Sunday Tree on top – 8/2018


Presenting a beautiful little christmas tree on top of a mountain for Sunday Trees. Taken yesterday during my hike, you got it right, I was back on mountains  again.


Experimental: Capturing reflections while travelling

Photography is all about experiments. I like to travel which obviously creates more opportunities to learn “how to click a better one”.

Capturing reflections while travelling is a tricky business. One needs to be attentive almost all the time. I captured this image from inside a bus. I hate the trees along the road :D. They are such obstacles. Also the road was full of curves but I managed to capture some good images. I hope you like this one.


My second entry for this week’s photo challenge


The Daily Prompt:

Getting success after success is risky.

Getting failure after failure is not only risky it’s life-threatening!

It begins with mental health then move on to physical health and ends up with social health. In worst scenario called as “one unlucky”!

Is there any solution?



A colleague of mine talked about a particular family and their miss fortunes an idea what persuade me to scribble this.

Weekend Special 41: Guilt-free

It was cloudy and raining on and off until yesterday. We decided to go for hiking in the morning as the skies were clear and temperature around 13 C. We had around 3 hours in hand of which we used 2:15.

A beautiful river. The near by glacier supplies non-stop water.
Walking into dense woods.
Wild plum trees along the road.
An abandoned barn.
Dried wild flowers. Nature is getting ready for Winter.
Looking back.

As I mentioned in my earlier post,  I donot have my camera with me and pictures were taken with Samsung s3. We covered distance of 8 km and walked upto height of 450 m above sea level. In the last leg the inclination was 12 %. We were tired but not exhausted. ( In last three days we have walked around 20 km 🙂 ).

Note: I forgot to take pictures of the many cattle grids we had to cross. I wonder if they work for sheeps! Has anyone of you seen a sheep crossing cattle grid?

Tomorrow I will be travelling again. Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.


Weekend Special 40: Ooh Shiny

We here are instantly distracted just by the idea of a few hours of sunshine. Who will stay in! Following this theory, yesterday I used my weekly training time (training time during office hours) of two hours to enjoy a nice warm hiking tour. I covered a distance of around 9 km and went upto a height of 360 m above sea level. I met lots and lots of local and tourist on way. Everyone was shinning and in good mood. But I am glad I walked along some new paths in the forest and relish few moments of solitary with in nature. Here is a collection of pictures.


BTW the weather behaved exactly as forecasted. After the wonderful sunny hours there were episodes of heavy showers in the afternoon and it continues until now.
