Another view on India in misty morning damp.

Inspired by David *Refugee* I remember to have this photo taken on the West Coast of India during my stay home, last summer.
This photo was taken on the beach very early morning and still the morning misty damp is present.

We are here in:
Maharashtra (Marathi: महाराष्ट्र mahārāṣṭra, IPA: /məhaːraːʂʈrə/ , English: Great Nation) is India's 3rd largest state in terms of area and second largest in terms of population after Uttar Pradesh.

It is bordered by the states of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Goa and the Union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli.

The Arabian Sea makes up the state's western coast. Mumbai, India's largest city, is the capital of Maharashtra where as Nagpur serves as the second capital or winter capital of the state.

Maharashtra name appears to have been derived from Maharashtri, in an old form of Prakrit, an ancient Indian language. ( some help of Wikipedia)

Sorry if the info was a bit long but there are members who realy read all :-)

Thank you and bye


Cherish each hour of this day for it can never return.

Well composed. The fog creates that mysterious atmosphere well. Keep on posting the info. I always enjoy it.

Hi Vandana,
Excellent beach view, the man in the distance gives the image real depth. The morning damps gives this picture an intrigue mood. Job well done my dear Vandana!

Hello Vandana!

Nice composition , with the presence of this lonely walker, the misty atmosphere, and breaking waves. Bravo!

Good news:

Wow - I like this one! So well composed, and so much to see! The shoreline and the surf, the boats lined up beneath the trees - and the colours and atmosphere is fantastic.
This is one of my favourites from your gallery - it's beautiful!

Hi Vandana
What a beautiful view here. Super compo and details. The mist has made for a nice mood, and has made for some rich colors on the beach area. The walker adds another nice touch. Very well seen and taken.

Hello Vandana
What a wonderful and precious picture you give us here! I love the soft colors melting the sky and the sea and the white foam shining on the beach... as well as the deep colors on the right in the palm trees and the boats... An excellent shot and gorgeous composition!
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
Best wishes

the bars of sunlight across the sand add a unique texture to this wonderful oceanview landscape

Hi Vandana,
This is so mystical, the colors in the sky are fabulous. Well done and thanks for sharing,

Hi Vandana,

What a lovely composition! I like the lone figure walking on the sand. Great moody lighting & colours!
I'm with John Tulip on this one! (^_^)

Well done

Hello Vandana

This time you uploaded some different picture. This is good shot of nice scenery, lovely composition, great DOF with nice soft colours and lights, Sand, boats and that man is in picture if looking so impressive, good POV.

A peaceful & relaxing beachside scene, with good colour & sharpness. Tfs!

Hello Vandana,
What a beautiful place! You have captured it superbly and just at the right time here. Great composition, spot-on exposure, and nice subdued lighting which helps sustain that early morning atmosphere.

Hi Vandana,

Hi Vandana, there looks like in paradise!
A great capture with hte man on the beach.

Hi Vandana,
How I love early mornings like this. However, never saw so many boats on the beach. By having that man in the picture you really get a sense of how long the walk would be.
Morning light and a bit of damp always provides that mysterious feeling that is filled with promisses of a lovely day to come.

Hi Vandana. If there is one thing I miss most about Western Australia it is the sea mist. A lovely image, perfect POV with excellent detail and soft colours. Nicely framed and presented. You are correct, there are not many who read any of the notes let alone part of them. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘If Only...’

Hi Vandana,
A stunning shot; I love the lavendar/greys in the water and sky as well as the streaks of light on the beach. The bright blue of the boat made me take a closer look, and I can recognize David's inspiration in this work.
All the best,

Hello Vandana,
The colors are very good, and the shadows atmosphere gives the photo a very interesting and nice beach look.You do a good job. Congratulations.

Hello Vandana

I love this shot for it's light and shadow presented in two triangles dividing the picture in two. That silhouette of center makes the picture lively and makes us want to enter and explore the surroundings.
It is strange to see only one person on the beach knowing that India is very populated.


Regards, Sylvain

Hi Vandana,

Beautiful scene, you have have captured the mood perfectly. Very nice composition, with the special touch of the lone figure walking and great DOF.

Hi Vandana,
I think this is a very successful photograph !
I like the POV and the way the generally soft coulors are visually punctuated by the sharp blue from the boats on the right.
Fine texture on the sand.. and generally great photographic quality !

Very well done !
Best regards, Daniel
