Its been a while that Zi and I had been to any place. She had an work-off this 1st may owing to Maharashtra worker’s day. So we packed our stuff in the morning and headed towards Sanjay Gandhi National Park. It takes only 15 minutes on two-wheeler to reach there from my place, but the park opens only around at 8am for normal visitors. Thankfully being a state holiday national park’s entry was open and plus it was free for the very day.
Earlier plan was to b there for morning hours, walk, do some photography, and get the hell out of there before sun rises further up in the sky. But once you are here because of the all the greenery around, one doesn’t feel so hot. For the same reason we ended up spending half of the day there.
I was particularly shooting for all the flower bloom that was there from the onset of summer. Wherever I saw yellow and red were the colours. Even the road sides were full of fallen yellow flowers. As we walked, the mixed scent of those flowers filled our lungs.
I know the red flowers are called Gulmohar in our native language. For a long time I was in a delusion that even the yellow flowers are also a type of gulmohar, just the colours are different. Now I know they are not but sadly I don’t know what those flowers are called. In fact they are more widely seen compared to the red Gulmohars. I should say thanks to my friend Ganesh because of him I went out to shoot these flowering trees. In his last post he spoke about the summer and yellow flowers tree at his place. And this made me to shoot the summer at my place.And what would be a greater place to shoot some flora and fauna than the park itself?!!!
So off we went to shoot these flowering trees, but of course I snapped at other things too. Maybe out of 100 shots below are the ones which came pretty good.
This frame at left is taken as ‘The Average Jim’ might take. Nah, he’s too good in such kind of portraits. I am just learning. In case you are wondering what I m blabbering feel free to visit his blog here.
Here I tried to shoot like how he does, the background light source, which makes an aura kind of thing around the subject. Having that glow around but at the same time maintain sharpness and focus on the subject.
Having spoken this and all above I would rather leave you all, alone with my images to decide if I have done a fair job or not.
As usual, do comment on my pictures or how I m doing, anything which would help me doing better than this.
See you all later, till then do take care….
