Lighthouse at Kaup Beach, Karnataka

Kaup is a small town near the highway connecting Mangalore and Manipal. The entire stretch of road runs parallel to the west coast of India. Of the many small and big beaches here, Kaup is famous because of the light house. In late 2012, a friend and I did a road trip along the coast starting from Mangalore, and terminating at Kundapur. I continued my journey further to Gokarna thus touching upon almost all the major beaches in Karnataka.

I shot this photo with a 1D Mark IV that I had rented. The 1D Mark IV is highly regarded as a sports camera, but here you can see that it shines in landscape photography as well. I love the smooth tones in this photo – a characteristic of a high quality sensor. Later in the trip, I used the camera to shoot my friend’s wedding, where it served me well.
