Summer Solstice

View Large On Black

Yesterday was the longest day, or so we were told. 2012 being a leap year June 20th was the summer solstice. I planned a sunset shoot in Niarbyl, in celebration of summer, sun and my newly born son who has been named after sun (in Sanskrit)! As luck would have it I was greeted with overcast sky. But my patience paid off at the last moment when a slice of sun appeared at 21:55 hours. Those golden rays looked brilliant against the dark blue of sky and sea.


Shot taken with Canon 5D mkII, 17-40 L Canon@24mm, f/16, exposure-30seconds, ISO-100, Sigma 105 mm CPL, Lee 0.9 GND.
