Low tide and dawn coincide to make for a peaceful and quiet beach in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
Deep blue skies, turquoise water and yellow sand at a beach in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in India.
On a good day, visibility on and around tropical islands can be several tens of kilometres. Coming from a city where such clarity can only be dreamt of, scenes like these in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands were certainly a sight for sore eyes.
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.
