“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”


- Oscar Wilde


Each time I wake up early in the morning to start my photography journey, everyone around me express their surprise. They think I am crazy to give up my lovely sleep for taking some "stupid" pictures. One of them even told me "Would you rather not be peacefully asleep?"


For me my photography is like a meditative practice. As I try and relate with my subject all other distractions and worries shut off, and it brings a deep sense of calmness.


This is especially so when the subject is the early morning sun. Often there is not many people around at this time. Also the magic of the light at this time keeps those awake, in rapt attention.


It was such a morning, when I went out to take this image. It was dark when I arrived at the beach to capture dawn. As I found this scenario, I positioned myself a bit futher away from the beach, tried to frame this "Still Morning".


As usual, the angel of luck sent another crow my way, who perched silently on the boat.
