Sunset near Siuri, West Bengal

These shots were taken on our way back from Tarapith temple to Siuri, where we halted for night. Vast stretches of vacant land on either side of road and Sun was nearing its touchdown point, we paused to take a few pictures. Even when I was framing the scene I was not happy with the ‘not so exciting’ elements in it. This was taken in ‘landscape’ mode.

After taking few pics I decided to change the settings of the camera and got this dramatic shot! You like it?
