Colour Garden

Colour Garden
In the colour garden of weeds and grasses this dragon fly made its living. This was photographed on the beds of a reservoir near Bangalore. Processing it after 5 years for the web, rumbled memory lane. Soon the comparator tried to take over and had to change the direction.

Made the above image using Canon 40D and processed it almost after 5 years. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the image produced by this camera. Literally no processing was required for removing noise.

Little Grebe

Little Grebe

Tachybaptus ruficollis or little grebe (common name) is going into rest after the sunset.

These ducks move very calmly. Thus the ripples made in the water will be smooth. Sunlight coming from the horizon will hit the ripples at an angle such that shadows are well defined. Since the sun is on the opposite side of the bird, bird also appears dark. I have used the shades of the tree here for dark portion of the image.
