Theme : Long exposure photography with neutral density filters & magic of monsoon.
Description : The state I live in, is Maharashtra. Popularly called the land of rocks. Mostly true as major land form is evolved from volcanic eruptions millions of years back. You’ll find the beauty of nature mostly in the monsoon & later. But in summer the rocks dominate the landscapes.
The entire ranges of Sahyadri wear the green costumes and presents the hidden beauty. Then how come the nature will not ornate the land of rocks? She flows with the water streams and the rocks wear the white necklace. Full of joy the romance continues for 4 months, one day the clouds return offering a ring of rainbow in the fingers of the Earth, promising to come again next year.
This divine play continues, year after year. Few find them to frame it. I was one of them, this year.
