    I set out on a journey to Sathodi Falls, watching the brilliant Planet Earth episode and all the breath-taking cinematography captured by the BBC Photographers. I was very eager to at least make an image of plants against the sunlight. As they say, you have to be at the right place, at the right time to capture a moment. This was a moment of nature while I was about to reach the falls, where you have to walk for a couple of kilometers, with a scenic Kali river flowing beside you.  The setting for only visible for a minute and I was lucky to capture the frame. I did not even post-process the image. This image is very special to me  :)

    Brahminy Starling

    Though there are a good number of Indian Pond Herons at Hebbal Lake, I feel that once can easily experiment and make good images. There was a tree in the foreground and I thought I would make use of it to create this image :) This one particularly waited for 20 minutes at the same spot to catch the fish  :) 

C&C Welcome :)
    Never expected to spot Black Ibis at Hebbal Lake. The lake looks serene early in the morning, and the fog helped me to capture this picture. Converted to B/W during Post Processing. C&C Welcome :)

    I will just leave it here.
    Have been obsessed with nature and wildlife for quite sometime. I visited Bhadra Tiger Reserve after many years with my new DSLR and I really thought that I would spot some animals ( Locals say it's very tough to spot even a bison ). But luckily, there were lots of frogs and the sight of a Bicolored Frog, although for the first time to me, was very intriguing. I took several shots of many frogs, but this one decide to pose :) Also, would like to point to out how perspective is everything in an image :)

C&C Welcome.
    I was really lucky to get both the heron and the pintail in the frame. Used some tools in Picasa for postprocessing. C&C welcome. :)

    5 images of 1 Cattle Egret or 1 image of 5 Cattle Egret? :D 

C&C Welcome.
    Hi All :)

This is my first image from my new camera Nikon D7000. I had been using a point and shoot camera for almost 5 years and I have certainly learnt a lot about creating images with fewer constraints compared to a D-SLR. Looking forward to actively participate in this forum and learn from the masters :D

    Experimentation on macro resulted in this image. I was trying to get the sun behind the stigma of the hibiscus flower, but couldn't get it perfectly :) Thanks for viewing.
    Interesting cloud pattern which i saw during the Venus transit :)
    Due to our natural instinct for protection, we humans naturally tend to focus on the negatives of a person more than the positive. Just wanted to portray the same in the image :) This is the negative effect of Tulsi plant.(One of the mode in my P&S  :( ) Was deeply fascinated by the colours :D C&C welcome. Thanks for viewing.

    Firstly, i am not sure whether this image fits in this forum :? On second thoughts, this image was made at Mekedatu during the evening hours. The first thought that popped out of my mind, when i saw the shadow, was the evolution of the greatest mind on the planet. Also, for me, the stone like structure resembled the Stone Age  :)  Lets hope this will be the evolution of every photography enthusiast as well  :) Eager to know your suggestions :)
    Magical play of light at MekedaTu  :)
