Manchinbele Dam

Manchinbele Dam is a dam built on the river arkavati. This place is ideal for a day outing, though not much can be done here except play in the river , however the view of the dam from the top is really mesmerizing. This place is full of birds and is an ideal spot for bird watching along with TG halli reservoir which is a few kms away from manchinbele

While chatting with my friend in office , he suggested we go for a sunset photoshoot in manchinbele on sunday. Since I had nothing to do on sunday I immediately agreed as I wanted to visit this place , after reading so many blogs , however the visit could not materialize due to some reason or the other. Now that the plan was finalized , I was determined to go there.

I left for manchinbele at 3 in the afternoon along with two of my friends. We reached Rajarajeshwari medical college and took the right next to the college. We were crusing along and we reached Big Banyan Tree in an hour or so. After a small break and we proceeded to the dam. After negotiating a bad stretch of road we could see the backwaters of the dam. We had a small photo session from the top, as the view was fabulous.

The sun had hid itself behind the clouds , and a lonely tree near the banks of the dam , provided an ideal view to experiment with different compositions. We tried various composition techniques and moved on.

Lonely Tree


We could see a lot of people near the bank , while some were playing in the water others were drinking , others were cooking food, and as usual they were littering the place.

Cloud Patterns


The sun was playing hide and seek with the clouds , and the patterns in the clouds along with the cloud cover provided us with a good view of the sunset. We took quite a few snaps in various angles before heading back.

A Fiery Sunset


We found a good view point when coming back , which was utilized well by taking a few shots of the backwaters and the evening sky. We headed back to bangalore after having a cuppa in one of the hotels near Big Banyan Tree.
