Hibiscus Beneath a Coconut Tree

The Hibiscus was beautiful. It was in the shade of a coconut tree and had a bright, vibrant colour. I had to catch the exact shade of red in the photo. And the focus and light had to be perfect.

The photo was featured in Flickr Explore on 10 December. Please click here to view my photos in Flickr’s Explore pages.

Hibiscus beneath coconut tree

Location

I came across the Hibiscus in Vasai, a suburb of Mumbai. Many parts of Vasai  fall under coastal regulation zone and are out of bounds for development.

Camera Info

I used my Sony Xperia ZR camera. It focuses really close and its small lens and sensor give more depth of field than a large camera. The big screen of Sony Xperia ZR is easier to see than the viewfinder of a camera.

Radiance After Sunset

There was a nice warm glow in the sky. The colours were wonderful and subtle. There were low clouds which had taken on a pink colour from the light radiated by the sun. The waters in the fields were tinted by the sky.
