Kaas Plateau (Kaas Pathar) of flowers, Satara (2013) [Part 1 of 2]

:: Destinations – India: Kaas Plateau of Flowers (2013) [Part 1 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)

This June, on the 22nd/23rd, it was to be the Northern (Summer) Solstice and the day also coincided with the full moon at its closest point to the earth, giving rise to the ‘Super Moon’ phenomenon!. Having known this, it was something not to be missed…and so, here are pictures from the collection showing our closest celestial neighbor!

Spring/Summer in Pune (2008-10)

May 2008

:: Galleries – Nature: Seasons – Spring

Spring is that time of our planetary cycle, when Nature comes alive after the cold period of wintery weather. And, you just have to look around – or outside, depending on where you are – to see the bounty of nature greet you. Here are pictures from shots taken at various times just hoping to capture the beauty as best as possible.

Autumn colors are well-known to many, but Spring is equally, if not more, spectacular! Keep watching this space, as capturing Spring colors, is just turning into a hobby for me!
