This lonely boatman was rowing his boat at the majestic Osman Sagar Lake in Hyderabad on a bright sunny day. Located on the outskirts of Hyderabad, this is a huge lake with an area of 46km², providing water supply to the city of Hyderabad. It is a very popular tourist spot in the city with many locals thronging the area on the weekends and sunset time, and especially on the rainy days when the grandeur is at its peak.
Bright light created the silhouette of the boat and the boatman, which challenged the pattern of the huge expanse of the lake. It seemed as if he was the sole occupant of the lake, or let me say the king of the land (rather water). It looked very simple and minimalist to me when i clicked this shot.
