March 2015 calendar desktop wallpaper: The Most Magical Swimming pool
Dear readers, let us welcome , a month that brought shivers down my spine even as the mercury rose to torturing thirties and occasionally flirting with forties. But the shivers down the spine had nothing to do with weather; my shivers were due to the exam season. Yes March is the month of exams in most of the schools in India and mine was no exception. So suddenly I had to find all the books, beg, borrow and in one case even steal (for photocopying then returning) notes from the smart ones in the class.
But that is another story; let me introduce to you the March 2015 desktop calendar. Here you see the fairy tale Zanana Mahal of Lakshman Sagar reflecting in the chiseled pool. (Chiseled out, chip by chip in the rock atop a small hill).
Here is my blog post on the Lakshman Sagar, one of the most luxurious and unique palace hotels in the world, surrounded by Aravalis, and a reservoir home to many local and migratory birds and animals like Nilgai, Spotted Deer, and Sloth Bear etc.

How I took this picture around sunset: It was around dusk and a bit windy so the water in the pool was constantly moving giving a wavy reflection. Then I got lucky and as I set up the Tripod (which was not easy as the pool ends on small cliff. Here are the settings that were used:
F/11 to get the whole scene in focus and get a deep depth of field, which further reduced the light entering into the camera, so I had to increase the ISO to 1000 to compensate for diminishing light around sunset, which gave me a shutter speed of 1/500 just enough to get a sharp picture of reflection as wind stopped for some time and the pool became placid. Focal length was 18 mm on the 18-105 VR 3.5- 5.6 lens on a Nikon D7000 body, held in place sturdily on Manfrotto Tripod.
I promise that I will not sell, rent, or donate your email to anybody
