When the Shadow Appears…

Photograph by Grigory Gankin, Gansky.500px.com
Location: Bagan, Myanmar
Date: December 10, 2011

Camera: SONY DSLR A700
Focal Length: 105mm
Aperture: f/7.1
ISO/Film: 400
Shutter Speed: 1/4000 sec

Note: Grigory Gankin took this foggy photo over Bagan, Myanmar (wiki link). The time of the day when this was shot makes this such a beautiful photo. The ruins of Bagan can be seen if you look closely at some of the buildings that litter the landscape between the trees. These ruins were built in the 11th to 13th century and is captured beautifully with the sunlight and foggy atmosphere. Awesome and unique photograph.

Tip: Grigory used an aperture (wiki link) of 7.1 to have less depth of field and to capture more of the landscape in focus. By increasing his aperture, he was letting less light into the camera so he increased his film speed (ISO, wiki link) to help expose the photograph. Using a fast shutter speed (wiki link) of 1/4000 might seem high, but when shooting with zoom lenses, it helps to have a quicker shutter speed to avoid unintentional blurriness when you are not shooting with a tripod.
