Taking a Stroll

Nature’s Canvas

Nujum H, New Delhi
“This was shot at Thirumullavaram beach during my recent visit to Kerala. I went to the beach to make pictures of the sunset.

In Isolation

Alan Varghese, Thiruvananthapuram
“One early winter morning near Vellayani Lake in Thiruvananthapuram, the dense mist made it difficult to photograph the sunrise. Though the sunrise was not visible, the sunrays seeped through the mist and rendered an orangish glow to it. That was when I saw this lotus picker looking for lotus buds in the middle of the lake.”

A Burst of Colour

Aman Dhingra, New Delhi
“This was from my visit to Damdama Lake in Gurgaon, Haryana. After shooting the sunset, I was about to go back home. Suddenly, I saw this old hut. A low angle helped emphasise the various colours in the sky.”
