Evening on The Arabian Sea
Category: Sense of Place
Photo and caption by Jim ODonnell
The old Portuguese Fort Aguada is located just a few miles outside of Panaji, the main town in the Indian state of Goa. I climbed to the top of the lighthouse just before sunset in January 2012 to snap this shot. I saw a number of Brahminy kites passing In front of my shot. At first, I didn’t want them in the picture. Combined, the sunset, the ships on the sea and the kites rounded out the image I wanted and relate the sense of place I’d sought. I used a Nikon D3000 on a tripod with a 300mm Nikkor lens. ISO 100, f/11, 1/400s
Location: Fort Aguada, Goa, India
