Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunset

When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator.

~Mohandas Gandhi

It’s an everyday affair, the sun sets in the west without fail-every day. Still viewing a sunset is such a romantic and pleasing spot to glimpse. Hills or plains, oceans or deserts – it’s all different, all new. Is it the grace of a setting sun or the colors it adds to the sky-all varying with every backdrop? Is it actually attractive or just that we miss admiring its beauty in normal course of life?

Well ! I leave the answer to this question up to you and do my bit by sharing these pictures taken while sunset at assorted locations.

Time to head home!!!
As the sun is setting, these ducks have started rushing back to their homes @ Okhla bird sanctuary in New Delhi
Golden Glow @ Arabian Sea. Bidding adieu to the Sun for a night…
Who says sunsets look marvelous with natural settings only…see how this man-made marvel creates an aura with the setting sun
Even sea waves find sunsets so amusing!!!

P.S.: I am flaunting these pictures from my husband’s collection. More of them can be found at his Facebook page.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Path

The Path of life can be long or short
And for each of us is different.
For some it is straight and level
While for others it is windy and steep
But for most, it is neither
And yet, somehow, it is both.

~Keith Roger Sherer

‘Path’…this theme brings to my mind several distinct settings in which paths do exist. It can be a straight street through the town, or a sinuous path with hairpin bends; a path along a slope downhill or a narrow one through the wooded jungle. Just like paths get formed in a numerous ways, each one of us too forge diverse paths to trudge through our lives. Some tread on a well-trod path while others devise their own; some design paths and then walk, while others keep trudging and paths do follow.

I have posted a few pictures here, that we clicked during our few past outings. All are various examples of paths we see (though, not all).

I know the landscapes are mostly beautiful, but trudging through them, on a road all wet after rain is simply divine…
Where there is will, there is a way…so what if it is through a jungle
Yamuna follows a path behind the Taj
How these palm trees are accentuating this path through the backwaters-path for the boats…

Wait…before you can have this one!!!

I know it’s too late to post this but I couldn’t find some other better way to publish this. My hubby is fond of photography, which is one of the reasons why we purchased a camera with some advanced features. And now he’s trying his hands at clicking some admirable shots. One of them is here, which was actually our new year cake. He took so many shots before he could click up to his satisfaction. And I simply loved this one.
