New Delhi Power Lines in the Fog Photo Story
Jetlagged and tired with only 3 hours sleep, I opened the curtains of my New Delhi hotel room to check out the view. It wasn’t a great view with power lines blocking most of the compositions.
I decided to make the best of it and use the power lines and towers as the subject of my composition. The photo is full of lines with power lines, highway and lights leading the eye through the photo.
I love going to hotel rooms and finding early morning compositions outside the window. There are a few tricks when taking photos from hotel room windows. To avoid the glare in the windows, turn off as many lights as possible, close the curtains around you or your tripod, and wear dark clothing.
