Photographed it after Sunset on banks of Nethravathi River. Placed my camera on a tripod, framed the scene, set the auto focus to wide and aperture to the smallest f/8 .
Clicked with self timer of 2 sec to negate any camera shake, when pressing the shutter button.
A image or sky reflected on water makes an interesting monochromatic image with tonal variations. Such reflections also add symmetry to an image.

Reflectons in a Well

At Kudupu in the outskirts of Mangalore is this well, nothing special about it, except that I found the water so clear that I could see more that 20 ft under. The trees reflecting on the water and on the left the palm of a coconut tree fallen and lying gracefully underneath the water all adds some kind of serenity to the well.
Photographed with the smallest aperture f/8 that i could to get in all the details ;1.2sec shutter speed.


When I visited my sister-in-law at Bangalore, she made sure I had a banquet. One of the items was this appetizing salad. It was so attractive that I only had to click a snap and got a near perfect photograph. She had no clue of my intentions of blogging this one, but still the near perfect slices and the well placed coriander leaf with a tiny little water droplet on it, still makes my stomach growl with hunger.


St. Patrick Church in Bangalore ; the twilight was just setting in and the sky was in rich royal blue. Dawn and dusk are the best time to shoot blue skies. The sky during winter also has pure blue shades to it. For photographing extremely dark blue, the evening sky after sunset has the best shade. Setting the WB in your camera to tungsten can also help bring out new blue hues.
