Southern India 2019 – 12

And so, suddenly, it’s our last day in India. We’re taking the day in a leisurely manner and after a lazy breakfast we went down to the beach again. I don’t usually do special effects type things with the camera but this one has a panorama setting so here’s a 180 degree view of the…
