Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

I’m taking part in the weekly photo challenge after what must be eons. This week’s theme is ‘Evanescent’.¬†Evanescent is one of those words whose meaning I well understand but would have trouble explaining to someone if asked. So here’s one of the definitions of the word I found online: “soon passing out of sight, memory,…

Spotted: Grey Heron by the sea

Grey Herons are not a particularly rare kind of birds- you can spot them near water habitats- lakes, marshes and in this case on the beach. I managed to photograph this one in Seychelles a few months ago. The bird was quite focused on the fishes swimming in the water and seemed to ignore tourists…

This caught my eye..

Something about this landscape caught my eye on a walk yesterday. There was something very alluring about the three trees on a slope and the bright blue sky. There are numerous shades of blue and green and a small bench to the right of the trees on the slope. I haven’t edited the image in…

Madagascan Red Fody

It’s a rainy day here in Dubai. A few days ago on another rainy occasion I managed to snap a photograph of a beautiful little red bird called the Madagascan Red Fody (it is native to Madagascar but has been introduced to other Indian ocean islands like Seychelles and Mauritius). It was drenched in the…

Weekly Photo Challenge: A Good Match

Fireworks (yet again!)

It’s almost like this place is waiting for an excuse for fireworks. This time fireworks on The Beach at Jumeirah Beach Residences for Dubai Shopping Festival.

The many faces of Burj Khalifa

Ask anyone what they first think of when you say Dubai and the answer may just be Burj Khalifa- the world’s tallest building. It’s a fascinating building that outlines the cityline of Dubai like a heartbeat spike on a monitor. It can also put up quite a show as the entire facade of the building…

Happy New Year

A very happy, prosperous, healthy and peaceful 2017 to everyone! I was near the world’s tallest building- Burj Khalifa- last night to catch the fireworks at the break of midnight. Here’s a few glimpses  

The last full moon of 2016

Photographed a couple of weeks ago… Much was said about the supermoon in November 2016 but there was a supermoon in December 2016 as well which went by relatively unnoticed. I was out there testing my new m.Zuiko lens and was fortunate to capture this shot (unedited in any way except for cropping). This NASA…
