The View from the Sea Plane

April 6th, 2011

As promised earlier, here are some pictures of the view from a sea plane made in that most extraordinary of countries, the Maldives. They were made in December of last year. I was pretty much glued to the window, in awe.

Above, taxiing by the quay before takeoff.

Above, the view onto the international airport in Male. It’s basically a single airstrip.

Above, islands, lagoons, and ships, as far as the eye can see.

Above, stunning coral reef-ringed lagoons.

Above, these lagoons are pretty big. That’s an oil tanker up in the right corner.

Above, one of the resort islands. You can see the U-shaped string of bungalows out on the shallower waters of the lagoon.

Above, a lone, remote and uninhabited island. Seen on the return leg to Male.

More coming soon.

Sunset in the Desert

April 3rd, 2011

These photographs were made in Liwa at sunset, from the top of the massive dune featured previously on my blogĀ here.

There’s nothing quite like a sunset in the desert. The view from the top of that dune onto the changing sands below… Well, the peace it instills in you adds years to your life.

More coming soon.
