On the 3rd day of our Kodai - Munnar trek, we started early morning towards Kilavarai. The striking feature of the landscape here is the terraced farming land - with the far-away hills forming a beautiful backdrop.
I was looking for birds when I spotted this house - seated on top of a green hill far away from us. I first searched for the landscape lens, but soon realized that a closer shot of the house may make a better frame. I was not carrying the 70-200, otherwise, it would have been a better choice for this shot with a slightly wider frame. So here it goes - taken using the Canon EOS 7D, mounted with a Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L tele photo lens.
I opted for a manual, f/16, 1/60s, ISO-100 exposure. With the 400mm, I could not have handheld the camera at 1/60s, neither was I carrying the tripod. But, I could find the fence which could support the setup. I placed it on top of the fence and used timer trigger for this shot.
