A last minute plan to drive to Shettihalli church made me pull out my camera from the drawers. Just experimenting with the slo-mo on my camera, the Panasonic GH5.

The uniqueness of this church is that it’s completely submerged during the monsoons, from the Hemavathi reservoir. The church, currently in ruins, appears when the reservoir goes dry, and water level goes down. And with the monsoons in full flow, it won’t be long before the church gets submerged again. One can spot it half submerged in winter and completely above during the summer. A good time to visit the place would be about a week or 2, when the reservoir starts to submerge the church again.
