Muthathi: Here the river makes art

A clean reflection at Muthathi

Muthathi  a small village now a great tourist attraction mainly from the nearest big city Bangalore which is just 90 KMs . Many come to this place with family and friends to take a break from hectic city life during the weekends.

For  nature photographers this is an incredible place to hangout. For me it is a great relaxing place. I have a private space in the river between the rocks to cool my body.

How to reach :  After Kanakpur take a left at Sathnur . There are sign boards which lead you to Muthathi. Recognizing this place is quite easy as suddenly a rush of people, traffic appears from nowhere at this place.

Photography tips: Both sunset and sunrise lovers can enjoy this place . Reflections , cloudy sky are the best features you can get here . Take your own food if you want to spend a  day here . Reaching Muththi at very early morning,enjoy the full sunrise , trek along the shores of the river, take a nice swim and cool of your body in the after noon and a blissful sunset watch will be the ideal break for me often. And the photos ? here are they  🙂

Equipments used : Canon EOS 60d, Sigma 17-70mm, Canon ef-s 55-250 lens ( lent by my friend Nagesh)  tripod, GND filters

one rock is enough to make art! 25 sec, f8, ISO100, 23mm
