Part II of Man and the mountain pictures (see 'Man and the Mountain' for part I) are from a trek to Karigudda, where we ended up scaling the relatively un-explored Karigudda peak of Savandurga hills. A trail was there till one of the hills with a large natural pool in it. We could spot Karigudda from the top of this hill and soon we were on unchartered waters.
This pic of Sudeepto, while descending the pool hill, is taken using the Canon EOS 7D, mounted with a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L wide angle lens. I used a f/20, ISO-100, Av mode setting with partial metering for a 1/640s exposure.
After descending the pool hill, we searched through the forest to reach another hill with a Ganesha carving at its base. Karigudda was quite close to this Ganesha hill, but it required another hour of crawling through the forest, followed by climbing up a very smooth rock face to finally reach the peak.
The second pic, taken while Sudeepto was descending the Ganesha hill, was also using the Canon EOS 7D and the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L wide angle lens. This time, I opted for a Manual mode exposure at f/16, 1/1600s and ISO-100.
