This image, which, till recently was the header image of this blog was taken at sunrise from my bedroom balcony in Powai, Mumbai, India. The residential complex at Hiranandani Gardens (where we reside) has tall buildings with elaborately architectured roofs. Throw in a lot of greenery and rolling hills and every sunrise becomes spectacular! I must admit though, I did fiddle with the image in Apple’s Aperture 3 to achieve the desired effect! (Camera: Canon EOS 400D; EF-S 18-55mm)
The monsoon season offers some great photo opportunities. Everything is green and the cloud formations are awesome. I remember this one particular rainbow which seemed to form a roof over the complex and the Hospital I work at. It needed 5 exposures to capture the entire scene which were then merged together using Canon’s photo stitch facility. (Camera: Canon A80. Try as I might, the seams between some of the merged images are still visible and suggestions to improve the image will be greatly appreciated!)
Misty mornings are common. But on the day this photograph was taken the mist was really heavy. At about 8 in the morning, despite the sun being relatively high in the sky, visibility at ground level from my 21st floor apartment was close to zero. All that could be seen were the tops of the skyscrapers rising eerily out of apparently nowhere! Surreal!! (Camera: Canon EOS 400D; EF-S 18-55mm)

The pictures are brilliant , especially the header image with its hint at the dome of St Peter’s Basilica in silhouette . It brought to mind an old picture post card I received from a friend in Rome !
Photos of Hiranandani Powai are never complete without one of the lake and the hills in the background….so incredibly serene…. I hope to see some of those sometime…. 🙂
That picture is brilliant!!
Hole in the head done you a world of good!!
