Remembering the Eagle Eye

A quick trip back to Chikmagalur’s Eagle Eye Resorts. A resort we had been to at the beginning of this year. A lovely place, beautiful view and very enjoyable time.
Apart from the photographs from my Canon DSLR, I took some from my Motorola Phone too and I am glad that they came out very well. All these photographs were taken from my phone.

Posted for Julie’s Travel Photo of the week.

Modified the post to include the same for Sylvain’s weekly theme of Sunset too (I got a lovely Sunset photograph in there, you see)

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

“Rushing into action, you fail.
Trying to grasp things, you lose them.
Forcing a project to completion,
you ruin what was almost ripe.

Therefore the Master takes action
by letting things take their course.
He remains as calm at the end
as at the beginning.
He has nothing,
thus has nothing to lose.
What he desires is non-desire;
what he learns is to unlearn.
He simply reminds people
of who they have always been.
He cares about nothing but the Tao.
Thus he can care for all things.”
― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

For this week’s word photography, I will go with my already published image which is also my current favorite.

Natural Timing

I know that this view of western ghats from Chikmagalur trip has already been in my posts. But this one is from my phone. It looks so different from those photos I took in my Canon and yet its just the same and beautiful too. Don’t you think? It doesn’t have a perfect histogram, and it isn’t very sharp, there is a slight shakiness to it (it was taken in the evening just before the sunset when I hadn’t yet unpacked my camera). But I felt that this photograph had a natural painting like quality to it without any editing done to it. Or it could be that nature is always so beautiful that irrespective of how you capture it, it will always look good.

“Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have somone click the shutter.”

Belur

While coming back from Chikmaglur, we did a quick stop at Belur’s Chennakasava Temple, a place known for its beautiful Hoysala Architecture. Here is a small set of photographs of the architectural beauty.

WPC: Scale

During our trip to Chikamaglur, I took this picture where a pigeon was sitting on the wings of the giant sized Eagle statue (the name of the resort was Eagle Eye Resorts and hence the huge Eagle). I think this photograph qualifies for this week’s photography challenge prompt: Scale. What do you think ?

Reminiscing the Trip

I am leaving on a weekend trip to my hometown. So I will be OOWP (out of wordpress) for two days. Before I leave, here are some pictures from our Chikmagulur Trip.
Resort: Eagle Eye Resorts.

I still have another place to cover, which I will do next week. Until Monday, Happy Blogging and Keep Safe.
