    Holy crap! Looks like something out of this world. Lovely. I hope you didn't spend too much time with your camera when you two were away for your honeymoon. I find my self doing that too often whenever I go away with my girlfriend - sometimes she just wants throw that god damn thing under a bus.

    I like the three palm trees adding a wind-blown element to this elegant image.

    Happy First Christmas Together!

    Yet again a place that I would rather be than where I am right now :-)

    Congratulations to both of you. I prefer this shot to the one on the hotel's own website. I hope you had a good time away - Maldives is just the place to go for a honeymoon :D We wish you all the best for 2011, and the future.

    Haha. I used to work for the sea plane company that flew people from Male to the other island resorts. We know the owners of this resort and were there a few times before construction was finished. Beautiful island, the reef surrounding it is fantastic. Great resort and even better owners!

    Kind of uncanny that I have you in my google reader and this popped up!
