A lounge at NICE Road, Bangalore

Sitting in front of the monitor definitely creates boring environment around, a camera is best friend for one who really likes to be a part of the nature and the visiting places, in fact camera is one of the best tonic for depression and loneliness only if one will used to Throttle level then only you will came to know about the difference b/w the eye and lens. It was long journey with my camera and i was really struggling to get good quality of pictures, it's sure that one will buy a camera looking at the price and the rankings. I was the same fellow who followed the same criteria, once i got the camera then only i came to know about the different level of photographic skills, i came to know about lot of options inside the camera, here is the below points i have learned by typing in Google.

1. Shutter speed
2. Aperture
3. ISO
4. Light metering
5. Exposure compensation
6. Picture control (Editing)
7. White Balance (PRE)
8. Focus points
9. HDR option only you will get in Nikon 5100
10. Long Exposure

and one more option is using the Gray card as white balance. After i learned these options i feel free in Manual mode. A struggle free shooting where-ever i go ! and more to come in my blog. Catch me on future collections of my photos.

I took some best shots at NICE road, in fact it was a rainy day and plenty of greenery. I have tried these shots with HDR option too.

Pushpagiri or Kumara Parvatha

Kumara parvatha, a famous trekking place in Western Ghats of Karnataka, It was a fearsome experience, we were started from Somvarpet to trek kumara parvatha, we have hired an auto around 6:30 PM to reach Hegdemane which is near Beedalli, we had our dinner at Nandish house a nearby home, food was very tasteful and clean too, after the dinner we decided to stay at shantha Mallikarjuna Temple, we slept inside the temple premises in our tent !, We waked up around 4:30 AM and got freshen, filled water bottles and started to trek 5:00 AM, we reached Beedalli forest office, we were lucky forest guards were sleeping we passed without fee.. We stopped intermittently to take rest, we have reached the view point around 7:00 AM we took beautiful shots of sunrise at Somvarpet mountains. Passed further and we took left side path for pushpagiri, finally we have reached Kumaraparvatha top, we spent some time there and started to move on to catch some more shots of pushpagiri mountains range, it’s a perfect colors of winter season, blue sky providing the perfect contrast to nature, we met many trekking enthusiast on the way we were getting down, we reached Guddadahalli forest office, forest guard was not checked our tickets while going there filled the water bottles again, we have moved further to Bhattara mane, I was felt bad looking at the too much house flies on food stuffs, later I took bread and Jam instead of Bhattara mane food, I appreciate his effort on bringing all those facility in the remote place I believe  that it will not be useful unless have some level of hygienic !, from Bhattara mane we were started our way back to Subramanya to put end for the fantastic trekking experience.
