It was 3 AM in the morning when I decided to take a short road trip to Covelong/Kovalam, a fishing village right next to the Taj Vivanta Fisherman’s Cove, a lovely resort in itself. As someone who loves beaches, I reached Kovalam beach at 5:30 AM, just few minutes before the sunrise and when the fishermen were readying their boats for the daily catch. The beach’s shore is rocky in parts with fishing boats lining a good stretch of beach and of-course the village.
It is also a place for surf boarding enthusiasts and wind surfing! (there are regular classes apparently). The beach also has some old broken down amusement rides, which add character to the place (pictures of the rides in the next post!) Click on images below to expand –
Watching a sunset in Rajasthan’s many picturesque locations is something every traveler has to do. There is something extremely beautiful about these sunsets that I have never experienced anywhere else in my limited travels. Perhaps, it is the setting – large rustic forts, calm lakes, palaces, arid deserts or even the architecture of the cities in itself. The sunset just enhances the overall experience.

This was my very first attempt at time lapse photography. Digital Photography School was a great resource to understand how it works – so i chose a lovely Sunday evening to capture the moving clouds and the setting sun (which unfortunately is behind clouds), that gave way to rays cutting through the clouds!
How i did it:
Photo type: RAW
Focal Length: 18mm
Photo Interval: 10 seconds
Software: Adobe Lightroom, LRTimeLapse, Adobe Premiere Pro
Such amazing fun, i’m looking forward to capturing better time lapse subjects and learning tips to make the workflow even more effective!
