The Magic of Petra: Download July 2016 Calendar Download
Dear reader, for July desktop calendar, let us once again go to the magical, mystical and almost mythological city of Petra. Once lost in the sand of times, today Petra is one of the biggest tourist attraction in the world and one of the seven wonders of the world.
About the Image: This image was made in Petra just after the sound and light show ends and everybody starts clicking images from selfies to group pictures.
It was around this time I noticed long shadows mixing with hundreds of paper lanterns around. As there was no big light source except the paper lanterns it was difficult to make out where the person ends and the shadow begin.
Before you download the image go ahead and check my earlier post about Petra the magical city that takes you back to Arabian Nights and much before even fairy tales of Arabian Nights were told.

How this long exposure image was made: I was carrying my Gorilla pod with me, that I kept on top of a table to get a long exposure of 20 Seconds to get the desired exposure level as well as some amount of a feeling of movement both from the shadows and from the lanterns. The camera used was Nikon D 7000, with 18 -105 VR lens.
The complete settings and gear are like this
Camera Body: Nikon D 7000
