Why Shooting Star Trails is Awesome

This shot could have been the best of the lot, if it wasn't for those damn clouds which kept passing over the monument. This image is a compilation of only 60 photos, it was originally supposed to have had about 150 photos put together.

For over a month now, I have been stagnant and not living out of a suitcase, which has been a blessing in-fact. During this period, I have been able to re-organize myself, my workflow, test my new camera equipment, learn some new things and I even launched my newly re-designed website which is looking fantastic.

Hampi Landscapes in 60 Minutes

After an action packed 2 days in Bengaluru shooting the first leg of The Third Eye Tour, our next brief stop was at Hampi, something I was keenly looking forward to on this tour.

My visit to Ladakh this time was for an expedition to set a record for Stand Up Paddling in higher altitudes. Nevertheless, the expedition provided some amazing opportunities to witness mind blowing sceneries and an opportunity to capture stunning imagery, although I am not sure if I did full justice to that.

Ladakh - Captivating Landscapes [Part -1]


I had been desiring and dreaming about Ladakh for the last 3 years. I had seen tons of beautiful pictures, had heard many stories and adventures of intrepid travelers, photographers, trekkers, hikers and bikers riding through some of the highest mountain passes and brisking their way past the serene monasteries and landscapes of the region. For people, who don't know much about Ladakh, Ladakh is also known as the "Land of the High Passes" and is a part of the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir.
