Photography: Click-Click Desert Road Trip

It was early morning as we drove our cars in the middle of the desert. My friend knew where we were heading to, while the rest of us just kept following him. We did know that he was taking us to a place where we could put our photography skills to work.

Shot Name: Just Sand
Shutter speed: 1/400, Aperture: f/8, ISO: 100
We made it to our 'spot' just before sunrise. I managed to get a couple of shots, some of them pretty neat while some did not turn out that good. Shots ranged from the beautiful sunrise, the desert, man-made power lines, ship of the desert - Camels and lots more.

We drove around the area to capture some more interesting things. Lucky enough to have spotted some cyclists riding their bikes for practice. This was by far the best shot of the day for me. 

Shot Name: A Race in the Desert
Shutter speed: 1/500, Aperture: f/9, ISO: 800
Given the number of photos I had clicked, it was difficult to narrow down on the top shots, however I have managed to select 3. I feel these 3 shots pretty much round up the experience of the road trip. It also manages to share what I saw during those few hours that I spent in the desert.

If it was for someone else, they might have picked up 3 different pictures. This is what I love about photography; one tends to pick up those pictures which are not only good but also the ones he or she likes. Different perspective, different angles, different photos, but the result is the same - One happy photographer.
