Photo of the Day (12/17/2006)

Here’s a photo of a place that might not be with us much longer. According to some reports and research, the Maldives might someday disappear beneath the ocean waves due to rising sea levels and global warming. Bad news, especially for Maldivians. I understand, actually, that the diving in the Maldives is fantastic, and this photo from YXO seems to bear that out. Just look at the lovely turquoise water.
