Photographer's Note

I was about to call it "Come on board, I'll take you to the Maldives" but it didn't fit...

In fact the picture has been taken on my way back from Kuredhoo to Male airport. It took me 45 minutes by airplane to do the journey. It's called "Maldivian air taxi". 12 people can fit into it, plus the crew and the luggages.

If you ever plan to go there by yourself (not buying a package from a TO), you'd better know that those taxi are as classic ones, less expenseive if you take it with lots of people (you don't want to pay the price of 12 seats while you are alone with your beloved one, do you ?).

What you see here is part of an Atoll. There is no island, nothing above the water. It's a reef.

Maldives are a great place for scuba diving and snorkeling in shallow water. You can meet plenty of fishes, turtles, rays...even sharks if you're lucky (well, it depends on your point of view...).

I adjusted the contrast a little bit but couldn't do much about the propeller-blade on the top middle. It makes a halo impression I couldn't avoid.

I hope you'll enjoy the view as much as I did and still do ;o)
