Witnessing the sun rise over the ocean is a rewarding experience. As the angle of the light shifts, the sand and water transform – the sand changes from orange to a pale white with increasing daylight, while the water turns from turquoise to blue. The richness of colours at dawn (something photographers attribute to the ‘golden hour‘) are captured in this photograph.
A gloomy day in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands transforms the sea and sky from their typical vibrant blue colour to a dreary grey.

The moon rising over a calm ocean can be quite a sight, as I found out during my trip to the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Sea and sky are separated by a thin strip of land in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands of India.
Beaches, such as this one in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands of India, are probably the best places to experience a sunrise or sunset, with the horizon completely free of obstructions and the sun’s rays reflecting off the ocean.
Hohensalzburg Castle in Salzburg, Austria, offers a view of the old town of Salzburg from one side, and a beautiful Alpine landscape on the other.
Driving between Vienna and Salzburg, one gets to observe a change in the Austrian landscape from open, relatively flat plains to the rolling hills of the Austrian Alps. One of the most popular stopping-points along this route is the picturesque village of Hallstatt, somewhere around which this photograph was taken. And with landscapes like this one surrounding the village, it’s not difficult to see why it is such a popular tourist destination!
