structures blocking or reflecting the strong rays from the sun, the entire sky would lit up with bright orange, pinkish-hues contrasting the blues in the sky. If you’re lucky with the right conditions, the sky would add in some impressive cloudscape to make that view even more incredible.
I wouldn’t have imagined that the walk from the start of the wooden pathway to the end of it reaching the last villa would be such a long walk. While it’s painfully exhausting for guests to walk to and fro, I occassionally find it romantic to take the walk with my wife or traquil walk alone. At night time, the sky is filled with stars glittering with music in the background, as though telling you that the night is still young.
We headed out for a short cruise for a romantic retreat with the sunset. And I wasn’t disappointed with what I saw. It was an incredible moment when the sun eventually revealed itself being the moody clouds.
So real. So true that you feel the warmth of the sun’s gentle caress upon your skin, you don’t feel the cool wind breeze as you drifted along the ocean, seemingly towards nowhere.
Just 20 kilometres north of the main island of Malé, lies the Club Med village. Having one of the most beautiful overwater bungalows with the view of the horizon, gives guests a chance to see the most spectacular sunset with no man-made interference or obstruction. It’s just you and the nature.
On one of the days when we’re at Maldives, it happens to be a staff appreciation day. It’s a day for everyone, including the village chief, to participate in showing appreciation to the team behind all the hard work and preparation they had done to ensure all guests are enjoying as much as they could.
Living in a city can frequently cause ourselves to feel a burnout. Once in a while, people travel around to get things off their mind, breathing the fresh air, meeting people and exploring new territories. I wanted to share this shot because it brought about a particular mood and feeling to it. Unlike the typical holiday photos you see, it contains no elements of buildings or houses, no traces of man-made structures or interferences.
