A view of the spectacular Yarada beach near Vizag town in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It is around 10-12 kms. away from the city. One of the lesser known beaches of Vizag so this is not as crowded as the other popular beaches of Vizag. This shot was taken just after the monsoon season on a day when a cyclone was making landfall around 100 kms. away from Vizag.
Even under normal conditions swimming is not advisable because of strong sea currents, underwater rocks and big waves. Here you have a few daredevils ready to take on the sea at its choppiest best.
Thanks for having a look.

A very dynamic scene with the breakers rushing in. Perfectly exposed to capture the motion of the incoming waves. The lads messing about on the beach enliven the scene and offer a good sense of scale.

what a great place to have a swim! I like how you captured the waves - they are full of dynamism and the group of people on the beach give us sense of proportion. Great colors and well managed light.
Thanks for sharing

I would certainly stay way from such waves but you were lucky to find these guys, who provided you with an excellent composition. The several diagonals, the obvious power of the waves and the movements of the young men all create a very dynamic composition. The colours and clarity of the shot are also first class.

now that is a beach, looks wonderful. You have captured the motion and excitement of playing in the surf just perfectly. Idyllic!
Enjoy the weekend - B.

No matter the warning, I guess people could never stay away from a beach as beautiful as this! There is an awesome sense of power from those crashing waves, but there is also an incredible sense of fun from the people in the scene, whose body language indicated they are having a good time indeed.
I love the range of colors throughout this too, the aqua and blue and green of the sea, then against that the terracotta sand in the lower left and the vague tints of purple near the water.
Beautiful composition and result.
All the best

I've always been impressed by the waves in India, wherever I was
Besides the fact it's not the custom in the sub continent to have sea bath, the violence of the sea is likely another reason
Best regards, have a nice day

I have been to this beach quite a few times and in my opinion it is one of the best in Vizag. Swimming is dangerous of course as it is in all of Vizag's beaches and casualties, mostly students, are not rare.
You captured the full force and power of the waves and with excellent colour and clarity. The group of people though indulging in dangerous pleasure make the picture interesting.
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend
PaulVDV (26650) 2014-03-22 11:56
Perhaps these huge waves are a magnet for surfers. But probably the underwater rocks make it also for them too dangerous.
Looking at this picture, I can hear the sound of the oncoming waves.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Subho,great timing and great zoom to caught this big wave in the best way,the perspective is truly impressive and beautiful,very good details and colors too,i like it!Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

The surf is frozen beautifully in this photo. The presence of the people adds a sense of scale. It must be a great beach to jump the waves.
PS. To answer your question, according to Montreaux Convention that regulates traffic through the Turkish Straits, military vessels may not fly their own flags during their transit from the Dardanelles to the Black Sea (and vice versa) but must only fly the Turkish flag.

The tides are excellent capture. The path inside the sea is interesting. Very good view of the beach. I like it.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful beach, curious view.

I like water effect.
Have a nice afternoon
subhendu_bagchi (26083) 2014-03-23 2:59
wow, what a charming beach scene here! I like how you composed it with those people on water with such a spectacular shore line at back. Interesting one with good photo quality. Excellent one. Tfs.
dip (23888) 2014-03-23 4:54
a wonderful scene full of dynamism,excellent captured,
I like the contrasts of colors and also the whole composition here,
good timing as well,
chrislo (4155) 2014-03-23 5:52
The strong surf here is an impressive spectacle to look at, and you've captured this in a brilliant way. The power of the waves crashing on the shoreline makes for an interesting dynamics in this setting. I like the presence of the rocky jetty over in the distance and the way the water fills the entire foreground. The four heroes having fun add a nice touch of interest and vitality to the scene. A wonderfully expressive shot in a well chosen format.

Quelle prise magnifique des vagues au moment le plus fort, la lumière et les couleurs sont vraiment belles, les vagues sont un des plaisirs pour ces jeunes, belle composition

I like the diagonal composition and presentation this beach. Very nice place. Amazing big waves. Fine caught moment, good shot.
Have a nice evening.
danos (94194) 2014-03-24 0:56
very nice the view of this truly beautiful and effective sandy beach with the presentation of these native young men to enjoy with the huge waves.I like the excellent presentation as the charmy of the timing.
adramad (43103) 2014-03-24 8:57
An ideal composition, which has captured masterfully
with that stormy sea, in a moment with beautiful waves, we can see at the moment of breaking on the beach, children playing with them, giving a lovely touch, and conveys a sense of enjoyment and relaxation.
An image to enjoy, with its beautiful colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Happy start to the week.
pierrefonds (63290) 2014-03-25 18:24
There are two things that you have captured well, the power of the waves and the activities at the beach. The distance between the beach and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The light has a good effect on the colours. Have a nice day.
Gigidusud (19855) 2014-03-26 10:35
Beautiful beach scene with the movement of waves well captured. Splendid the pink tones on the sand. A dynamic image, I like it!
