Tears of Nature

Tears of Nature

 

Sometimes one can find the best photographs when one least expects them. My hopes of getting a good shot were almost drowned as I got drenched by monsoon showers. As the rains subsided, the enchanting smell of the earth after the monsoon showers got my hopes back up a little. As I waded through wet leaves, this particular one caught my fancy.

People say I need expensive lenses to truly capture the beauty of closeup photography, but all I needed was patience and faith in my Nikon 18-55mm.

Violet. Yellow. Crimson. Indigo. Flowers come in more colors than the human mind can possibly comprehend. Fragile but bewitching, these lovely little creatures can touch the innermost strings of the heart and play a silent melody which only Mozart could match.

I took this photo in the mystical country of Thailand. Amidst golden palaces and lushious lawns, I found this beautiful amalgamation of petals growing silently, drawing attention effortlessly.

The Gateway to Heaven. This photo was taken in the fourth month of the thirteenth year of the twenty first century.  Tucked away among the lush green hills of Darjeeling, this picture was clicked from the peak of tiger hill. Waking up at four in the morning to the maddening sound of the relentless alarm, rubbing my reddish eyes and driving sleepishly on the bumpy road and waiting impatiently for the thich dense clouds to clear and the glaring sunlight to kiss the peaks of these magnificent mountains were all worth it for this one photograph. It was after an entire month that the skies were finally so clear and the mountains had come out of its lair.  My efforts had finally come to fruition. I silently sat there gazing at this marvel while others were wildly clicking photos with their miniscule flashes, thinking it would illuminate this colossal wonder. The gusty peaks, the ivory snow, the blurry fog and the cozy dazzling rays of the sun are what made me fall in love with this divine sight.
