    The UNESCO world heritage site tagged place in Mumbai, the Elephanta Caves is worth visiting once.

    You've depicted the island very nicely. Beside the caves the added local flavour makes it an interesting gallery.

    Thanks everyone.

    Rajkumar, It is really sad to see this treasure lost with time but what was really bugging and gets me hopping mad is when I see people have scribbled senselessly on these age old heritage items. Its amazing how little we care for our national treasures!

    Yes Udayan. As you said on our way back there was water splashing into the ferry. One could sit on the top or the other side (where the waves were not hitting the ferry). I'm glad that it brought back memories from way back. Rainy seasons or close to that season can be the real hard times. And yes, a few images are from the boat, increased the ISO and keep the shutter speed high enough - plus the VR helps.

    My advise Mayank would be to go there either early or late. There are many Ferry, we took the Delux or Luxury and it wasn't too expensive. I think it was Rs. 150 per person for round trip (if I remember it right). Or maybe it was Rs. 120. Get the tickets at the counter near the Yatch Club. Ferry run every hour so there is plenty of choice. Days can be rather hot. Carry a water bottle. There are small eating places on the way but nothing fancy. Also, be warned that there is a climb. Steps, but a fair bit. A hat for the Sun would be a good idea. Also do this before the rains start as the waters can get rough and I believe they also stop the ferry during this time. So in the next couple of weeks is a good time to do this.

    And if you are going to take pictures, I high advise a tripod. The light is pretty low and even if you push the ISO you get a shallow DOF, so a tripod & wide angle lens is the way to do it.

    Have fun and then share your pictures here.

    Suchit - you have captured the essence of the journey and the destination. Reminds me of my visit to the Elephanta caves in 1998- the boat was rolling, sea was a bit rough and some of my fellow passengers also got drenched. You must have taken some of the shots from the boat and they are still very sharp.

    Regds,
    Udayan

    Suchit - I like the contrast colour on hazy greenish b/g. Bird shot is amazing.

    TFS
