Route 66 Auto Graveyard

Rather than go to a specific location for a typical landscape shoot, I set out to find photo opportunities with no set agenda. My thought was to travel west on I-40 and explore as much of Route 66 (which parallels it mostly) with my cameras as I could. One of…

Route 66 in New Mexico

These pictures were taken between 1:00 pm and 7:30 pm in July. New Mexico is given to sudden storms, high winds, and the hot sun. A heavy duty tripod is a must if you are taking landscapes. Unseasonably large volumes of rain this year have made the desert fairly green,…

Shenandoah National Park

The incredibly popular Shenandoah National Park. If you’re just driving through, Skyline Drive has many outlooks where you can pull over and marvel at the wonders of the Appalachian Mountains. If you’re hiking, there are many trails for both novices and the experienced. And of course lots of opportunity to…

Mfuwe in South Luangwa National Park

While it is impossible to give the exact coordinates of where this picture was taken, the South Luangwa National park is home to these beautiful cats – as indeed it is to a huge variety of fauna and flora. This picture was taken in the month of March. The weather…

Dead Vlei

With a sprained ankle, I found it well worth the trek – carrying cameras, lenses and tripods. And Dead Vlei is a place of magic. Watching the sun rise from behind the dunes and the completely flat and deadly dull landscape suddenly erupt into brilliant rust dunes, blue sky, black…

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli is famous for its elephants. Its famous among wildlife photographers for the iconic images of a huge tusker poised magnificently in front of Mount Kilimanjaro. While this is every visitors dream sighting, the mountain is mostly shy and hides behind clouds. And when the peak is clearly visible, you…

Dodhara Chandani Suspension Bridge

For the local residents of Dodhara-Chandani, the 1.60 m wide and 1452.96 m long pedestrian bridge is the only link to the remaining landmass of their district across the Mahakali. Before construction of the bridge, the folks of Dodhara and Chandani had to travel all the way to Khatima in…

Bends of the Dhulikhel Bardibas BP Highway

The newly completed highway offers an interesting and enticing drive with beautiful and picturesque bends. You have to be careful on your drive as the road with sharp bends is narrow and at few points it hardly accommodates two crossing vehicles. You can start from the either end of the…
