I love capturing sunsets on beaches. I also love just walking for hours by the shore, letting the sea water play footsie. On one trips i found my cousin also indulging in these activities, so i captured him while he was trying to have some kinda conversation with the waves lappin at his feet. He was blissfully unaware of him being photographed. I had a wonderful time capturing a human element against the background of the vast sky and sea. Indulged more in diagonal shots as i feel the normal rectangular frame gets boring after a while. A little experimenting never hurt anyone:)
The occassion was a family trip to a beach resort near Mumbai. My cousin was walking along the shore when i captured his silhouette. I love the sunsets on any beaches. I remember when i was in Goa in 2006 i used to be at the beach especially to capture the sunset, even though everyday the clouds used to block the sun. But the changing hues in the sky and their reflecations on the great Arabian Sea keep me glued to the shore. I guess being a Mumbaikar, one automatically falls in love with the sea.
Tried to capture as much warmth in this photograph as i could. The sea acts as a lovely mirror reflecting the mood in the sky.
