CityScapes – Ferris Wheel Lights

:: Abstract – Lights:CityScapes – Ferris Wheel Lights (2014)

Each summer, with the schools closed, kids in Pune enjoy their vacations, albeit probably mostly indoors to keep away from the scorching heat. However, it is also during this time, that the city witnesses the emergence of fun fairs and exhibitions, with children’s rides and games. It’s a place where families like to spend time, and play, eat and shop.

While it’s still hot then, the couple of hours that people spend here, help them enjoy and forget the heat. This year, seemingly didn’t feel that hot, and as part of my tours around the city on one weekend, I spotted one such fair along the riverside. Knowing this, it was only a matter of time, before I was keen to take my camera and capture some glimpses – and, in what has now become a favorite, I made it to the vicinity around dusk, to capture the lights of the city, the fair, and the reflections these cast on the water.

Here are the snaps from this album – hope you enjoy them.

Kaas Plateau (Kaas Pathar) of flowers, Satara (2013) [Part 2 of 2]

:: Destinations – India: Kaas Plateau of Flowers (2013) [Part 2 of 2]

Situated in the Western Ghats, the Kaas Plateau and a UNESCO Biodiversity World Heritage site, is a popular place with amazing natural beauty. Every monsoon, between August and September/October, the plateau comes alive with more than 800 species of wild flowers!

We visited in 2011 (see the album here) but unfortunately, the rains weren’t adequate in the monsoon of 2012; so we passed on a trip that year. But 2013 saw a good monsoon, and so, it was time to make a visit to this Plateau of Flowers again. However, sadly, there were a few heavy spells of rain in late Sep, and the delicate flowers were apparently affected. Even though the overall blossoms were far fewer, the scenery was fantastic.

Please note: This album is in two parts. Don’t forget to check out the other part too. (Coming soon). [I've got to update this yet...i'll get to it soon!]
