Maldivian Sunsets

Being on a beach at sunset is a beautiful experience, in Maldives doubly so. You can gaze into the golden water or watch the waves at play. On the day I clicked pictures, there was a gentle breeze as well. The heat had substantially subsided. Whatever the sun touched it turned golden. The sky was putting up a show!

There was a tussle going on between the sun and the clouds. The sun wanted to retire for the day in all its glory, the clouds were determined to be a part of the play too.

  • Now is TV 1/500 high enough shutter speed to keep the pictures in focus, or like always I will get them blurred with the 75-300 lens.
  • Why did I forget the connector for the tripod at home? I could kick myself again, I did this for the second time. When I was in South Africa I actually forgot to pack the tripod. No wait it was the third time as once in Malaysia I had a broken tripod with me.
  • Most of the time I was desperately searching for a foreground, like a moving boat in the picture above. Without any foreground the sunset pictures can be quite drab.
  • I was really careful about walking on the sand because I, with my main camera and the cell phone, was standing by the edge of the water. I have already fallen in the water with these two objects once at a coral beach (read that story) and I call it my most expensive dip ever! Maafushi was a coral beach too.
  • My hair was firmly tied back or it blows in front of the camera lens, mucking up my pictures. It has a tendency of not blowing in any other direction but in front of the camera. So that is how I knew there was a breeze as I tied my hair back quite severely.
  • There were many other camera wielding tourists at the beach, all equally determined to get that sunset picture and we would keep getting in each-others frames.

But I am equally sure if I ended up without a camera my dominant thought would be to kick myself again!

  1. I agree, even I want to enjoy a sunset without my camera, but I know that’s not possible! Lovely shots and great description! Enjoyed reading the first part!

  2. Beautiful :)also loved to read the post. πŸ™‚ And yes the joy of capturing such wonderful view is much more than to enjoy it without camera.

I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year!
