  1. Here are a few images from our holiday in the Maldives, where we were celebrating my wife's 40th birthday.
    We spent time at two resorts, first was Veligandu Island Resort, then the Conrad- Rangali Island. Both fabulous!
    D300 & 17-55 f/2.8

    C & C most welcome.

    Cheers

  2. Nice shots. I did not know of the Maldives till recently when I saw a slide show of the fabulous resorts there. Unquestionably, it is a beautiful place. I am sure you and your wife enjoyed the time spent there.
    I particularly liked the "jacuzzi sunrise" and "sunset over Veligandu" although the horizon seems a little bit twisted for my taste.
