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.
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.
I toast my wife for this wonderful romantic moment, and I finished the last of my champagne. It was then I caught the perfect moment of the sun peeking through the moody clouds above the horizon.
The design of its overwater bungalows are mostly in the shape of a leave, resembling palm trees. If I had a drone back then, this would make for an absolutely stunning image. I went around the island to find a good composition for a clean shot of the villas forming a beautiful alignment towards the sea.
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.
You might be wondering. What’s this island that I’ve been to exactly? It should be fairly common to most of us in history, as it was previously used as a quarantine station back in the 19th century. This quarantine station was used for cholera cases that was detected among the immigrants in 1901 and much later, it was also used to quarantine victims of other diseases.
Photo 1 of 2 – So here’s the thing. I’m getting prepared for my upcoming trip and we had lots of things to plan for. My mind can’t settle down from the excitement and I just want to get there as soon as I can. Running through the photos from my previous photo walk certainly didn’t help, and the traveling mood just keep swelling up. And then I found it. I found 2 photos from that walk, that best represent the mood I’m in, and gave that traveling feel an extra touch to it.
Iceland was picked as our honeymoon destination – a place that I would call it “Out of Time, out of Earth”. The massive landscape that is still well preserved, mostly untouched by man’s hands, are incredibly beautiful. Once you get out of the city area, the view before your eyes is undisturbed by any architectures stretching all the way to the horizons. And through my lens, I can’t help but awed by “Nature’s Miracle”.
