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!
This remarkable sunrise was captured as-is with no editing! Chakrata is located in the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand, north-west of Dehra Dun. Due to military activity in the area, foreigners are not allowed in this part of the country. The altitude here is 7000 ft and the winter climate is harsh, with sub-zero temperatures at the time of taking this shot.
