From here we went to fun park which was absolutely fun

We tried our hand at shooting in which my aim was absolutely superb;
archery lesser said the better actually; i really sucked
Chikku like a silent boy didn't indulge in any of these games but was clicking away to glory

The best was trampoline where rocky really was too good .

Sriraj i did not take photos at the shooting range. maybe chikku took one.

At the skating ring i almost did not get my Butt off the floor and chikku had proof of it.

So i did something very devious and got hold of chikku's camera and deleted the proof ha ha ha ha ha .

I hate when people say that someone went all the way to a place and missed some spots near by.

Its not a rule that you should see ALL. But you should enjoy what you see or do on holidays. Guess you agree.

Wow, the falls picture has come out. Is that some trick? Or just point & shoot.

That snap has to do with setting up

iso at 100/800 depending on light
f @ 1/22 of a second

to get blur effect of the flowing/moving items

More details by the pro snappers of the trip

I am no pro but i got that effect by lowering the shutter speed to 1/5,f/22, iso800(note. f/xx and iso setting has to be adjusted according to the lighting conditions around).

Thanks for the details. Will try out next time when I get a chance. Only problem is to remember to use this setting on the subject

Excellent weather to have such a trip. Looks like you guys had loads of fun. The pictures are nice ( from all 3) and the narration is funny.

Waiting for the rest of them

Thanks

P.S.= Nice to see most of you wearing a life jacket while boating

We have a long way to go to get your clarity of pictures;
One doubt what lens do you use? realized the camera you use canon 400d

For Kabini, this time I used Canon 70-200mm f 2.8 Non IS. Generally I use 100-400mm which I missed a lot during Safari.

Next day we decided to hire a cab to go to berajim lake that is inside a forest zone. With constant drizzle and cold water in the lake would be awesome fun.

We booked a innova but ended up in the qualis as the innova was not cranking up. I was really surprised the way qualis was moving. it was very well maintained one.

This was the most disturbing image, this pic was taken inside the forest zone; Many people i have known and seen drink what and what-not inside the forest zone and litter the whole place. I urge to all please let us not do this.


P.S We finally cleared the whole mess.
