Beautiful Kuthumkal waterfalls in Munnar, Kerala.
Story Behind the Photo
Taking waterfalls photograph could be sometimes quite challenging because of the sheer number of tourists clogging and also because of the weather requirements to make it shine.
It was not surprising to see so many tourists at Kuthumkal waterfalls because it is one of the main tourist attractions in Munnar. I took a photograph from close quarters but it was way too distracting and also the tourists didn’t care to give me some space to setup my tripod.
So, I moved back quite a bit which means my main subject – the waterfalls – is far away from the camera. I had to bring in foreground element to create visual interest in the scene. I found this foreground rock very interesting since it was bit pointed and diagonally inclined.
After finding the right point-of-view it was matter of applying the right setting like slow shutter speed and smaller aperture to set the right mood to this beautiful Khutumkal waterfalls.
