Peaceful sunset on the river. In fact, it wasn’t so peaceful at all. It was a terrible shot. A huge pile of mosquitoes attacked me and they bit me badly as well. I quickly took a couple of shots and ran away, hoping that mosquitoes were not malarial :)). I can’t even close imagine how people live on this river and have lived hundreds of years before us. After all, there was not even mosquito repellent before. But a lot of people live in houses on stilts on the river for hundreds of years and make money with fishing. It remains a mystery to me how they manage to get along with these mosquitoes. And it used to be a home to crocodiles before!
Only female mosquitoes bite humans and animals. Males feed on flower nectar.
Calm sunrise in the Maldives. The sea is quiet and the fish are not scared away by the screaming and floating tourists yet. Fish come very close to the shore searching for food. The water is so transparent that they are clearly visible. Among the fish coming close to the shore early in the morning, sometimes I even saw small reef sharks. Despite their intimidating appearance the sharks are safe for humans.
In the Maldives, every sunset and sunrise is great because of the huge and beautiful clouds. The damp climate and evaporation give photographers a chance to get another masterpiece.
Maldives is the lowest country in the world. Its ground level is averaged at 1.6 meters.
The first minutes of another sunny day on the Maldives. These paradise islands always have stunning sunrises and sunsets. I get up early every morning here to meet the dawn. And nature favoured me with amazing shots.
The Maldives has about 200 inhabited islands.
