Green Sea from Ross Island

Green Sea from Ross Island
I haven't been to picturesque coastal places outside India but owing to the greatness of Internet I've seen so many popular beaches abroad. I used to miss the greenish blue shade of crystal clear sea water till I visited Andaman. Once I explored Andaman I lost my longing for foreign seashores as it offered me everything I could dream of, oh off course except the covert prayer that beaches of Goa did answer. This shot was taken from Ross Island, a member of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, a tourist destination 2 kilometers east of Port Blair, under the authority of Indian Navy and easily accessible by boats from the Rajiv Gandhi Water Sports Complex of Port Blair. Dead tree trunk lying over the sand usually makes up for the lack of primary subject or a rich foreground in the frame. The coconut trunk played the savior in this photo despite the over-exposure by the midday sun.

  1. Still the water is not green and transparent enough. :/

    1. Sorry Pankti I couldn't present you in this photo the greenishness you were looking for... it was really green but you can't infer that due to the washed out effect of the overhead sun! Not to worry, I'll show you greener sea from Andaman in subsequent photo blogs. Yes, it was not at all crystal clear in this beach... you won't get such transparency everywhere in Andaman but off course there are many places to offer you a clear sea :-)
