The beauty of Kanyakumari

Kanyakumari is a coastal town in the state of Tamil Nadu on India’s southern tip. Jutting into the Laccadive Sea, the town was known as Cape Comorin during British rule and is popular for watching sunrise and sunset over the ocean.

The Thiruvalluvar statue and Swami Vivekananda rock are must to visit places. This is a place where you can observe the spectacular view of rising sun and the beautiful Sun set from the same location.

The Best Time To Visit Kanyakumariย  is in the middle of October and March.


Photo details :

  1. Top left – F/18; ISO-100; Exposure-3sec : The photo was clicked in the morning with clouds in sky. The photo was clicked in Manual mode. To get the silky water camera was set to exposure time of 3secs with ISO-100. A sturdy tripod is must for such long exposure time, considering the high speed winds and strong waves jumping on the Camera. And some precaution from water is also needed.
  2. ย Top Right – F/13; ISO-100; Exposure-1/13sec: Sometimes a frame without humans look good, but some time human element adds life to a photo.
  3. Bottom Right – F/5; ISO-100; Exposure-1/320: Swami Vivekananda rock and Thiruvalluvar statue in the day light. The grass is taken as foreground, the sea water helps to add the mid ground and the Swami Vivekananda rock and Thiruvalluvar statue makes the back ground. If a landscape has these three elements then it helps to define the depth of the photograph. Could have been much better with F-Stop of F/11 or F/13.
