Bird’s-eye view of the Garland of Islands

Here’s a small photostory from a bird’s perspective of the magical tropical island nation of Maldives. Through these aerial images I feel you can understand best how the country got its name – “Maldives” most likely derives from the Tamil words Maalai (garland / necklace) and Theevu (island) – (Maala Divaina, ‘Necklace Islands’).
