I don’t know why the Ministry of Defence doesn’t share pictures like these in a timely manner. Just look at these beauties. This is part of a set taken when Sandgayak-class survey vessel INS Nirdeshak conducted a hydrographic survey of Maldives in November 2007 — six months ago! Didn’t get a whiff of these pix at the time, and now found them unpublicised and buried on the rarely-visited Navy Hydrography site. The last one is from the aerial survey that the team undertook before embarking on the task. Anyway, hopefully more people will see these photos now that they’re up here.
