Impressions Of The Lost World : Sands Of Time..
None of the images I created in Corbett were actually preconceived, they kept on happening as a larger impression of Corbett formed in my mind and in my heart. I wish I could think of a photo story, but as those who have experience of shooting in Corbett would perhaps agree that this year every plan would have successfully failed :-), the elephants were at places where we did not expect, a larger portion of the habitat changed as well, the time of the movement of the elephants too had changed. It was difficult to adapt to such changes so fast, but the impression of this change had already cast a big shadow in the mind. The images were only rains from the clouds of thoughts formed under the open skies of Dhikala.....
While working on the theme Impressions of the lost world, I learned to work with a free mind, may be a few seconds before making this image too I did not realize that this was happening. But as my eyes saw the lovely gait of the tusker, the gradual movement of the trunk walking on the boulders and sands near the water body, I shivered in excitement.....never imagined an impression of an elephant against such settings, as I kept on panning at an extremely slow shutter speed, I only prayed that I did not pan too fast, I had to get the trunk defined at least....well, I came up this one and am extremely happy to share this you all in the forum.
Thoughts are just like waves, when they begin to form, they keep forming and the making of this image led me to create a couple of more impressions : the name for the theme too appeared then....IMPRESSIONS FROM THE LOST WORLD....will share those images very soon.
Extremely sorry and apologize to all of you for posting two consecutive panning images....
