The Bird that got stuck in a Tree

No More Snow. Yay. Shouldn't I be starting this post with a goodbye to Winter? New York has been crazy past few months, and while, we may giggle & welcome much awaited arrival of Spring and warmer days, the cold, the craziness doesn't really get over or does it. For example, Yesterday, I must have walked about a mile in 3D capable mad rain and then waited at the station for the bus, extra drenched. ( Oh, I lost my umbrella or dropped it somewhere while shopping and dint have time to buy another, Right.) Well, While I haven't seen a single spring flower bloom yet, I would  say, A change is good, any change for the matter even if its in the form of rain. At least its no more subzero and I can put all my excuses to rest and get on with some city life finally.

spring will come and so will happiness. hold on. life will get... warmer. - anita krizzan

Contemplating Change, I think I never loved "change" as much as I do now. part of the hatred

Photographing Migratory Birds at Middle Creek Wildlife Sanctuary Pennsylvania

"A flock of geese leave their lake and take wing, turning to poems in the sky." 
~ Dr. SunWolf

Middle Creek Wildlife Sanctuary Pennsylvania USA

Bird photography is work of patience and a long lens (or not ?), The first I have acquired since my first trip to Ranganathittu in Karnataka, India back in 2010, latter, however, I haven't as yet. My kit is already heavy enough and I have no plans of expanding it, atleast for sometime now. Whether or not, I am an expert in knowing birds, or photographing 'em, I love Bird watching, also known as Birding these days. So when I got an invite from a friend to visit Middle creek wildlife management area, near Lancaster Pennsylvania, I thought why not. My long trip plan for this month was already cancelled. and this seemed like a great opportunity to go back in the wild and spend some quality time with mother nature.

Colors of Pangong Tso Ladakh, India : A Photo Essay

I was planning to publish a book review this weekend, but its taking a while. A huge book it is, Yes. Its already been a week, since I posted anything, and the fact, Its Holi tomorrow, and there is no way I'd escape the colors of the most vibrant festival on earth, Here I am dedicating this post to a magical place in the Higher Himalayas, popular world-over as the Lake of 1001 Colors.

Yes Zorro was here too...| Chang La | Ladakh | In Explore 2012-12-23You guessed it right. I am talking about Pangong Tso, or The Lake Pangong, situated at a height of about 4,350 m (14,270 ft), and running 134 km (83 mi) long extending from Ladakh India to Tibet China. Famous for its ever-changing exquisite colors, and also known as the " Lake of Great Hollow",  Pangong is a high altitude salt-water lake about 160Kms from Leh city of Ladakh, in the state of Jammu & kashmir of North India, and is reachable via road that passes through Chang La, a mountain pass and the third highest motorable road in the world. The varying colors of the crystal clear waters in the shades of green and blue, are due to the play of light, wind and the clouds.
