Excellent work here Vikram…
Thank you so much George! Those dark clouds spilled all about 5 mins later!

beautifully dramatic and moody!
Thank you so much Micklyn! Yep – dark broody skies are more interesting than clear blue skies. Though I wish I’d had more of those boring blue skies on this holiday!
Gorgeous capture my friend. Was this before or after the monsoon? Such a simple composition. Well done.
Thank you so much my friend. I find it easier to do simple compsitions :-)Sept is towards the end of the monsoon season so it rains intermittently throughout the day (well I should say thunderstorms lasting about an hour with heavy winds) … I’ve got a shot coming up some time soon that will show you the fury and beauty of of the monsoons.
Beautiful tones, awesome lighting. :)
Thank you so much Lynn …. monsoons give you the most amazing (and unpredictable) lighting!
sweet! – good holiday?
Yep! Despite this scene – I still managed to get sun-burn. Was blessed to be under shelter for most of the deluge(s). Every time I thanked my stars for picking up the Kata bag with the waterproof cover – I got a little wet, but my gear would have survived no matter what.
Oh, nice!! love the sky and composition. Welcome back! :-)
Cheers George!! Tons of moody skies (sadly no overly dramatic sunsets :-( …. but we had a great time!)
beaut work Vik:))
Cheers RO! Am so pleased that you like it.
Love the feeling you have in this shot and the isolation by focus.
Thank you so very much Peter. Means a lot coming from you – your BW work is impeccable!
Terrific work, Vikram :-) (I hug the mojo)
:-)))) – don’t squeeze too hard!Had great fun shooting this time – just shot without over-thinking!
Great affect the long exposure had on everything that surrounds your subject.
Yep – it’s a pain to shoot IR on the D80 as it necessitates long exposures … but the plus side is the wonderful movement that gets captured too.
