Sunsets at the Maldives are mostly impressive. Specially with picturesque surroundings like this local dhoni boat, the neighbor palm island, dramatic clouds and a calm sea.

    Absolutely gorgeous. i love the framing and how the boat is the focal point with the golden sunset as the backdrop instead of just capturing the sunset itself. Beautiful colors.

    Great work as always, Norbert. cheers!

    p.s. I’m curious to know where the driver of the boat is? :P

  • Thank you Macky. This dhoni boat is just there for taking pictures like this. It’s not in use any more!
