Sreekumar Krishnan said, “While driving out of Bangalore for a wedding shoot in Chittor, I saw the statue of Lord Ram coming up against a beautiful evening sky. Not wanting to let go off the moment, I stopped the car and reached out for my iPhone. I knew the sun would throw up the rays through the clouds any moment and waited for that to shoot this beautiful composition. It was majestic and awesome to see the moment revealing itself!”
