We’re always hearing about the deep blue ocean, but, as we recently discovered there’s a place where the blue in the shallow water out shines the deepest depths of any ocean. Our ‘workation’ to Ayada Maldives introduced us to a new type of blue. One which, every day you cannot believe that something can be so naturally intense, bright and saturated.

In an upcoming post we’re going to explore what makes water so blue and why it varies so, but for now, just enjoy some of our shots from The Maldives and the most spectacular shallow blue we’ve ever seen.

*Note – this post is tagged both Asia Pacific and Africa – mainly because at the time of writing i, for the life me couldn’t figure out where the Maldives should sit!
