A few memories, sentiments and tales of my travels mainly in India, an attempt at photography, and at times, some reflections on other topics.
Tributary of Teesta
Turquoise Rangeet flows
Wow! How did you get such a top view?? Were you perched on the topmost branch of a tall tree ;)
The turquoise colour is almost unreal - how beautiful! Your Haiku goes with the photograph perfectly.
Lovely meshing of word and image. Perfect calm.
Lovely shot, quite stunning.Next post of staithes posted.
Ahhhh - one of my most favourite places world - the mountains of North Bengal! I have passed through this place many times (I believe this is where the Rangeet meets with the Teesta), but never seen the waters so tranquil.
Lovely pic. Did u hike up?
Priyank,Not perched, I was swinging around trees..LOL. ;)This picture was shot from the heights of a mountain road. The SUV driver was not too happy to stop there as it was a narrow two-way mountain road with no barriers. At such a spot, I had to really rush with a few shots in a matter of few seconds.
Kate,Welcome to my space and thank you for your sweet words. I had a peek at your blog. It's filled with wonderful stuff. I shall pay a longer visit again. :)
San,Thank you. Yes, calming effect of the beautiful placid waters. :)
imac:A compliment from the photographer means much. Thank you. :)
Ananda,I shot this picture on the way to the town of Jorethang, the Southern part of Sikkim, while I was returning from Yuksom to Darjeeling.I recall admiring the meeting point of Teesta with Rangeet from the heights of that mountain road in amazement, however, can't remember the name of the place. I also remember very well the colour-difference in the waters of the two rivers (blue-white of Teesta and turquoise of Rangeet).Let me stop before I get too carried away with wonderful memories and make this comment section sound like a post.
AjeyaYes, I did. In fact, I was returning to Darjeeling after a 8 day trek from Yuksom to the base of Mt. Kanchenjunga.It's referred as a trek to Goecha-la passing via Tshoka, Dzongri, Kokchurang, Thangsing, Lamuney, Lake Samiti and beyond. You might wish to google on it. I have posted some scattered pictures on it in this blog as well. :)
Its simply fabu Celine.. Nice Haiku with awesome pic.. very nice..
Nice to see this wonderful pic again!And lovely lines :)Btw,I am not able to get the seasonal word here!
Pijush,Thank you. :)
Sameera,Thank you. :)If you meant the seasonal word in the Haiku, I guess Haiku rules have changed over time. The nature/seasonal word is not a must anymore. In fact, even the 5-7-5 syllable rule is not a necessity anymore, though I try to go at least by that. Call it modern Haiku! ;)
Ha ha!Okie...Yeah the syllable count is perfect.In fact I had referred yours to verify when I wrote my first one!Season or not,your every Haiku is a tribute to nature's beauty :)
It is indeed very beautiful scene with that turquoise blue water. And I know now that you went up there, so no more questions on that.I don't know why my reader wasn't showing your new posts, so thought of coming here & check. What did I see? so many posts. :)
Sameera,Thank you very much for the kind words. :)
cuckoo:There seems to be a problem. I can't quite figure out why I do not receive notices of all comments to my mail inbox. I'll check on it after I return from my holidays. And, thank you very much for your kind comments. :)
beautiful pic cela..
It is amazing how things look so serene from above.
what a beautiful blue..did you shoot it from a tree ? Just joking as the aerial view is amazing .
Awesome! Did you take this pic?
anil p:It indeed is, and it seems all the more so because of the height while shooting the picture. :)
backpakker:Thank you very much. :)
Shantanu,Thank you. Of course I shot this picture. And 2 others of the River as well (if you wish to check the link at the top of this post above the picture). :)
This is simply amazing. One of the best shots I have seen in the recent times.It reminded me of the picture post cards of Naini Lake.
Ram,Thank you. You made my day!I'm delighted that you liked it so much.:)
