I was traveling through the backwaters of Kerala, initially, the weather was a bit disappointing as it was drizzling outside but as time passed I witnessed the high dynamicity of Kerala's weather, after all, it's called "The God's Own Country" and truly it is. I was shocked to see the changing sky. The clouds came in and Sun played along with it, it was like God was giving me a treat of a lifetime. Amidst that beautiful scene, I saw a couple with a baby witnessing the same grandeur of nature. I tried to seize the moment through my lenses and this is what I came up with.  

I call this image "Lawless Solitude"

Thank you very much :)

hehe, it is lawless because I interpreted the scene somewhat like this:  Nature doesn't have any law, it doesn't follow any rules, it was raining when I started my journey to the place and I had lost all hopes to see a sunset, and out of nowhere when I reached the location the cloud cleared on the further end and the beautiful golden light appeared. It felt pure bliss, and while I saw this couple witnessing the scene I remembered William Wordsworth's famous poem "The Solitary Reaper". Together all these circumstances made me choose this title - LAWLESS SOLITUDE  :)
