Sky Watch Friday- Sunset at Noida

By Mridula Dwivedi February 1, 2013 19 Comments

I love it when I can catch a colorful sunset right in the middle of the city. This was clicked from my sister’s home at Noida. Of course I am presenting the scene quite selectively here, I have not included the construction cranes and other such trappings of civilization.

The birds just crossed the frame while I was clicking and what a bonus it was! I was using my 75-300 mm lens at that time hence I got lucky with the birds!

And then the next day while I was waiting at the Metro station to start the long commute back to work I saw this pale dawn breaking! I am a big fan of sky watch Friday as before that I was also one of those people who can remain completely unaffected through the dramas that happen in the sky!

  2. Hi Mridula,

    Wow, the first click looks so surreal. You’ve captured it beautifully. You’re right, the birds are an awesome addition to the click and enhance its beauty.

    It’s good to hear that you shot the second one while waiting at the Metro station, just goes to show that good shots can be composed even while doing routine chores.

    Keep it up Mridula. 🙂 🙂 🙂
