• Cloud movement because of long exposure. It was a 2sec exposure
  • I wish I was sitting here in this shot. I think that would've been a much better composition and am sad I missed that opportunity!

There are a lot of firsts with this image.

1. It was the first time that I shot with my new lens "Sigma 10-20mm" and I'm extremely happy with the results.

2. Its the first time in a long while that I actually got up so early for a sunrise. Yep, the lazy me can never get up so early..but I did this time :)

3. Also the first time I took pictures down South of India (except for my hometown, Hyderabad)

What you see is a Pondicherry sunrise and I loved it. I'm disappointed with only one thing here: I wish I was there in this frame, sitting there and enjoying the sunrise. I really missed out on a great opportunity here :(

I got up really early for this and I took my rented bike out to the beach but Pondy has a rocky beach and I didn't find it very appealing so I asked a couple of people on the streets to help me out with a good spot and one really helpful guy asked me to go to a place a few miles on a really dark and muddy road. It was pretty scary to be out alone in the dark and in a new place with not a soul in sight but I still went ahead because I just wanted to get to some place for the sunrise shots and I didn't have much time to think through.

I found this solitary boat there lying around waiting to be released into the sea. The sunrise and the sky were really dramatic and I was happy to get a nicely exposed shot. I think taking the off-the-track route was a great decision and I will keep that in mind in the future as well.

Hope you guys are all doing fine. Have a good week ahead
