My Best Landscape Images

I have been practicing nature photography since the year 2010, during this time I have learned a lot and captured some good images. However the lack of transportation has held me back in recent times, working in the field of education has restrained me on several occasions, however these 10 images are my best so far.

Reflection
(C)Mohamed Malik
This image was captured in Haa Dhaal Kulhudufushi, on 17th Nov 2010. It was an extremely sunny day and it was low tide, which created wonderful reflections in the shallow water.
On shore wreckage

MAL_1308
This was taken in my native island Inguraidhoo, I always wanted to capture a picture with this abandoned boat, however I was waiting for the right time. I work up in the morning and saw the sky and went back into my room took my Nikon D7000 + 18-105mm lens and circular polarizer filter and went out to the beach side, after capturing many nice images, I finally came to this location. To darken the sky and to make the colours more visible I used a polarizer filter. 11th September 2012
Inguraidhoo Beach Side

MAL_1505
This is one of the most favourite images till date, the sky was very beautiful and the sun was shining. I created this image using my Nikon D7000 & 18-105mm lens @ F8. To get better colours saturation and contrast I used a polarizer filter.
Boat in the Beach

This image was taken In R. Rasgetheem, to capture this image I took the image from a lower angel which created a much better perspective, I love how this image turned out.
Off To Fishing

Visit To Angolitheem & Vaadhoo
This image was captured during a visit to R. Angolhitheem I only stayed for about an hour, however I was able to get this shot, as they were leaving for fishing. In order to make the sky a bit darker I used a polarizer filter.
The Coral Reef

 

MAL_3639
To make the sea and the corals more visible I had to use the polarizer filter at its maximum setting. However I am very pleased with this image.
Kottaru Raa Atoll, Maldives, Northern Province

MAL_5431
This was taken during a picnic to kottafaru, I loved how this image turned out to be, and in the meantime it was a very very beautiful day with extremely sunny skies and beautiful cloud formations.

This image has again been captured at Kottafaru
The Beach, the Lagoon & the Deep Sea & Islands

MAL_5501

This image has again been captured at Kottafaru
The Garden Reef
Mohamed Malik 2012
This image has been captured while traveling from Dhigali to Inguraidhoo, I asked the person who was captioning the small boat to travel as near as the reef as possible, cause I didn’t want to include any deep sea regions in this image, to make the corals more visible I used a polarizer filter.

At the moment I do not have enough web space to upload HQ images, I will upload as soon as a upgrade my server.
