Nainital, Uttarakhand, India.
Description

Nainital is a hill station in Uttarakhand, India. The weather is often cold and miserable, even in summer. It rains a lot. I was wandering around the outskirts of the town when I came across these old wooden boats. Initially I was attracted to the atmosphere of the scene – there was a soft rain, and behind the clouds were moving slowly over the hills.The scene worked in colour, but in the post-processing stage I also know that it would come out beautifully in monochrome.

I moved in close to create a simple composition and texture, the dominant elements of the photo. Another benefit of moving in close and using a wide aperture was that the background went out of focus, eliminating potential distractions.
