    "chalte chalte mera saaya kabhie kabhie yun karta hai
 zameen se uthke, saamne aake, haath pakadkar kehta hai
 abki baar main aage aage chalta hoon
 aur, tu mera peecha karke dekh zara kya hota hai"

-- Gulzar saab

    that dense mane that an occasional Sambar adult male sports has always intrigued me.. 
i think the mane gives it a horse-like quality.. well, almost :)
    we are a lot like them.. 
more than we realize or care to attribute..

    they share intimate relationships with nature and all its elements .. 
the sun, the moon, wind, water, trees, breeze, soil, grass, rain ... meaningful, alive, two way relationships ..

    With Elephants taking center stage, there are elements and beings in the forest that serve as props when the drama unfolds... 
Trees - they take shelter under, Grass - their lifeline, Egrets - companions in every step, Water - their life itself..
And the soil, leaf litter and dust they so lovingly, gently spray on themselves..

    Other than their captivating beauty, what sets Elephants apart from everything else around us is their behavior, their expressions - subtle this minute and vivid the next. They spray dust when they are happy, when they are upset, when they are tense, when they are angry, when they are relaxed .... It is just wonderful to watch them :)

    heightened senses and at every breath fully aware and alive.. 
what an experience it must be, to be an elephant!
    one morning by the river at Bhadra, while the Sun battled it out with the shadows of dawn..

    a colour of purity, of joy..
a colour of entity, of life..
everything truly alive has a colour,
a colour so green, as green as grass

    Slender, lethal and beautiful.. He lies in ambush, so well camouflaged that even a blade of grass mistakes him for his kin.. Almost still, but he moves, like a green shadow..
    For their unmatched size, I've always felt that Elephants have rather small eyes. But, those beautiful little eyes are a perfect compliment to their beauty.

And an Elephant sighting for me is incomplete if I haven't been able to look into that glowing drop of amber with a black iris.

    The first thing that struck me about Bhadra is how beautiful the forest is. The trees look straight out of a fairytale - dense, green, woody, tall, rich. 
Innumerable trips into the jungle there have given me memories to last a lifetime. But, if I shut my eyes and think of Bhadra, the only image that comes to my mind is that of Trees. 

This is an attempt to capture their beauty.

    This image has been glued to my memory thanks to a dramatic wintry sunset I witnessed a year ago. 

Recording it on the camera was just a formality.

    a dead, moist, skeletal leaf proved to be a beauty once photographed.. mysterious pathways and alleys led to new roads.. but it was all just a big maze..
    from a very tranquil lake on a gloomy morning..
    on a wet, moss laden rock in the Anamalais, a tiny waterfall ensured that these pretty things constantly received a fresh shower of waterdrops..
    as I stood on the hill, watching the sun set over the backwaters of the Supa Dam, a Brahminy Kite glided past.. 
a mix of white and golden brown one minute and turning into a pretty silhouette in the next.. 
and then it kissed the Sun goodbye..

    photographed this scene on a winter morning, the sun put up a brave fight with the clouds to make its way past.. 
this shimmer on the water was the visual treat I got :) 
and this lone fisherman worked his morning away, probably unaware that he was - literally - the central part of a beautiful scene..
    in the midst of all the clutter was this bejeweled web.. what would we do without dew? :)
    In a rainforest, every time the Sun manages to find its way through the canopy, it leaves tiny things in its path aglow.. 
I love photographing these luminous, back-lit leaves :)
    "For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.." -- Kahlil Gibran

    rays of light lit up these blades of grass and shadows turned up too.. and when a gentle breeze joined them, the shadows and light played along.. 
the grass swayed and shades shifted..
    On a very bright and sunny morning, these first flush of leaves stood out in contrast against a blue sky.. And two leaves seemed to be reaching out to each other..
    photographed these maroon colored leaves against a dull blue sky.. while processing, felt that monotones enhanced the pretty shapes of the leaves..
