Sadhu at sunset, Dwarka, Gujarat

This Sadhu was from Manali, miles away from Gujarat up in the mountains, visiting the holy city of Dwarka.

 

I wanted a portrait with the deep sky colours just before the daylight vanished completely. First I tried with the flash, but with nothing to bounce it off, and no assistants at hand, armed with a nice diffuser, I soon gave up. There was some street lighting not too far away, so I managed to get this with available light at ISO 4000. Bit tight on the elbow, but at least I didn't chop it off.
