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.

THE ROAD TAKEN

Just shoot off to the road which looks best to you instead of exploring for the new roads, who knows every time you might land up on something special to discover.

CEE’S WHICH WAY PHOTO CHALLENGE – JANUARY 18, 2017

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.

Share your pictures too and if you love to photograph and take part in challenges head towards Cee’s blog and the daily post.

ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY – CEE’S WHICH WAY PHOTO CHALLENGE – NOVEMBER 30, 2016

To begin with let me start with this wonderful quote by Swami Vivekananda:

Pay as much attention to the means of work as to its end.

– Swami Vivekananda 

In other words we are so focused to reach our destination or achieve our goal or target of life that we tend to forget the way we lead to it – the journey. The goal or target has a big mental projection on our minds which diverts our focus from the journey.

My entry for CWW this week is the roads surrounded with trees leading to the hills.

Enjoy the minute details of lovely journey as you pass through trees, lochs and hills and in life enjoy the little packs of happiness while you are busy chasing your target. The destination or the target of the journey can only be enjoyed most when you had a memorable journey too. So pay details to your journey as it will help help you reach your destination, if the journey is good the destination ought to be achieved.

Thanks for reading by and wishing you have a wonderful journey in your life.

Loads of kisses and a BIG HUG 🙂
