Another page from my #travel diary…this time, a tree shot taken during a cruise on the mighty lake Vembanad, at Kumarakom, in Kerala. Continue reading
Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the Earth—You owe me. Look what happens with a love like that—It lights up the sky!
Today, I bring you these shots from a few weeks back, when we still had the occasional bursts of red and orange streaks spread all across, at dawn and dusk. That was much before the sky decided to wrap itself in a bleary grey cloak, with the onset of Monsoon, bringing the much-needed showers and a dip in the soaring temperatures. Sad to say, that Bangalore skies were never this dull, as they are right now. When I’m at home, I love sky watching in the wee hours of the morning and feel lucky if I catch a sunset, while wrapping up the chores, in the evening. These days, the luminescence of the flaming sky is being sorely missed. Sharing some shots that bring back fond memories for me. Hope you like them.
So, how have you been and how was your sky this week? If you love taking sky shots, do share them by clicking the link below. You may also visit the link to see the beautiful sky photos people post from all over the world.
I’m sure you had a busy week. But, tell me, when you had some time to spare, did you spend it staring into your gadgets, or did you raise your head, to look out of that window? Did you realise how time flies and how days turn into nights and the weeks roll into months? We don’t often realise that spending mindful moments amidst nature every now and then can be a huge stress-buster. Do take some moments to stop…pause…watch…and see how much beauty there is for us, without our asking. When you do, I hope you enjoy them. Life, they say, happens in these everyday moments, while we’re busy chasing other things.
Linking this with #Skywatch Friday, where people post beautiful sky shots from different parts of the world.)
Spring is here. As I stepped out for a walk yesterday, I couldn’t help but notice that the trees that were bare until a few days back, have tender leaves and pink blossoms on their branches. As you can see in the image, the topmost branches are still bare, which means we will have to wait a few more days to see the tree in full bloom. Continue reading
WW Pic #22: ‘Mysterious Object’
Amazed to discover something like this, so thought of sharing it. This rare spectacular specimen of bladelike crystals is actually a naturally occurring mineral called Stibnite (composed of Antimony and Sulphur) and is the largest on display anywhere in the world. This image was taken at the Natural History Museum, New York. Continue reading
