  • Skywatch | A cloudy Wayanadan evening

    I spent the whole of last week in the middle of a plantation in Wayanad, one of Kerala’s districts that lie on the Western Ghats. In the middle of the week, there was a downpour that restored the pleasant weather that Wayanad used to be known for. Two days...
  • Karwar: Karnataka’s picturesque northwest

    Karwar is the northernmost of port cities of Karnataka and is known for serving as a Naval base too. It lies on the north western corner of Karnataka, a few kilometres south of where the state shares a border with Goa. As such, it seemed like a good idea...

  • Utah’s rocky deserts – I

    One morning in Utah’s rocky desert-land. The dry land watching the sun on its way up. And catching some early morning light. And my lens was busy catching the landscape catching the light. These pictures are from a moving train. Utah’s dry side, its canyons and rock forms and...
