Morning walking silhouette

Silhouette: a drawing of the outline of an object; filled in with some uniform color.

A shot close to the previous spot. This was again clicked around Pashupatinath temple. I'm going to refer to this particular location as the misty passage. The place was really dynamic as in the colors, lighting, visibility et all changed with every passing minute - what a treat. I would just wait for a while and the place would look completely different from how it was few minutes ago. Talk about being at the right place at the time! :-)

Man and a monkey

For the past couple of months, I have been hopping at different places in and around Kathmandu clicking photographs. It's been really fun. The clicking spree wouldn't be completing without a photowalk at Pashupati - arguably the most important Hindu shrine for Hindus in Nepal and around the world.

It's pretty cold these days in Kathmandu and the city is dissolved in mist all morning. For a week or so I've been thinking of going out and clicking some 'misty' shots. And today finally went out to do just so. Me and a friend wandered around Pashupatinath temple for around two hours in the early misty morning. The above is one of the first shots clicked. More coming up.

Almost blooming

A random shot from the garden. These flowers are the prettiest thing there right now as winter takes a toll on all other flowers.

Had to take quite a few shots before capturing the shine. No photoshop involved :-)

Soften filter applied with Picnik.

With a nudge from a friend, I decided to go take some images in the garden earlier today. So loaded my Sigma 70-300mm macro lens and spent an hour or so looking for subjects in the backyard. This is the first shot from a series.
