My second visit here and I really can’t get enough of it. It takes me a while to take in the elegant minarets and amazing workmanship. I visualize a pale intricate structure with a backdrop of a blanket full of stars. It’s already past 10PM and not visible light, except for the occasional vehicle lights from the road. Armed with a 50mm lens only, I try in vain to get the entire structure in one frame. Finally I have to put the camera on the railing across the road at an awkward angle to avoid the glare from the risen moon. A 15 sec exposure and I get this picture.
Night Photography is always interesting and gets intriguing results. Light is low so you have to depend on artificial sources which are seldom, limited and not dependable. Yet those few sources can be used to your advantage to generate a different image.
They say an image speaks about the photographer, his state of mind. Choosing this picture over many others as the image of the day, makes me reflect back about my state of mind, or is it my current state? A blinding light that knows no boundaries, recognises no barriers, something that makes bars or cages to melt. Shows my positive approach to life I think!
