A storm on the western horizon of Lhaviyani Atoll looms and casts huge storm clouds and a gloomy scene over this sliver of sand. This sand bar with its little beach hut, off Komandoo Island is reserved for tourists who want that Robinson Crusoe experience. The backlit voluminous clouds are reflected in the otherwise turquoise water.

Hard to believe it was pouring rain when I set out to take this photo. Oddly the rain was care of one big cloud hanging over Kuredu Island, the eastern horizon and the waters of the Lhaviyani Atoll were clear. The rain doesn’t last long in the Maldives.

A serene sunrise over Kuredu and the Lhaviyani Atoll. Shortly after taking this, I saw a green sea turtle playing on the surface about 50m off shore, as it was, there were two - so I jumped in and joined them.
