TO CAPTURE THE BEST
We see in a sprinter that every second supposes crucial for a win or lose. Likewise, I, too, felt a level of disappointment when I missed the orange grandeur of sunrise in a matter of minutes just because I couldn’t ready my camera gear at the right moment.
I rushed, I ran, I gasped for breath, but luck didn’t favour me and I missed the spectacle. My preparation was to catch the trim and crisp sunrise across the vast sand-bed of River Krishna. It has been what I kept planning for two weeks.
It took over an hour to trudge across the damp sandy riverside to reach the vantage point to position the kit to catch the mighty Sun when it spills its first paint of rays. And it isn’t an easy attempt. I have to go into preparation and packing mode as early as four in the morning. I made it to the place, but, dear me, the day broke into a spell of cloudiness that I could click through the Sun for less than a minute. Though briefly disappointed, I could gladly catch other visual bounties for which I felt gratified – by vibrant, clear, and enchanting frames.
