Watching the Earth Rotate: White rann of Kutch


Black and White Version


This was shot 7km's from Dhordo Village .Dhordo is about 80km north of Bhuj[major town of Kutch in the state of Gujarat]. I've earlier posted single shot from the 68 shots taken in total .My plan was to shoot 2 hours of star trail,but like I said earlier our bus got stuck in sand so I had to cut short. Given a chance ,I would love to go again to complete the Star Trails :)
