SUNSET AT SANGAM – MY PLACE IN THE WORLD

Where do you belong? In the hustle and bustle of a big city or amongst friendly faces in a small town?

The place I want to be is the closest to nature – rivers, oceans, lakes, mountains, forest, wildlife, trees and park. As a personal choice, I would prefer to avoid crowded beaches or places and prefer more calm and serene one.

The immense peace and solitude it has to offer beats the daily hustle in life, takes away all your stress and negative feelings, rejuvenates you and it helps in reflecting your true self and leading to discover a new you, almost always.

The sound of the sea waves, the chirping of the birds, the pitter-patter of the rain in the roof – all helps to shred all your worries and anxieties. So I feel no place in the world is better than the lap of nature

These pictures are from Sangam, it is a confluence of 3 rivers, Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati in the holy city of Allahabad. It is also the place where the worlds largest human congregation takes place called the Kumbh Mela – around January and is visited by millions across the globe.  It is believed that a bath in the Holy Ganga river will wash away all your sins and this is what the Kumbh Mela is all about. If you have not heard of it then you must read more about it here.

The place is otherwise not crowded and busy, there are stretches where you can certainly sit back and enjoy the sunset. Seen here is the bridge over river Yamuna and was taken from a boat ride.

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – April 7, 2017

Recently I spent some time on a cottage by the Holy river Ganges and these bricks clan were very wisely used to take you to your cottage. Once you have been there I am sure you would miss the peace and tranquillity the place offers and would feel healed from some aspect.

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – March 24, 2017

Some pictures from the serene resort in the midst of the woods where we spent a few days. It was so lovely to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. It was such a pleasant surprise to wake up among a species of birds and a muster of peacocks.

I hope you will love the pics as always, happy clicking to you all and have a good day ahead.

Love to travel or always keen to hit the road to explore, this week’s pictures will help you relate to and will motivate you to go out for a drive, the weather is pleasant and it has been raining all day. If you have a similar weather go out for a ride break and enjoy. I am just back after a ride and captured some lovely pics of flowers too on  the way back.

This week I have selected a different set of photographs for this challenge, this in turn are a few photographs related to long exposure photography and as it is all about travelling in the roads, I thought it would be a good idea to share it. I am sure you would enjoy and love these.

Will share and post details soon as to how you can also try some hands on for capturing long exposure. This time I was not satisfied with myself however time did not permit me to experiment more, so wait until my next post with some better pics on this one, meanwhile I hope you will like these.
