Shivanasamudram and Somanathpur trip...

Last weekend we went to Shivanasamudram falls and Somanathpur temple for a day long trip. We started with just the Shivanasamudram falls in mind. There are two ways to reach Shivanasamudram from Bangalore.

1. Take Kanakpura road, its a National Highway (NH209) and goes all the way to Dindigul from Bangalore. I think its the shortest route to Coimbatore from Bangalore but the road is not good. Till Kanakapura it was good actually but after that renovation is going on and the road is in bad shape.

2. The other way is thru Bangalore-Mysore State highway (SH17) which is in fantastic condition. You will have to go all the way to Maddur and then take a left turn towards Mallavalli. The same road joins NH209 just 17km before Shivanasamudram.

Ignorant of the NH209's condition, we went that way. It came to around 120km till the first fall. There are two falls there, Gaganachukki and Barachukki. We first went to Gaganachukki.

Being a Christmas weekend, it was very crowded there -

There i…

This one is for the moon. Like sun, moon wasn't spared either. But it seems moon decided to play naughty with me. Except for one or two, in all the other snaps it will either go left or right, up or down but will refuse to remain steady. Check it out yourself -

Finally it relented -

I got another ok one with auto mode -

Thanks for bearing with me for this one. Enjoy!

I took a lot of sunset and sunrise photographs during the Mysore trip. We started from Bangalore at around 4pm so I tried my hand on sun set on the way. Here you go -

All of those were taken from the cab running at 110kmph. :-)

I went to Infosys Mysore recently for some work. This time I took my camera with me. And every morning and evening, we used to go out for long walks and took lots of photographs. Good that I was accompanied with people who know about photography and they taught me how to use modes other than automatic in my Canon S2IS. I will be posting those photographs in the days to come. Lets start with the "good morning" photographs first -

Deserted Infosys road, dawn time -

This cloud formation looked interesting. Some kind of sign language, near the origami building -

The Sun rising from behind the Origami building (note that the chimney is not part of the Infy Campus) -

The Sun rises on ECC building -

And the basket ball court -

So how were these? More to come in later posts. Thanks for watching!
