Perfect Sunset at Bible Rock

The Bible Rock is one of the prettiest sight you will see on Kandy Road when you get closer towards Kadugannawa. I was passing by and was awestruck by the most beautiful sunsets I have seen in a while. I had packed my Canon 60D and the Tripod was just lying on my car boot. The end result was just amazing. It’s Avurudu (New Year) season, so there were fireworks all around. Can you spot it in the photo?

Nawam Maha Perahera

To be honest I haven’t been to a Perahera before. I have seen few mini Peraheras while passing by but finally I decided to go and see a Perahera for the sole purpose of capturing some photos. I wasn’t sure whether I will be able to roam freely to get good angles but to my surprise I was able to find a good spot and capture  some great moments. Read More >>

Happy New Year 2015

Wishing you all a Happy New Year, 2015! Managed to capture this during the celebrations at Galle Face, something I visioned for a long time. Gotta admit that it’s not the best photograph, but I would blame that on the lack of Fireworks proportionate to the Twin Towers. But hey, I’m not complaining. All the best for the New Year!

Arcade Independence Square at dusk

I have a great interest in capturing urban night shots. I crave for light trails and well lit buildings. Ever since the Arcade Independence Square was opened I was trying my best to get a good capture but couldn’t make it until last week. It was after sunset and the timing was perfect to capture the sky mixed with purple and pink colour.

Floating Market at Sunset

The newly opened Floating Market in Pettah is really a great attraction for the people in Colombo. While I was passing by, I managed to capture this beatiful sunset over the Floating Market with it’s reflection over Beira Lake.

Wellawatte Beach at dusk

Wellawatte Beach in Colombo is a great place to spend your evening. It has a very lengthy beach strip occupied by people doing various sporting activities, joggers and families who want spend their evening. Random guys fishing with their fishing rods is a sight you won’t miss if you go there. Thankfully I was able to capture this with the mixture of the lovely sunsets we have been having in Colombo in the recent weeks. Read More >>
