I shot this image in March this year. I directed the camera at the sun. I was able to capture the pretty sunlight. The reflections as well as evening shades look nice too. At bottom one-third of the frame, you can see salt pans with salt crystals showing white.
The location is Vasai, on the road to Naigaon. On one side of the road, there is a long stretch of salt pans. When the rains start in June, activity on the salt pans comes to a stop. Work picks up again in October.
Camera is Canon EOS 550D. I used an aperture of f/11 to manage the bright sunlight and also to get a good depth of field. Focal length is 55mm at a shutter speed of 1/80 sec.
