I took this shot today 6'O clock in Shankarpur Beach near Digha, West Bengal.. I came here with my brother Yesterday Night.. You can see the Rough Sea Waves and the
the boy is walking lonely..
About Shankarpur Beach:-
Shankarpur is a virgin beach town located 14 km east of Digha in West Bengal. It is also a regular fishing harbor. The mornings are cool, when fishermen can be seen hauling their huge nets out of the sea. The morning sun reflecting on the sea waves in the east, and the local fishboats on the coast offer excellent photographic opportunities
Shankarpur contains a number of temples. It is located in the flat alluvial plain which forms part of the Kosi River basin, which makes the land very fertile. The area suffers from periodical flooding; in 1984, the flooding caused significant loss of life and property.
Located in the Purba (East) Medinipur District of the state of West Bengal, Shankarpur is a beach destination along the Digha-Contai Road which is fast gaining popularity. It is at a distance of about 185 km from the capital city Kolkata, and about 14 km from the famous beach town Digha.
Hope you will like it..
Thanks for your visit..

Your photograph has a wild loneliness, created by the rough waves, the ominous sky and the mood of the focal figure. There is a lovely presentation of contrasting textures, the smooth, wet sand, the foaming, crashing waves and the swirling clouds.
My warm regards,

A thread of light over the rough sea, divided between the dramatic cloudy sky aloft, and the wet sand on foreground. Silhouettes of the people on the pier and beach well collected, and added a good scale on.
Fine photo, good contrast of blue/grey and brown.

so you are in a trip these days. Bhalo ghurchho tow? Bristi nei? Anyway this is a nice image. A bit dark but worth seeing. The wide presentation provide nice sense of the vastness of the nature. A nicely composed shot. Tfs.

the threatening heavy sky combined with the turbulent sea give the shot a lovely mood which is heightened by the stooped gait of the man as he trudges from the beach.
Best regards Les.

My friend,I must say you know how to create unique mood in your photos.
The lonely person in the FG against so stormy and dangerous looking sky and the sea makes your composition spectacular!Light management as well as overall quality and framing are superb and definitely contribute to so successful perception of your composition!
Have a nice day

una immagine un po'cupa, che perņ appare molto interessante per il soggetto e per la bella atmosfera che dipinge molto bene una situazione particolarmente difficile da fotografare per il forte contrasto tra luce ed ombra.
Molto bella la composizione.
Interessanti anche le note che l'accompagnano.
Ciao e buona serata

A very impressive photo with highlights standing out against a dark and mostly gloomy setting. The walking figure is well placed in the composition, and there is terrific detail in those swirling clouds. I do wish you had uploaded a larger image, though! Thanks for the good note.

Great sense of mood and dram between the image and your chosen title. The dark and light aspects work well together, and the man on the beach does portray a sense of solitude. Nicely done.

Heavy clouds in the sky, a landscape of desolation

With the storm brewing over the sea I don't think I'd be walking on the seashore but nice capture of the event with good lighting and nice details. I like the dim lighting. Well done, tfs.

here we have very particular mood, also the light is very special and you managed very well, i like also the tones almost drammatic...very good work my friend...

this is a very particular image, artistic and expressive, with bold, dark and moody tones that evoke introversion and drama. The story is told by a handful of silhouettes in this vast, agitated and heavy environment. Depth, perspective and scale work most effectively. I like very much the luminosity of the rough sea and the impression of suggestive movement in the sea and skyscape, stunningly counterbalanced by the decisive stride of the lonely figure on the beach. Wonderful work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,
