Mandarmani, approx 183 km from kolkata has fast grown into a regular weekend escapades from the madding city crowds.
I was there with my wife a few days back.
The distinctive feature of Mandarmoni is its beach .. arguably the best drivable beach in SE Asia, as claimed by a few people.
We drove along the beach for miles and had a great time chasing the red crabs.
This shot was taken during sundown. It was the season of Monsoon and the sky was cloudy ... it was all light n shade. Hope u all like it.

I like the light which enhances the clouds in the sky and the contrast with the silhouettes of the palms surrounding the beach,.The biker adds dynamism to the compo. Good pov.

Very nice picture...like how you used the ambient light, the sun from behind the clouds. The bicycle acts as a good focal point amidst the boats. The trees seems to indicate high wind speed. Like the subtle reflection in the wet sand! Good work Samrat!

it is a superbly captured shot with the boats on beach and the magnificent sky at top. Reflection added a level to it. Nice composition where the bicycle acts as a nice focal point as Angshu said. Great exposer and original colours. Very well done. Tfs.
