My personal favorites - shikha's photography

31 st Dec morning- When I first visited here, I knew I had to come back for the sunrise because the cliff is positioned to glow as the sun rises from behind. So I started early on 31 st Dec to be here before sunrise. The drive itself was about 1.5 hrs to this location. And just around sunrise the pink/red streaks adorned the sky. The cliff and the lighthouse glowed. I crossed the barricade and was right at the edge of another cliff to photograph this !! This was one of those days when everything fell in place. The skies, the water and the radiance. Mesmerizing !

Technical information : This is a single shot from Canon 40D. No merging, no fanciful processing, no advanced editing involved in processing. The picture is pretty much as seen.
