Right or Wrong !!!

Flowers in general are always cool to shoot with – they are colorful, attractive and if you are lucky, they would be just stand still, for as long as you want, with a little bit of support from wind :). So when I came across the vibrant lily at Meenmutty Falls Resort , was delighted. This was shot during broad afternoon day light and was surprised the way it turned out. I had always thought that these kind of shots were made within a studio set up. All I did here, was used circular polarizer to make the water, non reflective and dark. Playing a bit with curves and levels, helped lose some of the other unwanted details. What do you think of the result ?

Below is a (so called) Haiku that I wanted to share alongside this shot !

Sometimes when
Every thing looks right & Every thing looks wrong … simultaneously
Look again
There is nothing wrong about the right &
There is nothing right about the wrong !!!

Awesome Sunset @ Veli Beach

Veli is an awesome place, located at the outskirts of Trivandrum . It is a combination of lagoon, ponds, pools and the beach. It is a tourism village located at a place where the lagoon meets the Arabian see. It’s vicinity to the airport make me land here, as I had couple of hours to kill before the flight. Glad I did !

It was nice to take a walk around the lagoon, so vary aptly juxtaposed along the road and railway tracks. The place was so cool even in the afternoon sun. The leisurely stroll on the opposite side leads to the Veli beach – which, to my surprise, is not (yet) spoilt by crowd. Except for a couple here & there and few kids, had the complete beach to myself.

The entire visit was completed with one amazing sunset. Given the weather, it was an unexpected one for the day. The water was kind of Turquoise and graduated towards brown near the shore, taking up the rather brown beach sand color. Probably it was quiet shallow, but i did not give it a try. Its really nice when things just unfold for you to shoot , right :)
