“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 travel around the world with MeFoto Globetrotter, my trusty Nikon with a set of LEE filters all packed into an incredibly reliable Manfrotto backpack. These are some of the gears I carry around to capture and produce these phenomenal and incredible imagery.
Beautiful Sunset View at Maldives Villa…
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.
This day, I was presented with the bright orange sunset. On other days, there’s a good mix of orange and pink hues graduating to the blues. I was not intending for a sunset that day because we had made a reservation for a romantic dine at one of the restaurants.
So obviously I can’t stay till then. But I wasn’t disappointed. At about 4-5pm, the colors started to come alive. I camped for the sunset near the villas I posted previously, to create the composition I was looking for in my imagery.
And there it is, the “Beautiful Sunset View at Maldives Villa“. The strong contrast of colors between the sky and the turquoise water made this image vibrant and simply a joy to look at.
