'Golkonda Fort'

This time it is a trip to the local Golkonda Fort. Though most of the fort is ruined, still the superstructure remained standing tall showcasing the ancient architecture. There are couple of ways to reach to the top of the fort.

I am glad that my first ‘Panoramic’ experiment turned out successful at this venue. Though the ‘sound n light show’ in the evening is interesting to know the history of the fort, the light level is too low to capture some good pics. AP tourism can organize that show better.

Water Droplets

This week again its a early morning walk for a usual search for bugs n birds.. But for a change was greeted by the dew on the grass at Sanjeevayya park. It is amazing trying to look through the water drops. Though not successful in capturing a flower through a water drop..yet a satisfying trip at the sacrifice of sunday morning sleep ;-)

Ganesh Festival in Hyderabad

Hyderabad (particularly the Hussain sagar lake) is very famous over the years for the ‘Ganesh festival’ and the most colorful immersion process after the festival.

Around 10,000 idols were immersed this time (I am keeping the thought of pollution aside for a second). Over a lakh of people were present at the surroundings of the lake on Saturday evening. The place was noisy, colorful and full of action..

For the first time I have been there to cover it live with my friends, who enabled me to take snaps even in the most crowded areas :-)

Journey to Srisailam

Last week I went on a tour to the places 'Nagarjuna Sagar' and 'Srisailam'. Journey was beautiful and it was a pleasure capturing the country side through my cam.

At 'Nagarjuna Sagar' the main attraction is the dam on river Krishna, which is the the tallest masonry dam in the world. But unfortunately, they closed the water gates when I was there(.

The route from here to 'Srisailam' through Nallamalai forest is amidst beautiful natural scenery through the fields, ghats and valleys. Srisailam is a sacred place of pilgrimage and is also a place of scenic beauty and one of the most important tourist spots in Andhra Pradesh.

Cranes at Hussain Sagar

This was sometime in April in Hyderabad. During my usual Sunday morning hunt for good snaps, I had a stop over at Necklace road looking at Hussain sagar water. For a moment I was totally surprised by the number of the cranes present. I never saw so many birds in hussain sagar water which otherwise is not that good. But that day there was so much of fish available and all the cranes were at their merry enjoying the amply available varieties of fish. So am I covering the good number of birds in different postures.
