Howrah Bridge is busy throughout the day and night. Vehicles are not permitted to stop on the bridge and photography is prohibited. So I had to get down at one end of the bridge and make my way down to the river to take the shot. There is a big flower market there. After crossing it, one comes to the river. A number of men were bathing in the river waters. From this point, I was able to get a good view of the bridge.
Camera Data
I was carrying a Sony DSC-W35 in my pocket and used it for taking the photo. It was a sunny day and I could get a high shutter speed of 1/250 sec at a focal length of 6.3 mm. Aperture was f/7.1.
