It was a misty morning and the river was covered in a veil. Visibility was restricted. The sun could not penetrate the soft mist. Outline of the shore could be made out.
I was on Valapattanam Bridge in North Kerala when I took the shot. I pointed my camera to east of the bridge where the river was flowing on to Arabian Sea. The sea could not be seen in the distance.
The camera was hand held. Shutter speed was 1/320 sec. Flash did not fire. I used Auto mode. ISO speed was 80.
