A Walk In The Park – Satpura

A Walk In The Park – Satpura

This article has appeared in Huffington Post titled ‘Beast And Bureaucrats: A Trip To Satpura National Park’. You may see the original post here. You would be all-too-familiar with the traits of a typical wildlife enthusiast. His ears pricked like an Alsatian’s, for a real or imagined call of a monkey or a swamp deer; while his eyes would dart around like a sleuth’s, spotting slightest movement in the environs. His tongue, dry and lips chapped, but he is unlikely…

Travel Photography Nightscape

Travel Photography Nightscape

Equipment: EOS 60D  EF-S10-22mm  f/3.5-4.5 USM EXIF: 12mm  f/3.5  10sec  ISO 100 Travel Photography Nightscape – Sydney In Travel Photography, nightscape is a desirable shot. Many-a-times, for lack of a vantage or opportunity, it doesn’t work out so well. Not so for my visit to Sydney. Even before booking a hotel, I went to Google Maps and figured out a hotel with a great vantage, as being there would surely accord me the opportunity. Shangri-La passed muster and that’s where I…

Orphaned Elephants – Yogis in my life

Orphaned Elephants – Yogis in my life

Yogi – A School Mascot Many years back, a friend had approached us for help. She was a part of a non-profit organisation that used to help animals in distress. She sought help for an orphaned elephant they had named Yogi. Yogi was a couple of months old. And we were told that as babies, elephants are totally dependent on mother’s milk for full 2 years. So, Yogi was completely on Cerelac and Lactogen diet. And though he was a…

Travel Photography of Twins from Two Eras

Travel Photography of Twins from Two Eras

This feature is appearing in June 2015 issue of Smart Photography, India’s premier Photography magazine.  Travel Photography of Twins from Two Eras These twins were born a millennium apart and they hardly look identical! I refer to Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar – the most improbable of the twin cities in India. Ahmedabad came about in 11th Century as Ashaval  (or Ashapalli ), while Gandhinagar was designed, planned and developed by two Indian assistants of Le Corbusier (made famous in India as the architect of…

Travel Photography – Wildlife

Travel Photography – Wildlife

Equipment:      EOS 60D  EF70-200mm f/2.8L USM EXIF:              200mm  f/4.5  1/40sec  ISO 250 Capturing wildlife requires a lot of patience and some amount of quick thinking. While you can get a lot of snapshots once you spot an animal, you need to think on your feet to figure out what you wish to highlight, and that’s what I would call ‘making a shot’. While covering Times Passion Trail in Kaziranga, we came across a fully-grown male rhino in the…
