Weekly Photo Challenge- The Golden Hour

I tried to take a new photograph for this week’s photo challenge but it’s been grey and cloudy skies day after day and no hint of any shades of sunset or the sun. So I decided to go with a photo I took a year ago. I clicked it while travelling to Mookambika temple in Karnataka.

For those who haven’t seen in already I’ve included two other photos I posted before that was taken around the time of sunset.

 

View

I chose these pics for today’s Daily Prompt : Distance

The view of the Malampuzha Gardens from the halfway point before reaching the top of the dam. If you look closely you can see the rope-way which passes over the garden and a canal.

The view from the top of Malampuzha Dam, Palghat. The river follows through parts of the Western Ghats mountain range.

The Last Flowers

These flowers only bloom for a month or two every year. The one in the photo was one of the last three of this year’s batch. Now have to wait a year to see these guys again.

P.S  I was told that this is a kind of Lilly. If anyone knows the name then please let me know.

Streets

Daily Prompt: Photographers  show us OUTSIDE.

I took this photo while going for a drive with my dad. Even though it’s a little blurred there is something I like about this photo. The blurriness makes it look like everything is moving  or changing. This kind of fits seeing how fast this city is developing. When I moved here 10 years ago this was a small town with old buildings and the outer areas that where all under development.

This street in the photo used to look dull with just a few streetlights here and there, potholes and only a few shops. The other side of the road is a huge pond. Within a span of a couple of years the road and the rest of the city got a makeover. The street is one of the best drives now. The road is smooth, the area with the pond resembles a small park and shopping complexes have come up on the other side.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

For this week’s Photo Challenge I chose a photo of my High School.

What it reminds me of are my friends. High School was somewhat of a painful experience. The only good thing that happened to me there was the friends I made. Infact that is one thing I cherish the most about that place .  Five years later we still remain the best of friends.

This photo is of the school corridors where we used to spent time during breaks –  laughing,joking and making fun of each other.

Twilight

No, not the one with the sparkling vampires. The natural twilight – soft glowing light from the sky when the sun is below the horizon.

Took this photo sometime last week just a few minutes after sunset. I haven’t done any editing other than cropping he photo a little bit. It looked beautiful as it is so didn’t see any need for adjustments.
