Lovely photographs of the lake. Especially the white tree in the middle of the lake with the apartment blocks in the background. I guess you must have shot all of these "handheld" rather than with a tripod. The latter would have given even sharper pictures. Super overall.

Previously people were not all that concerned about lakes. You can see a lot of them converted to public places like Kanteerava stadium, Subhasnagar (Majestic), Shivanahalli (bus stand) etc. Old Bengaluru does not have too many lakes for that reason.

Hi Alchemist (nice name),

Yes, all hand held. Does tripod make a difference even in good daylight when shutter speed is reasonably high? I am a student of photography, this will be a learning for me...will do some research.

Thank You

Visited the Kaikondrahalli lake again, this time in the evening.

Saw many photographers with long ultra-zoom lenses - "Puttukutti" as per my wife (Puttikutti is the cylindrical vessel used for cooking Puttu, a Kerala breakfast item)

Yet to hear views on why some trees in the lake are white in color and why those are the trees in which you find maximum number of birds.

The 'white trees' are invariably deciduous trees which shed all their leaves in Winter.
Now, around February/ March you will see them completely rejuvenate themselves with fresh shoots and fresh leaf growth.
Some of the white trees might be completely dead too, because of root water-logging which can happen to those that are planted around swamps and lakes.

Hi Shankar,

Even I think the tree is white due to the reasons you gave. But a friend of mine pointed out that only the trees that have become the "bird colonies" have the distinct white shade. And the shade itself makes it look as though somebody dumped some white stuff on it.

If you observe th first 2 snaps on page one you will see that the grass below the trees have the same white color sprinkled on them.

So are the trees and grass painted by our feathered friends? If so this is one good example which proves that even s*** can look beautiful

Hi,

Watching sunset at Agara lake is a nice experience. Hopefully this lake will also get rejuvenated.

Nice thread there on capturing some thing that seems obvious to us on a day to day life. Also wondering if anyone have visited the lake near/behind Bannerghatta National Park called Thattekere.

Heard that it is very scenic and desolate even though it is very close to civilization.
