Going by the old Bajaj Avenger ad, did I really feel like god after a 1000km solo ride in two days from Bangalore to Malampuzha / Siruvani / Mannarkad / Attappadi? May be not! But the trip was really fun and hope to do more of those!
One of the best moments during the ride was Malleeswaramudi and I could not resist taking a pic of this majestic looking peak with the Avenger in the background. The pic was taken using the Canon EOS 7D and Canon EF 16-35mm /2.8L almost at its widest angle. I used Av mode for this pic at f/16 for a 1/15s exposure at ISO-100.
Another photography moment came, when I was taking a break near Erode at sweltering heat! I had the bike parked next to the highway and the helmet next to me. The reflections falling on the helmet looked interesting and I had to take out the camera.
I used a f/9 aperture with 1/50s and ISO-250 for this pic. In spite of the scorching sun outside, I still needed a relatively higher ISO to get the reflection from the black helmet surface.
