I took this shot from my hotel's balcony at Digha.. You can see market near the beach also you can see the waves at the top of this frame.. During the trip i made two mistakes- 1. I forgot to take my tele lens 2. I forgot battery charger.. Thats why I am unable to show you good photos.. I don't know you like it or not..
Dighais most popular sea beach and tourist spot of West Bengal situated at only 187 km away from from Kolkata and well connected with Kolkata. Digha has a low gradient with a shallow sand beach and known as the 'Brighton of the East'. Digha is a perfect holiday beach of Bay of Bengal.
The Digha market is open at low tide.
Curios made of sea-shell, Shell jewellery, moderate varieties of reputed Madur of Midnapore (hand-woven mat made of weeds) in colourful designs, Cottage crafts of Digha and Midnapur are available at the beach and at other outlets in town.

I donīt know how others,but I like it!Even without tele lens you were able to capture the essence of the scene and its lively and bustling character.And as much as the scene itself I like the way you processed it- enjoy nice balance between moody light and strong colors.
Have a nice weekend

You got a nice view from your hotel room! Great busy urban scene filled with the colors of daily life and its people. The sea looks quite powerful and close to the market!
Have a nice weekend.

hello dear, this is a nice documentary of the busy lanes of old Digha. I can remember the gathering people in this lane and in the sea side road just after Durga puja. You got a nice one (though a bit dark) placing the see in the upper part of the frame. Nice frame. Tfs.

People in colorful blouses gave a strong vivid effect to this pic., Indrasish.
POV from the hotel window is superb, the sea on the far side as mentioned and the many huts are perfect framing for the scene. Though, as I already wrote, the human factor is what made this image so unique.
Cheers, and have a nice week ahead,

This must be early in a market day as it looks like merchants are just setting up their stores. Great pov and it has good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

well, at least this lens has the capability of zooming out to 135mm!
but forgetting the battery charger is a killer!!
its happened to all of us i'm sure.
as Noel has pointed out, a very cool looking urban scene, lots to keep our eyes busy.
there's a real ruggedness to this area that i like.
good shot overall with the tight cropping
