Bright blessed day....dark sacred night
My tribute to the land where the light is always golden and the darkness always deep.... Just by themselves, they are remarkable and divine, but when you have them testing out each other at the fag end of a day, you are treated to some truly out of this world visions.
Thanks for looking

Superb perspective Harsha !! I love the way you placed the moon and the mountain in the frame. Lot of people like to shoot scapes in moonlight when the moon appears much closer to the scape and not as high up as in your image. This one is really working for me. Bang on exposure. Am dying to know the shutter details :).

A fantastic image and thoughtful commentary. I liked eveything about this image: subtle hues of the sky, strong shadows on the hill, placement of moon... Congrats, Harsha. TFS.

Thanks for the appreciation Nilanjan and Ramesh. The exposure for the image: f/6.3 at 1/50sec and 50mm ISO 100 on AV mode

wonderful scape with just right exposure showing details of the moon as well. moon seems to be too near the edge and overall imbalance, which i feel, lessens the impact, harshaji.

Play of shadows and light on moutains and muted blues makes this image interesting for my taste buds. Just wondering whether use of graduated neutral density filter to cut the exposer on moon (and a bit on sky) would have added further. Thanks for sharing Harsha..

Harsha, I am perfectly ok about placing the moon toward the edge considering the situation this was shot. If I am right, this was down the Changla pass at the last light!! It was a perfect Sunny F16 lighting where we didn't experience any blow out in exposing the frame perfectly for the shadows as well as the moon!! What a frame this is. Pastel colors on the clouds is like a background note to a serene tune of euphony. Print it large!!

A very good landskype image. Loved the light on mountain. I love to be bit choosy on placement of moon but what one can do considering the field situations.

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

You are right Pramod, this was at Changla, that light was truly the most remarkable thing that happened to us on our trip.

Few weeks back when i was coming back to Bangalore from Mysore - myself and Ganesh stopped over for an hour at Ramanagara. I saw a similar situation there. The light was fading so fast that i coulnt react fast enough to capture the beauty.
I think i will compensate for that loss by admiring this image.
Beautiful composition and play of light display.

Shiva, this image was made two days earlier to your trip to Gaganachukki falls with Ganesh, I remember Pramod speaking to you on the phone about this trip when we were getting back from Ulle Topo on that following Friday. So it was almost the same moon you missed that day. Would have been interesting to see how the moon would have looked from Bangalore.
