“Always be like a water. Float in the times of pain or dance like waves along the wind which touches its surface.”

PS: Taken in Chinnar during our trek. First photograph is my attempt at waterfall model. There wasn’t much water in the river so it was little difficult to try it. But nevertheless I did try 😉

 

Through the trees

I have this habit of trying to photograph the Sunlight through the trees or in other words called as Komorebi. ( Komorebi is a Japanese word that roughly translates to “sunlight shining through the leaves of trees.”) During our trek in Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Munnar, Kerala, India, where the sun was at its high at 9 am, I tried that and it didn’t come out as well as it did in another komorebi shot. I couldn’t see the outcome of the photograph well with the sun on my face and I didn’t want to slow down and try again because my friend was almost half cooked by then. But when I used that not-quite-good photograph and applied some effects from Photo Mania, this is what I got.

And I kind of liked the outcome and the way the effect went well with the photograph.

And oh! here is the original

Unmoved

“ The mountain remains unmoved at seeming defeat by the mist.”
― Rabindranath Tagore

PS: Taken on the way back from Munnar trying to beat the evening mist from blocking our path through the ghats.

Miracle of lace

“Two Trees
A portion of your soul has been
entwined with mine
A gentle kind of togetherness, while
separately we stand.
As two trees deeply rooted in
separate plots of ground
While their topmost branches
come together,
Forming a miracle of lace
against the heavens.”
― Janet Miles, Images of Women in Transition


Posting it for SL-Week’s photography challenge for this week, which has the theme: Ground.
