Chasing the sun set from Colombo to Galle - Beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka

Going back to sri lanka after 11 years was really exiting and I was pleasantly surprised with the number and accessibility of beaches.

Grand Canyon - Truly Grand!

Had great full day experience of Grand canyon. This is a collection of shots taken walking around the south rim and along the Little Colorado River Canyon.  Also managed to capture a few end of day shots of the Grand Canyon from the desert view point. 
This is a really huge place and makes me feel one day is too shore to explore. So must go back!

Las Vegas at Night

Walking around Las Vegas at night with a tripod was the best way to capture the true sense of Vegas. 

A good test for the Canon EOS 7D high ISO performance.


This one from my hotel room.

Canon EOS 7D

After shooting with Canon EOS 300D for about 6 years I have now upgraded to Canon EOS 7D. This is a massive improvement in high ISO image quality and the camera speed. 7D is really fast and ready for action immediately and it is very pleasing to shoot with.   The biggest improvement is the auto focus – very quick and accurate. 

Hope to gets some good shots this summer.
