Mornin’ High

An army of Ants scale and attend to the tender leaves of a bush during sunrise at Seawoods.

Ants are one the best examples of teamwork, selflessness and dedication in the natural world that I am personally aware of. The amount of work they do with the precision they possess is hysterical indeed. One could learn great lessons of teamwork and management from these little soldiers just by tuning in into their schedule. But make sure you have the time – even one brief moment of your absence and they vanish without a trace!

Each scout a pawn takes is potential death is disguise. But that does not stop them, as they seem to be aware of the fact that whether it is life or death, it is for the greater good and that the whole existence of their kingdom depends on their actions, which they perform dedicatedly.

Thus even the smallest link is equally strong and important as the largest one.

An Evening to Remember

Chaos, amidst the cold silence

A feeling of fullness, all within none

Thrill, that would very much kill

Retracing the steps that were once feared for being the unknown

Taking that leap of faith with the mirage of a goal in your head, but never in your heart

And finally, embracing something from where it all started from – the darkness

An evening, well spent…

 

Morning Dose of Puppy Love

Two pupps share a mischievous moment during their regular morning scouts around the holding ponds at Seawoods, Navi Mumbai.
 
Starting the day with such happiness and love, amidst nature is a gift indeed. These doggos were not only friendly but were also kind enough to give me a temporary ‘doggo pass’ to their ‘wolfgang’, which permitted me to follow them around and witness some really beautiful moments of their companionship and masti 🙂

Watch Out, Watch Out!

This bud was sitting a few feet away for 2 straight hours (or even more), first cautiously looking out and then a bit more relaxed after getting accustomed to me, as I took a few snaps at the viewpoint from Parsik Hills a few days ago.

I do miss that light and heat from the day now. Hope these guys are safe and doing just fine.

Turning on a New Leaf

Tender leaves sprout out on one of the many bushes lined up at the holding pond at Seawoods amidst a rather dramatic monsoon climate that has been engulfing most of the area for the past few days.

The monsoon comes as a much relief after the heated summer. Even though unpredictable in nature, the often heavy spells are a blessing much needed.

Fullness

A panoramic view of the hills at Kharghar that have been captivating my mind, body and soul for around a decade now. This place never gets old and never will (though it’s a few million years old by now, but still). The apocalyptic cloud line adds drama to the existing beauty.

There is a Storm Coming In

A thunderstorm, approaching from the east, engulfing the skyline of Kharghar.

Being the 1st day of the month of the monsoon, the weather didn’t disappoint me at all. The intensity of the storm was quite superior given the fact that none of Haji Malang was to be seen anywhere. But what blew things out of proportion was the surreal lighting all around. It was neither diffused and nor strong. It was just out of this world!

P.S – In case anyone wondered, I didn’t go overboard to make the color look like these. Though basic tweaks were done to the image, the WB stands untouched (Temp. 4250 K , Tint +9). Nor was any funky filter applied (I suck big time in doing those anyways).
The light today was indeed this damn crazy.
