Just after the hailstorm...

Dhundhi, June 2006

A day well spent at Dhundhi. The trek for the day was cancelled due to severe weather conditions. A good part of the day was spent either in the dining tent or inside the sleeping bag.

Bakkarthach Camp- Panorama

Beaskund-Bakkarthach, June 2006.
Nikon D50

Today as I complete five years of my professional life (and five years @ Adobe), I dedicate this photograph to this wonderful thing called Photoshop :). The panorama was created by stitching four photographs (all shot at same exposure) using Photomerge in Photoshop CS2. Though the stitched photo does have some flaws but it's still far far better than I expected it to be.

Five years, I still can't believe it's five loong years since I landed in this place, the longest I have been at a place. And lot has transpired in these years, a lot...

symphony in yellow...

Beaskund June 2006.

An omnibus across the bridge
Crawls like a yellow butterfly
And, here and there, a passer-by
Shows like a little restless midge.

Big barges full of yellow hay
Are moored against the shadowy wharf,
And, like a yellow silken scarf,
The thick fog hangs along the quay.

The yellow leaves begin to fade
And flutter from the Temple elms,
And at my feet the pale green Thames
Lies like a rod of rippled jade.

-Oscar Wilde

Portrait of man's best friend...

On the way to Bakkarthach
June 2006

The dog kept us company for the trek from Dundi to Bakkarthach. It used to go for a short nap every twenty minutes or so. It was while one of those naps that I woke it up and clicked this shot.

the much wished for star trail...

Bakkarthach, June 2006
12:30 am till 2am!

It was freezing cold outside at 2 am in the morning but somehow managed to get my camera on a tripod for an hour and a half exposure to get this much wished star trail!

We had planned three nights at Bakkarthach to get the star trails but the weather didn't seem to be with us (atleast in the first few days). The skies got clear one fine night though it didn't look like when I went to sleep at 9 pm. Thanks to Kunal, Vibhor and Drupad who woke me up at midnight when the skies cleared up.

I would cherish this shot for years to come! [:)]
