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

Have you tasted cocoa fresh from a fruit? Tastes so nice. Got an opportunity to taste it in Chikamagalur during our plantation visit.

Nothing beats the fresh air of the mountains during a early morning trek. This was taken during my first trek in Wayanad.
For this week’s photography challenge: Reward
My kind of reward for my hardwork would be the time I spend with nature 🙂 (and friends) , be it in a beach enjoying the cold waters,
or a hilly area , where I can relax with my feet up , after a climb.
But, sometimes, a simple thing like a glass of sparkling wine is more than sufficient 😉
