Though The Trees, India.
This was shot during my last Landscaping expedition. We were up early after shooting the rising sun, the mist, clouds, I was still hungry for more as always, and yes there were few great Frames found that day!
Mango Tree, a Bird’s Eye View, I was there to shoot an architectural site, so I need to climb on a water tank, built over the building, when I look beneath I saw this beautiful mango tree with full bloom of new leaves this spring season, the colors and pattern it has adopted made this image beautiful piece of art.
Solitude, I have been always fascinated by alone trees, this one i had found on our trek to Mount Ghanchakkar, a very big mountain in north of Western Ghats. In Marathi Ghanchakkar means big mad round, on this big trek I found this image, one of the exotic scenic location in the Western Ghats. The day was clear with a good visibility as these days it is very hard to find a clear day here in India with growing industrialization the pollution is on the rise. Monsoon was just over there were green patches along with some wild flowers on the Lateritic plateau. The sky was quite clear, though there were some thunder clouds to support this beautiful composition.
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.
