Into the Fog

A group of tourists head through the fog towards the island on Bhimtal Lake
October is generally sunny and pleasant in the Uttarakhand Hills. However, this year the rains have tapered into October and the fog is still rolling into the hills.
This picture is taken in Bhimtal, a picturesque lake nestled among dense jungles of Kumaon. Bhimtal is starting to become a popular destination away from the crowds of Nainital which has traditionally been more popular among the tourists.

Sunrise over Whitefield Bangalore.

First pictures of 2016, taken on the morning of Jan 2nd.

The clouds of Jan 1st had parted giving way to a beautiful morning. Venus (not in this pic) was shining brightly in the South-East. While the low-lying fog gave an aura of spookiness to the low lands, the sky was brightly painted by the rising sun. The imagery lasted only for a few minutes before the rising sun washed away the horizon

Technical details: Canon EOS 550D with Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM.  Focal Length – 70mm, F/5.6, 1/400s, ISO200, 4 picture hand-held Panorama

Sun rises over a marshy lake bed somewhere near Kolar.

Took this picture in Feb of 2015, on the way to Gandikota, Andhra Pradesh on a motorbike. I was crossing this small bridge over a water tank. The tank was pretty much dry with small patches of water left over from last rain. The fog, low lying shrubs, trees and the sun hidden behind the morning fog gave a dream like imagery.

Technical details: Canon G1XMk2.  Focal Length – 62.5mm, F/8, 1/2000s, ISO400
