A rather pensive **Eastern Bluebird** with a beautiful fall color backdrop.
One of my favourite photographs of the beautiful winter visitors, Graylag Geese. ❤️
Took it at Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary (outskirts of Gurgaon, HR, India) in the winters of 2012-13 in a totally foggy, hazy late morning. I was all alone in the park the whole day (I used to visit on working days while being only one around), observing these and numerous other winged wonders.
It was 6 years back (and before) when birding was a pleasure, a meditation, a solitude intoxication, a time for introspection and retrospection, a chance to be poetic with nature and write few lines on it and meanwhile composing some good photographs synching with those thoughts.
However, to me and sadly, in recent years, it has become like an examination center where you have to perform with the masses. By no means I am ridiculing the awesome photographers, artists and conservationists but trying to highlight this strange epidemic to be in a race to get the best shot of some species, in my opinion. It is stressful which is too ironical to think of the fact that we experience nature which is and should be stress-buster and not the other way round. Honestly, I have had extended times of depressive thoughts always pushing me to the limits and being with nature especially birds and photographing them has always kept me sane.
And for the same reason, I have taken a step back and reset my thought process of experiencing nature. Experiencing nature must be natural. 😊
These are purely my personal thoughts and there is nothing right or wrong here. .
How often you find people so inspiring that you want to leave everything and help them build what they wish?
We found @pagirlehladakh and our life changed. Strange how our thoughts aligned talking about waste and its affect on environment. We wish the same goal through different approach. Meeting them made us realise how important it is to involve community. We are looking forward to learn and exchange thoughts on waste management through up-cycling and other innovative methods.
Want to have a window with such a view..
And just like that it’s beanie season 💁🏼♀️
Gorgeous Alaska mountain range.
Snow capped mountains are colorful and spectacular. The glaciers movements formed the U shape valleys and the river carved mountains to form V-shape valleys.
