Beachscape, Puri

Posted by
Sugata (Lake Forest, United States) on 5 January 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I took this photo at Puri, Orissa, India. The boat was lying on the beach... the camel is ridden by the tourists. Puri is one of the most important pilgrimage places for the Hindus and draws large crowds every year. Consequently, the beaches are quite dirty all the time. However, Puri also has magnifinent waves which are very good for photographing.
I used a polarizer filter for this shot. This polarizer belongs to my SLR but like the previous shot, I held it in front of my digital point-and-shoot while taking the photo.

SONY DSC-W5 1/500 second F/5.6 ISO 100 8 mm

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
