Sky High

Recently Conde Nast Traveler published a post featuring images from places high up. So I thought why not have a similar post even on this blog.

Starting with an image of Paris from the top of Eiffel Tower. With the Sacre Coeur in view.

DSC_0610Next we look onto the city of Prague, from the Prague castle situated strategically on a hilltop making it tough for the ancient man as well as the modern man with high blood cholesterol to climb.

DSC_0246Lets get out of Europe and look at Dubai

DSC_0135Lets look down upon one of the Indian cities, the city of Kolkata.

DSC_0010Back to Europe, to Italy specifically, looking at the red housetops of Venice.

DSC_0546Next we look down upon Florence, the city after which Florence Nightingale was named. The view is secured after climbing over 400 treacherous steps through narrow pathways and dark haunting alleys all built within the Florence Duomo.

DSC_0004 Finally we look over the city of Rome, which incidentally was not built in a day, from the top of the St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City.

The Super Moon

The SuperMoon 2013.

The Super Moon has nothing to do with the Super as in Super Man or any other creature, it is simply the time in the year when the moon is closest in orbit to the earth.But the unfortunate part of the supermoon is the prediction that there are always some natural disasters linked with it…If you look at the world history or the recent news, you’ll just see how there were numerous floods and cloud bursts in the last few weeks around the world…

In other news my dear wordpress friends, I am a little overbooked these days..I am infact not finding time to even take photographs..But that is to change very soon and we’ll be back in family communication again, the wordpress family.. Meanwhile I am really thankful to my wordpress friends who have connected with me on my Facebook Page  or my Facebook  Profile … Cheers guys.!!




The birds in the image are parrots.

Also note that the following Moon Shot by Marcus Sam  is currently the highest rated/most popular image on National Geographic  at the moment. 




Happy Sunday Morning

Some shots are purely accidental..This shot being taken from my car’s windscreen (moving at around 40kmph),the steering wheel in the left hand and the camera in the right..

Yummy Nectar

Yummy Nectar..A bug ( Macroglossum stellatarum) inspecting a flower for possible luncheon options.. :

Here is another shot of the same insect, at a higher shutter speed…Many people like the wings to be blurred to make it appear like the objects are in motion, while many people like a full clearcut shot… So here are 2 shots for both the mindsets…
