Low tide and dawn coincide to make for a peaceful and quiet beach in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
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.
Where I live, flocks of pigeons orbiting around buildings is a common sight. My building, which is one of the oldest buildings in the area, seems to be of particular attraction to the pigeons. Except the wee hours of morning, pigeons can be spotted at almost any time of day. The flurry of activity certainly intensifies at dawn and dusk, when the pigeons seem to be in some kind of hurry.
In this particular photograph, taken at dawn, a large flock of pigeons flies past the building neighbouring mine. The photograph relates to the theme “Early Bird” both symbolically (the photograph was taken early in the morning) and literally (the photograph contains ‘early’ birds).
