There she is with brightness around her to make me blind...there she is, the lightness of being which throws me into the dark corners of happiness......
The light that is showered upon her is too bright to make her visible but she is not the one in darkness. Mind blowing stuff struck gold mine in Bharatpur this time. The fruits of being persistent.

This is just brilliant, Ganesh! I'm just wondering how good this will look on a bigger resolution(my laptop screen is not giving justice to the image). Very well seen and captured, Ganesh. TFS

If i remember, i told you when i saw it on LCD that this is a "Striking Image" ... you were not sure that day. An image that lasts in our mind for long long time.

oh, god! what am I seeing! This is something only you can visualise and execute. Would love to spend an hour in front of huge print of this image.

This is really exquisite GaneshAnna!!! The mind can wander thru the frame and still have a sense of sheer bliss and tranquility...I know why you retained this in color...but wud love to see a monotone also for this one... will the mind respond equally in that case? will it be able to evoke the same emotions? guess it will be a good learning experience...

Beautiful Picture Ganesh. The aura amongst the glitter looks simply mystical to me...Well, thats your magic Sir... Brilliant image.

The most memorable image of the lot, Ganeshanna... I just wish I could "see" even half of what you generally "see"... just fantastic!

Its a brilliant image to say the least! Stunning concept and a lovely execution. Even a slightly better definition of the heron would ruin the feel of this image. How the mind likes to wander around this image!

Abhisek, I did try B&W but the bird kind of loses its identity among other grey pixels, so decided against it.

Ganesh I'm Khadir"ed". The image is further amplification of your oof flamingos at Khadir last year. Going past the visibilities tracing their ineffability is evolution in seeing. It catches me in a space warp where I can't tell what's running into what in a batik like sense. Interestingly it is revealed that eyes are not just for precipitative in seeing , but for dissolution as well.
great lessons keep coming from Bharatpur. Probably they will keep coming long after the birds have left.
Thanks for sharing

Brilliant image sir. It instantly reminded me one of your own creation. At first glance I could only see the beautiful BG, after looking at the title i saw the heron. Ever since then, it is growing in my mind. Do you think little more room at the top left would add?

Best Regards,

Hi Ganesh, I just love this presentation, very well executed. It can only be appreciated on a large print. Agree with you on the B&W. Thanks for sharing.
