Made at Palolem while strolling the beach while the sun was setting. Last time i had been here some years back, i had clicked a similar shot. But it was missing the human element. Thought of revisiting that composition with this addition. Lucky for me that the impressions on the sandbed were from the couple and were undisturbed by the waves.
Was just going through my old photographs and i cringe at some of the mistakes i made. I mean there are some photographs which i could’ve improved upon on the spot. But then like the latest Aamir Khan ad goes ‘…Doosro ki galtiyon se kya seekhna, make your own mistakes yaar’, im really glad that i made those mistakes. It really helps me in improving upon my photography in a major way. This was one such photograph where i could’ve easily avoided the part of the tree that enters in the upper right.
I was strolling beside the beach, in South Goa and there was a huge wall formed by the palm trees which blocked the beach in a major way. Luckily we came across this opening, which gave a really charming view of the beach. The scene also had a human element, the cyclist. So before the cyclist went outta the frame, i captured the scene, not keeping in mind that i was introducing the unwanted trunk of the tree as well.
