[Photo Journal] Chasing Clouds in Maldives

Myra here.

We are excited to share photographs every Tuesday from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Chasing Clouds in Mahibadhoo, Maldives

This was our last day in Mahibadhoo – we were on the speedboat very early morning on the way to Male where we are staying for another night before our trip back to Singapore evening of the next day.

I could not take my eyes off the clouds and the way the sun’s rays peeked out of the stormy and fluffy clouds and just the beauty of the deep blue sea. I only used my iPhone to capture these images – but I hope my awe-struck wonder at such magnificence was conveyed through the photographs.

“So fine was the morning except for a streak of wind here and there that the sea and sky looked all one fabric, as if sails were stuck high up in the sky, or the clouds had dropped down into the sea.”
― Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

“The sky, drunk with spring and giddy with its fumes, thickened with clouds. Low clouds, drooping at the edges like felt sailed over the woods and rain leapt from them, warm, smelling of soil and sweat, and washing the last of the black armor-plating of ice from the earth.”
― Boris Pasternak

“The story of two dreams is a coincidence, a line drawn by chance, like the shapes of lions or horses that are sometimes formed by clouds.”
― Jorge Luis Borges

“hark, now hear the sailors cry,
smell the sea, and feel the sky
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic…”
― Van Morrison
