This is a series of silhouttes of the King of the Skies i.e. the Sun and the King of the Grasslands i.e. the Indian Grey Wolf having a inevitable relation between them. The dramatic skies, the howling wolf and the sun covering it enfolds the unseen stories hidden in these images giving some natural history moments to capture.
I love black and white because if done well, it can be more colourful than the coloured.
Monochromes erase time from the equation, giving a sense of timelessness. This is my humble attempt to freeze mammals of africa in monochrome.
Overcast sky, a windy winter morning, accompanied by the startling strokes of oars, a balanced combination of peace and commotion. This moody still was captured on a foggy and overcast morning at the Dal Lake, Srinagar.
Holi is one of the craziest and beautiful festival celebrated in India. Specially in some parts of Uttar Pradesh it is played for more than a month. Captured this beautiful picture in Nandgaon, Uttar Pradesh.
In the Misty Winter Mornings of Delhi, sunrise at a place known as Yamuna Ghat situated on the Banks of holy River Yamuna, becomes so surrealistic and cinematic that it has now become a favorite photography destination amongst the fraternity. The Migratory seagulls add on to the scene with their Poetry like Chirping. I was not left untouched by the Scenic Beauty of the place, hence I shot one of the Best Series of my Life so far.
This image was captured on my terrace when my mother was talking to someone leaning down and the cloud was passing over her and I imagined her as a cotton candy women. I took this image because, if there is one aspect of nature that everyone can see and enjoy, no matter where you live, it is the clouds. Observing them requires patience. Laying and watching the clouds teaches us to slow down and live the moment. The clouds aren’t just about learning the weather. They are a chance to imagine a whole new world.
People of a rice mill are living their lives arounds the mill where all the whole day they are spending time by stretching and pulling golden paddy to dry. Some of them are swiping and going outsides by the golden paddy lines with cycle.
Theyyam (Teyyam, Theyam or Theyyattam) is a popular ritual form of dance worship in Kerala and Karnataka. Theyyam consists of thousand-year-old traditions, rituals and customs. The people of these districts consider Theyyam itself as a channel to a god and they thus seek blessings from Theyyam.
BRAJ KI HOLI IS FAMOUSLY played in Mathura and Vrindavan, in Uttar Pradesh.
I travel there every year to witness the festivities. The celebration begins a week early
and looks quite different in the towns of Barsana and Nandgaon than the rest of the
country. Walking in the footsteps of Lord Krishna, the men of Nandgaon (Krishna’s
village) head to Barsana (Radha’s village) to play Holi; the next day, the men of Barsana
travel to Nandgaon with colours. In both the villages, the local women “beat” the
visiting young men with sticks, just like Radha and the gopis did to little Krishna. But
Lathmaar Holi (Holi of sticks) is more of a festive dance than a confrontation. On the
third day, residents of both the villages get together and head over to Vrindavan to play
Phoolon ki Holi (Holi of flowers).
this bamboo pit viper is nocturnal and the green, yellow pops in the frame and shows the beauty in black background . Used the slow shutter with rear curtain flash to capture the motion blur in the tongue flick.
This was shot on the last night on the liveaboard I stayed on. With only a handful of snorkelers in the water it felt as though I was in the right place at the right time without any interruptions or distractions. Sharing this space with a gentle giant was truly a humbling feeling. I felt reminded of the famous words by Obi-Wan Kenobi about the force, "It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.”
This image was captured when I was in beach.a woman is enjoying riding a camel with her children's and another ledy is carrying them on the camel and she's taking them for a ride. And on the other side, that couple is coming exact in that framing, so that photo looks so attractive.
A crow which got too close in the proximity of the Sarus's toddlers got caught with alarming alacricity for a bird that big in size. The Sarus just turned, swung its neck with such electrifying agility catching hold of the unaware Crow, that it had me stmped too!

\" Life wins\"
The classic chase between the two speedstars is an adrenaline driven experience.
The grace with which they run and change directions without cutting on speed is a treat to the eye.
Being in the right position helped me capture the entire sequence.
Kumbh Mela is a major pilgrimage and festival in Hinduism. It is celebrated in a cycle of approximately 12 years, to celebrate every revolution Brihaspati (Jupiter) completes, at four river-bank pilgrimage sites: Allahabad (Ganges-Yamuna-Sarasvati rivers confluence), Haridwar (Ganges), Nashik (Godavari), and Ujjain (Shipra). The festival is marked by a ritual dip in the waters, but it is also a celebration of community commerce with numerous fairs, education, religious discourses by saints, mass gatherings of monks, and entertainment.The seekers believe that bathing in these rivers is a means to prāyaścitta (atonement, penance) for past mistakes, and that it cleanses them of their sins.
“Standing in the presence of giants - an up - close encounter with the majestic elephant, a humbling reminder of power and grace of the natural world”
As the sun began to rise, little did I know that I was about to have a truly unforgettable experience, as I wandered around the Amboseli National Park with my camera, I came across an enormous elephant, his massive tusks gleaming in the sunlight. It was “CRAIG” also known as the “GENTLE GAINT”.
The 50-year-old is one of the famous and most photographed elephant in Amboseli National Park. As I approached Craig, I could feel my heart racing with excitement and anticipation, I had heard stories about his incredible power and grace, but to see one up so close was a truly humbling experience.
From just 10 feet away, I began to snap images, capturing every detail of Craig’s powerful frame and impressive tusks. I followed him capturing every moment of his journey with my camera before he disappeared into the thick bushes. Words cannot describe time spent with this gentle giant. Craig was more than just a moment in time, he will always remain my favourite.
Shikra Mobbing Mottled Wood Owl.
Owls are subjected to intense mobbing behavior, as they often prey on sleeping birds. The other birds chase these predators out of their territories so that they will be safer at night.
Mobbing usually does not harm the owl as the behavior is tied more to driving away a predator than causing it injury.
Rakher Upobash is a famous Hindu religious festival of lights, faith and devotion.
Devotees attend prayer with burning incense and light oil lamps before break fasting.
My future galaxy is to see people rooted to their religion.
A ghost crab is exhibiting a deposit-feeding mechanism. Deposit feeding is seen in crustaceans where the crabs ingest sand particles to feed on the organic matter in the sand (about 1% of the total sand consumed). Deposit feeding is very rapid in ghost crabs, they egest the inorganic or undigested matter through the oral cavity and leave visible pellets in the area. Any activity that is worth witnessing. The pellets are visible in this shot.
Joyful Monsoons: I went out to photograph the areas of Sovabazar in Kolkata and got stuck in heavy rain when i saw two kids and their pet dog enjoying in the rain. The child and the photographer in me couldn\'t stay back under the shade at the sight. I took my umbrella out and rushed to the street to click and froze this wonderful moment.
This particular individual was one of the most beautiful and intelligent young male of the pack of Indian Wolves we were documenting. He showed every sign and was destined to be the alpha among the young ones and to rule the grasslands with his brothers bound by blood.
The great white pelican also known as the eastern white pelican, rosy pelican or white pelican is a bird in the pelican family. It breeds from southeastern Europe through Asia and Africa, in swamps and shallow lakes.
Kolkata winter mornings are surreal. I happened to go to Kolkata during the peak of winter. Known as a hub for artists and art, this place is full of stories. One hazy morning, I was just wandering around with my camera. Despite not being very visible, I continued my search for stories. All of a sudden I saw someone, but as it was too hazy only his head was visible. I waited for the haze to clear so that I could see what that man was doing. After a while, I noticed him talking on the phone but wanted a striking composition for the shot. I decided to wait there for some time and after almost an hour was lucky enough to get this shot. By then the haze had diminished and the Victoria Memorial in the background added magic to this image.
Commonly known as the Wall’s Bronzeback (Dendrelaphis cyanochloris), the species is mainly found in northeast India. They are also seen in the Andaman Islands. Being forest dwellers, they reside in lowland rainforests. Although designated as Least Concern by the IUCN Red List, conversion of forest land for agricultural purposes is a concern for local populations. The photo was taken at Garbhanga Reserved Forest of Assam, India.
