Sewri in the morning

Took a recce trip to sewri today in the early morning. The tide was moving out and it had almost receded half way to low tide when we reached. Sunrise today was  at 0643 so not much light in the early morning. Its better to time an evening shoot since the sun would be on our back for most parts.  In the morning but be warned you are facing almost due east and will be shooting into the sun. However not too bad.

But all in all a pleasant morning with the usual suspects.

Bhandup on Holi

After some two plus years, pulled out my tripod and my new upgraded faithful, the  600mm F4 VR FL.  Good to be back in action !

Not may birds but some usual suspects. The lake is drained dry and the grass is completely burnt. So not may birds at all. Possibly the creek is blocked off since the salt is being harvested in the adjacent salt pans.
