Gnarled Tree

Share This Article

My latest photo on Flickr made it to Explore. Its rank in Flickr Explore is no. 33 as of 13 June 2014. The choice that I had to make when I shot this image was whether I should use a narrow aperture or a high shutter speed. I had to make the decision because  sun was very bright. I chose to go with a high shutter speed as that gave the right feel to the picture.

The location is Vasai where I saw this old tree near a salt pan. There were no leaves on the tree and the silhouette was intriguing.
