Mumbai landmark - blue hour marvel

Mumbai Marvel


My love affair with Bandra Worli Sea Link continues. Much though this is one of the most photographed landmark in Mumbai, this still continues to draw me. This one is taken at around 7 pm on a friday evening, this is my first serious long exposure shot; approx 20 secs using rocks for support. I did miss a sturdy tripod and probably its time I get one.

Please do spare a minute to visit other views of this fantastic landmark

Beautiful shot, Mayank! The beauty is in the small details - like the way the lit-up buildings in the background fit right between the pillars, and the long-exposure water effect on the rocks near the bottom left.

Thanks Suvo. Water moving over rocks is a good creative effect. I need a tripod so I could compose shots better. But its fun - you must try it.
