Photography is a hobby, creativity is a passion. I try to capture as much as my mind can see and would love to read about your comments, whether negative or positive about what I click. I try to capture beyond the imagination of our eyes and am a bit instinctive about what I do. That said, I do often think through a photo, at times putting the shoot in my mind.
I love a beautiful sunset, a stunning sunrise, lightstreams, night long-exposure shots, macros, landscapes, an eye-catching expression and so many other incredible stuff that fellow photographers and friends in the Photographic community upload daily. I'm obsessed with the beauty on display on the web!
Oh yes, and the mountains! My heart is in the beauty of the Himalayas, its fantastic peaks, deep valleys, the serenity and the peace. The perfection!
I work in the Learning solutions industry that allows me to travel and I vacation as much as I can. Delhi, my city, is a photographer's delight so its always fun to venture out with my camera to take shots. I must confess most of my macros are taken inside my office cabin, I love it that much!
Oh, and the hardware, of course, without which none of what I see or capture with my eyes would be visible to others. A great and user friendly Olympus E-520 with a super 14-42mm and a 40-150 mm pair of lens. I love my Manfrotto tripod to death and try and carry it whereever my roaming evening eyes go! I'm on the lookout for an additional lens, perhaps a 300 mm Zuiko. When I find one, you'll see for sure! ;-)
UPDATE: I did buy that 70-300 mm Zuiko lens and I love it!! I use it for my nature close-ups. That said, my 14-42 mm lens is still my most used!
Ladakh is a high altitude desert located in the middle of the Himalayas, adjoining Tibet. By "high" I mean the average height here is 12,500 feet. This image is a view of Tso Kar, "Tso" meaning lake and the path you see on the left is the "road" leading to the camp-site where we spent the night. Tso Kar is located at an altitude of 14,000 feet and breathing here was difficult, thought not as much as in Tso Moriri. The landscape is arid and desert scrub and the lake itself is salt water and filled with brine. Its a great location for wildlife sightings and my Photography group took photos of the Kiang or Tibetan Ass, Brahmini Duck, Marmots, Golden Eagle amongst others.
"Changthang" means Northern Plains in Tibetan as this plateau is an extension of the Tibetan Plateau that starts further to the east.
