First thing you can think of when hearing the name Maldives is a picture of impossibly blue waters, strikingly white sand and total bliss.
The magnificent Indian Ocean is the major star here... Just imagine waking up to a sweeping views of waters so blue you’ll want to redefine your idea of the color.
Here's a picture from this cobalt blue paradise, hope you enjoy it too.

good that you insist on "true blue" as this looks unbelievable ! especially the sky !
Well actually by now in our latitudes we just have rain and grey as a comparison, then it's hard to figure out this can be true, lol !!
Nicely composed with the line of umbrellas
have a pleasant splash !

I can honestly say I have never seen a bloe like this before, the bluest of all blues. Its a stunning sight, and you composed this beautifully with the sweeping line of the beach and the little beach shades perfectly positioned. Oh to be there right now :)
All the best

non bastano 2 punti per questa foto: ce ne vorrebbero almeno tre volte tanto per il paesaggio che hai ripreso e per come lo hai fotografato creando una composizione che crea meraviglia nell'osservatore.
L'incontro splendido tra il blu del mare che si unisce al cielo quasi senza distacco e il bianco della spiaggia meravigliosa lasciando spazio solo a poche strutture per ripararsi dal sole è uno dei più belli che potessi incontrare e riprendere.
Un ripresa eccellente che sicuramente sarà apprezzata da tutti gli amici di TE.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

Well, you succeeded in gathering the three ingredients of your dream image of the Maldives beautifully on this picture.
It's a simple but attractive composition. The blue and white contrast is splendid!
Best regards, Paul

le cadrage parfait et des couleurs magiques rendent ce cliché superbe
ourania (29445) 2013-06-03 12:12
this is a really stunning view, so beautiful, comforting and soothing. The colours and the atmosphere are fantastic. Your composition is simple, elegant and effective in letting the characteristics of the sea and shore speak for themselves. I like very much that you didn't try to moderate the force of the light and its impact on the sand, your contrast management is superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Ciao Marina, great sea view, fantastic colors, beautiful perspective, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
williewhistler (13541) 2013-06-03 12:18
the cobalt blue is certainly most striking but the thing that I like most is the sweeping curve of the golden sands and the depth generated by the receding beach huts.
A perfect holiday location.
Kind regards Les.
chrisvek (7001) 2013-06-03 14:07

it´s like all shades of blue would meet in one place.Marvelous,I mean both the colors and of course the place,which appears to us like a paradise on Earth.
Actually the scene needs no words-all I wanna do is admire it.
It must have been unforgettable vacation for you!
Have a nice day

A paradisiac beach with umbrellas, powerful light here and sun glasses are compulsory I think
Clear shot with fine colors and contrast
Have a nice day
Angshu (55295) 2013-06-19 4:17
Indeed the blue is striking! I cannot imagine the shade even when I stay by the sea shore, as I look outside the window, the water in Mumbai is in shades of grey or brown...almost always!
A delightful composition especially with the S like curve of the shoreline which is beautiful and the 3 shacks in the BG

I can say only - WOW. This view is like a "fairy story". An Incredible beautiful landscape. Many compliments for you. It's artistic shot.

danos (85221) 2013-07-22 0:35
fascinating the view of the place with the sandy coastline with the umbrellas to ake the scene even more effective.I like the saturated blew of the sea as the sky too,with the light management to enhance the beauty of the place.
gus72 (3719) 2013-08-17 17:07
Hi Marina !!
how good is this place !!!!!! Sensational
We do not need much to look at ...... sand, water and the sky... is more than sufficient. Perfect place for your holidays.
Greetings from Moss Vale
jcpix (13404) 2013-08-20 21:11
Enjoy it, I do! :) All of your pictures from here have been a treat to view. As someone who likes the color blue as much as I do, this is a real beauty...especially with the brown umbrella tops set in front of that sky for contrast and shape. It looks as if one could walk endlessly out in the water before it ever reaches your knees even, amazing depth presented with this composition. The curve of the water meeting the sand as it wraps around the first station is a fun little visual element, almost like an "s." Even without anyone in sight, this still looks incredibly warm and inviting...wish I were there now! Enjoy the day ahead.
All the best,

This magic in blue is my wall paper for the last three days and the more I see my desktop screen, the more I admire your skills. Few artists have been successful in capturing the blue in the glorious way as this. There are different tones of blue each one touching the light and radiating its beauty.
I had been advocating life in the shot, learned from my good old friend Shailnder Shinde, who is no more active here on TE,but this shot forces me to rethink.....as its more attractive without any presence of human life in the shot.

No words...only enjoying the beauty of nature.
