Ira Handa

I have been blessed with a camera with super optical zoom. I don't understand as to why I got this. I usually never get stuff I want. All ways get stuff I don't want . I have been experimenting with this fine piece of work for some time now. The only issue with this camera is that the slowest shutter speed is 4 seconds. So for long exposures, this is not the best. Although I all ways try to crank up the iso and get the maximum of the awesome gadget.

Not long ago, I tried taking a few pictures, I guess I ended up with a few neat shots. 

If you look closely, the craters of the moon (Handa) are visible in great detail. The shadows are also really prominent.

This I took when Chavie and some other good friends of mine came over. This was taken at the Palliyawatta beach in Hendala. The setting sun(Ira) looked really cool through the massive 26x zoom lens.

I have more really cool pictures of this trip. I'll save them for the next few posts. 

I hope you enjoyed the post.



  1. Wow man! Awesome shots!

    And you are asking me how I take snaps? ha? lol

    I love the Ira pic. It’s just like a painting … simply wow!

    Looks like you have a nice piece in your hand. Only thing is if you go for lower shutter speeds is always best to use a tripod. I saw somewhere they are saying especially for all landscape shots you should use a tripod regardless the light or the setting of the cam.

  2. next time u do this retina abuse, am gonna hire Chavie to hijack ur room and get that camera off ur hands at gun point.


    I am super impressed with your moon shot.
    The sunset is breathtaking...

    I was wondering about your retinas, as well. lol

    Thank you for sharing! :))

  4. LOL at GG. Well, it wasn't technically retina abuse since the camera has an electronic viewfinder. :)

    Btw, Meshak my bro, I thought this post was about our 'Moon Microsystems' project! hahaha xD

    Awesome, awesome shots man! Love both. :)

  5. The two photos show cool and calm Moon and the hot and spectacular sun very well!

  6. Wow! magnificient! nice to know someone else who is also moon creazy...:D
    Love the second couldnt have been better...
    awaiting the other pics!

  7. The first picture is awesome...

    "the moon was a ghostly galleon, tossed upon cloudy seas" (tho admittedly no clouds in the pic)

  8. Cool moon shot! :)
