...and then there was light


Taken at Guchu Pani, Dehra Dun. This place is also known as Robber's Cave, and is home to a rather strange sight - a stream of water goes underground and resurfaces for air a few metres away. However, I had neither the agility nor the stupidity to clamber over slippery rocks to check it out for myself, risking a broken neck, a barked shin, or worse - a broken camera lens. So you would excuse me for not venturing that far. I never could understand these Robber-type personalities. Except for the Beagle Boys.

Amazing!

Man your photographs should be in an art gallery.

Very good. I second Brewtus'suggestion.

Hey, it's a very nice composition. If you go there again, try a shot close to dawn / dusk and try a longer aperture. That way, you will get more detail, since there will be no hot spots misleading the light meter.

The shaft of light is excellent, it's difficult to get usually.

Yesbob: :)

Brewtus, Hari: Thanks, junta! (beaming smile)

Anurag: Yep, I find it very difficult to do accurate metering in such starkly-lit conditions, and it's rather infuriating, since this is precisely what I'm interested in. Will try that. Thanks, m'man! :)

Shrik: Yay! Company!

RS: Yes, ma'am...sorry... I still have that tag of yours pending...
