Dawn

Photograph of Boat at Dawn

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.

Motion Blur

In photography, most situations call for holding the camera as steady as possible. Under certain circumstances, however, this unwritten rule is broken. For example, in the above photograph, motion has been captured by moving the camera horizontally along the direction of motion of the motorcycle.

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.

The Cellular Jail in Port Blair, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India, has a long and eventful past. Several Indian freedom fighters were imprisoned here by the British, and the harsh conditions faced by inmates here earned the prison notoriety and the name Kala Pani (literally ‘Death Water’). Inmates here were housed in small individual cells (hence the name Cellular Jail), that were lined along corridors such as the one pictured. In the photograph, the cells are to the left, while the right is open.
