One Saturday evening, some friends and I decided to explore Krishnagiri Dam which is located in Tamil Nadu. We set out from Bangalore after lunch and hit NH44 which goes all the way to Kanyakumari. Somewhere after Hosur we got caught in a major downpour which included a brief hailstorm. Visibility was poor, but thanks to the well marked three lane roads, we managed to reach our destination in time for sunset.
Krishnagiri Dam is close to the highway, but yet fairly unexplored. It was still drizzling when we got there, so drove around looking for a nice spot. The turquoise colored backwaters of the dam looked very enticing. To our luck, the rains stopped and we got a chance to capture some frames by the shore. Constant lightning in the sky offered some spectacular fireworks and the grey rain clouds added a touch of drama to the photographs. After spending a good hour or so, we headed back, happy to have enjoyed the place without disturbance from other tourists.
I shot this photograph with the Sony A7rII and ZEISS Loxia 21mm f/2.8 Lens. The dynamic range of the Sony camera never fails to amaze me 🙂
