I was riding my Honda Activa last week when I came across the beautiful bougainvillea in bloom. It was on the side of a winding street and the flowers hung over it. I composed the shot in such a way that the bougainvillea took up nearly half the frame. The lady in a bright yellow saree added a spot of colour.
The photo was on Flickr Explore at no. 255 of 1 March. Click here to see the image on my photostream.
I captured the image on a road leading to Naigaon. Although not many people were on the road, there was a surprising amount of vehicular traffic including BMW and Mercedes cars. So I had to wait for a window when the road was clear of cars.
The camera is Canon EOS 550D. The Canon EF-S18-55mm lens was set to 34mm. Shutter speed was 1/60 sec and the ISO at 200.
