A walk along the Kolamb Cliff - CAK10

When my Homestay host Mr. Keluskar suggested that we go for a walk along a cliff on the Kolamb shore I readily agreed and grabbed my camera kit and set off. We went on to the cliff leaving Kolamb beach behind. It was a vast plateau with a trail leading to a nearby fishing village. It was late in the evening and the fisermen had moored their boats persumably returned to their homes. Some of the boats were grounded - may be because they were no more Sea-worthy. While on our return journey Mr. Keluskar pointed out the interesting cloud formations that was constantly changing shape above the sea. It was nearing sunset time and I wanted to hurry back to Kolamb beach to capture the sun sinking over the waves. I hoped to get some good shots.. Mr; Keluskar was very patient while I ran over all the beach in an effort to shoot as much as possiblle before the available light fades away.. and I do not prefer flash photography at all since they kind of flatten out the picture... When shooting at beaches I tend to include a large part of the sky if it has interesting cloud patterns... and I fiddle around a lot with the f-stops,aperture and speed controls to get the effect I want... If after shooting 100s of snaps if I get at least one shot right I get elated..
