Refuse to be ordinary

Bandipur National Park is an established Tiger Reserve, but it is also an amazing place to watch birds. This particular day as we were eagerly trying to locate some big cats, this beauty decided to get our attention. He was just still and serene, while the slow breeze was making the leaves around dance. After leisurely posing for this shot, he decided to show his flying skills too. It was quiet a sight to watch the him glide – oh, so majestically.

Twilight Colors at Crater Lake

The collapse of the Mount Mazama around 7,700 years ago, led to the formation of the crater which is now famously known as the Crater Lake. If I had to encapsulate Crater lake in a single frame this would be it. The crater, the volcanic remains on the rim, wizard island, serene lake, the gnarled tree showing age – love it all. The sunset was behind me, but the twilight colors and its reflections on the lake was just mesmerizing. After couple of different composition ended up with this panorama of two horizontal shots. Thought the pseudo square composition would lend well to the scene. I loved this off road spot so much that I ended up spending the reminder of the evening out there :) Though this is not the classical cliché shot with deep blue colors of crater lake, something keeps pulling me back to this. How do u like it ?!!!

Twin trees @ the Tetons

The Grand Teton National Park – as the name suggest is awesomely grand ! The jagged, craggy peaks of the Tetons are quiet magnificent  by themselves. Really enjoyed this place as we drove thru for our Yellowstone visit. Made a note to myself that one day would need to get back to Teton for, may be a week just to get soaked in her beauty.

As much as I would like to have been there for the early morning golden light, that afternoon did not disappoint either. The quick storm, that was fast approaching, created the dynamic lighting for the below shot. Really loved the way the sun lit up the foreground , while the storm was brewing back at the mountains. Hope u like the same as much as I do !
