Surfing @ Mahabalipuram, India
Surfing is an recreational sport for the bold and the adventurous. India with its 3000km odd coastline is a dream destination for most people who love water sports like rafting, scuba diving and sea surfing. Surfing basically involves riding your surf board on the crest of the wave. Attention must be paid to safety measures at all times. Surfers always wear a leash or tie a leg rope that is attached to the surf board. Proper clothing is required to keep allergies at abeyance and there are precautions to be followed while falling of the surf board to protecting the ears and head from injury. Photographing Surfers is a challenge since they are constantly moving at a good speed and lighting needs to be perfect to get the best details out of the click. Here excellent use of back lighting has enhanced the freeze beautifully.
