New Sky, New Land

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 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.
