It was a sunny evening at the beach. Although it was close to 5 pm, the sun was still shining brightly. The challenge here was to get the exposure right since I was directing the camera at the sun.
Location is Kalamb beach near Vasai in Maharashtra. Kalamb is also not far from Nallasopara station on Western Railway. It is a beautiful beach. The sand here has a grey colour, may be because of the minerals in it. The beach is very wide at low tide, but the water comes in a quite a bit when the tide is high.
I used a high shutter speed of 1/4000 sec. to get the exposure right. The active focal point was on the boat so that it retained details and was not just a silhouette. I used evaluative metering in RAW format. Flash was not fired.
