For the last hour,I have watching the partial solar eclipse, explaining the phenomenon to Samhith, and trying to get a reasonably good photograph.Success at last!!! Guess what I used to take these pics!!!
















Beautiful, isn't it???

  2. @AJCL: hey, u dont sound silly at all!!!! in fact, the sun was so bright that the eclipse which i could see thru dark glasses wasnt even visible when i took pics... i tried all sorts of things to reduce the brightness but to no avail.... even tried taking a pic thru the glasses!!!

    finally, i was looking at some pics on the net of people gathered to see the eclipse and there was a pic there of a child with a photofilm... that gave me an idea and i tried it out.. even then, one layer of the film wasnt enough... as u can see, the more the layers, the better is the pic!!

  5. I too tried to capture the eclipse between a day full of taking classes. I managed to take it by clicking the reflection though my office window and missing lunch :D

    Loved the hue of your pictures.

The Havelis of Bikaner - A Photo Post

The lanes are narrow , twisting and turning amidst buildings old and new. Crumbling old structures with intricate workmanship stand side by side with art deco buildings, and more modern constructions, which follow no particular style. Autos, bicycles, motorcycles and vans rush past, blowing their horns as loudly as possible, while cows saunter past peacefully, completely unaffected by the noise. In the midst of all this chaos, children play by the side, and women go about their chores, as we explore these by-lanes of Bikaner, and its beautiful Havelis. Facade of one of the Rampuria Havelis

Kabini Part 2 - A Boat Ride

The river Kabini is the heart of the Nagarhole National park, and a boat ride on the river is an integral part of the stay at the Kabini River Lodge. The incessant, unseasonal rainfall had marked our stay so far, and heading to the jetty for our boat ride on our second evening at the lodge, we kept our fingers crossed, hoping for clear skies.  The Jetty... at the Kabini River Lodge

Kabini Part 3 - After the Rains

Visiting Kabini in peak summer, we hadn’t bargained for the rains, which dominated our three days at the Lodge. While animal sightings were understandably lesser than usual, seeing the forest in the rain was an interesting experience in its own way. However, as we headed back into the forest for our second and third safaris, we hoped the rains would let up, and allow us to see more animals! Winding jungle paths
