How did I picture this:
It was my friend Amit, who called to capture this lovely frame as my theme on this tour was Hampi & People. There was not enough light as the sun was setting. You can see orangish rays of light falling on the frame in this picture. A man sitting with a beautiful backdrop. Finally, I am happy that I was able to capture and present it to you all.
It was indeed a beautiful evening followed by a night photography. A day to cherish in the years ahead.
