Taken just after sunset – my wife joined me to enjoy the sunset and then patiently waited while I took pics. Who else but she can stand still for the 20 secs it took for this exposure …… talking on the phone and blissfully unaware that she was now ‘the foreground interest’.

Nikon D80
Sigma 10-20 @ 14mm
f/9.5 at 20 secs ISO 100, WB Cloudy
HiTech 3 Stop GND Soft Edge Filter
Manfrotto 055XProB with 488RC2 head
Location: Devbagh, North Karnataka, India

How do I begin to tell you how lucky I am
to have you in my life?
You’re my best friend in the good times
and my rock in times of sorrow.
You made this year and every year
the best one of my life.

    Wow this is just serenely beautiful in every way Vikram, but what I love most is the title!! Hope you have an awesome Christmas and New Years my friend, all the best!! xoxo

  • Thank you so much my dear friend!! I have plenty other pics from this place that I will be uploading – this one though is for her (for bearing with my getting out at 5:30 AM to get sunrises and staying out till well after it got dark to get sunsets – WHILE on holiday!).
    Have a great XMas and a fab New Year too!!
