Drops

It’s that time of the year again, when the chill in the air, the fragrance of wet earth, uncertainty of transportation, greenery all around is unmatched. Also a time of the year, when my observations through my camera’s view finder, get a much needed boost. Water drops never look as inviting and demanding to be captured, ever.
Just a matter of time before i resume trekking in the Sahyadris. Can’t wait to capture more drenched cobwebs and more water drops hanging on the edge:)

Pearl vision


This one was taken long back with my Canon A400. Accidentally came across it while organising my photographs after many years:) I had committed the cardinal sin of using flash for such a close range shot, a big evidence of which is visible on the leaf on the left hand side.

This was taken on my maiden overnight trek back in 2005 to Harishchandragad. Was trudging through the forest path en route the highest spot in that region. It was the rainy season and the chill in the surroundings alongwith mild drizzling interrupted by thick foggy patches was a pleasing experience. Saw this collection of water droplets between these leaves as i bent down to tie my shoe laces. Was thrilled with my shot back then, but now when i look at it, i find a million flaws. But then, what the heck, this was the most i could get out of an automatic camera:) (excuses excuses:P)

Of cloudy skies and green mountains…





The monsoons are expected to arrive soon, hopefully. I am just waiting for the drizzle to turn into heavy showers so that the ghats around Mumbai are lush green and i can resume from where i had left off two years back. Trekking in the Sahyadris.

Majority of my friends hate the monsoons, but i eagerly await them every year. Reasons are pretty obvious from the above photographs. These were taken on my last trek to Peb, near Matheran. The trek is simply breath taking, specially when you reach the top of the mountains and actually walk amidst the clouds. Very few experiences in life can match the high of walking through the clouds.

Just counting the days now. The Woodlands are ready, so is the camera and the backpack and the wind cheater. All i need is a couple of heavy showers and an early weekend morning.

Take Care,
