She was willing to get herself photographed look at her, even the heard is moving ahead she is still looking, She was not afraid of the camera. I was photographing there movements when they were passing by the road. “Dhangar” the shepherd people of Maharashtra, India. these people grow lambs and cattle’s to make their living, largely spread in Maharashtra’s Pune, Ahemadnagar and Nashik districts. They used to migrate in summer for water and food for there cattle’s and lambs. So many days of the year they make camps open to sky.
Exactly year ago I photographed this Mango Tree at Lake Valdevi, now again i went to the same place to get the different mood of this alone Mango tree, but me or Mango tree, someone among us was unfortunate, as the tree was completely dead. This image is the Tribute to the dead Mango Tree.
It was 7.30am in the morning, I dropped my son at his school and went ahead for my routine location scout nearby Nashik, I decided to take this unknown road, just went ahead ignoring the bumps, stones and dust on the way, and reached this place at 7.45am walked for some 100 meters distance as there was no road ahead can’t take my car ahead a SUV could have made it, and here I reached this serene place. Found this alone mango tree fighting his own solitude.
It was 8 a.m.; the cool breezy morning has touched my soul. The sky was cool blue, atmosphere clear though there were some clouds in the sky. it was refreshing sparkling grass, and mountains in the backdrop, everything in the scene was glowing with the golden morning light. I was alone experiencing the thrill of driving and photographing the nature there, I shot almost 100+ images around this place, each one has unique character, when I came back the cars hatch door was full of dust.
This amazing serene place is approx. 10 kilometers from Nashik, you need to churn down some rough road, and rough, dusty terrain to get there. I tend to document the landscapes & city-scapes around the city.
Stone Row, a landscape at Deccan, fortunately or unfortunately we reached this location in the last monsoon season, here in INDIA. We have planned something different location, but due delay caused by road distractions we decided to move on this location, and yes it worked very well.
