Green Grass
After more than two months of rains in Mumbai and the rest of India, the wetlands of Vasai have fresh growth of grass. The fields are full of water which would recede in the coming months.

The sky was overcast when I took the shot. There was a slight drizzle and my Tamrac 5371 photo backpack shielded the camera from rain.

I set the aperture was at f/8 to get a good depth of field and sharpness. Focal length was 39 mm. See the photo on my flickr page.

Many parts of Vasai have vast open areas. Eighty percent of total rainfall is experienced during June to October. Average annual rainfall is 2000–2500 mm and humidity is 61-86%, making it a humid-perhumid zone. The driest days are in winter while the wettest days are experienced in July. As per the 2011 census, Vasai-Virar is the fifth largest city in Maharashtra.[

This is another image of the vast open areas of Vasai. The wetlands are covered with greenery. Mangroves grow in many parts of Vasai. This acts as a natural drainage area for rain water. Many different species of birds can be found here. Pink Flamingos come to feed on blue-green algae, brine shrimp and molluscs in the months of November to March.

I shot this photo on a November evening. The sky had vivid colours from the setting sun.

Incandescence

Incandescence

Incandescence is the phenomenon of light emission by a body as its temperature is raised. I shot this image on an April evening. The sky was cloudless and sun was just above the horizon. The colours in the sky were dramatic.

I underexposed a little to make the colours more rich and defined. I used my Canon EOS 550D in aperture priority mode with exposure compensation. I switched the white balance to cloudy to get beautiful tones from the sky

F-Stop was at f/3.5 and focal length was set to 20 mm . So the sun appears small.
