Day’s Catch

The train journey from Mangalore to Kerala is scenic. The rail tracks run  close to Arabian Sea. Not far from the railway station in Kasaragod, there is a small fishing jetty. It has a landing dock that connects to a shed with red roof.

The jetty is in a bay and wave movements are less. The white bridge stands out against the blue waters. I had shot this image on a January morning. There were no clouds in the sky. The sea appears to blend with the sky.

The shutter speed was 1/250 sec. Aperture was at f/9 to get a good depth of field.

Your digital SLR camera can capture the mystery and grandeur of landscape photography. The following tips can help you to produce attractive landscape pictures.

Depth of Field

You will use the camera either in manual mode or aperture priority mode. To bring most of the scene into focus, aperture has to be kept small so that the depth of field is big.  It is best to keep the f/stop between f/8 and f/11. If the f/stop is higher than f/11, you could see some loss of sharpness.
