A Paddy Field

A Paddy Field

 En route Lavasa, we came across this small paddy (I hope I've got this right) field with a bunch of farmers. The sight was quite pleasing for us to see but certainly quite a task to be doing in those conditions.

The old-school manual way of ploughing a field using bullocks

 I certainly have tried my hands at this; have you ever tried manual ploughing?

A dense cloud cover

A Dense Cloud Cover

Hill stations offer tranquility and scenic views and one such view is a dense cloud cover that literally gives a 'walk in the clouds' feel. 

Doesn't it? 


For those who love soaking up to a downpour, it's all just begun!

Travel and Photos

Travel and Photos

Travel and photos; the return. It's been almost a year and a half since I have unwillingly been away with this blog and my fellow blogger friends. I've also, sadly, not been able to spend enough time with my camera and on my travels.

But then, the time seemed to have come when this aloofness has started to hit me. And here I am continuing where I left to share and learn. 

It's the peak of monsoons here in Mumbai, India, so what better way to start with the current feel and mood!

As always, feedback appreciated and criticism welcomed.

And I do sincerely hope to be here regularly and respond to comments and email; and of course, kick start Saturday Sareenity very soon!

Saturday Sareenity - Weekly Challenge 9

Ran a little late again this week but, welcome to Saturday Sareenity; a weekly meme where you can submit any photo that you think symbolises something calm and serene. It could be nature, landscape, critters, children; absolutely anything.

Based on the voting, we'll have a 'Featured Photo of the Week' in the following week's challenge.

In addition, you can still participate if you don't have a photo that qualifies for symbolising 'calm and serene', but then it cannot qualify for being the featured photo, even if it gets the most votes.

And yes, please do link back to My Third Eye or Saturday Sareenity.


The voting was a little low last week but there is a clear winner from last week. And it is Carole's Creative Corner - Serene Scene.


This shot has come all the way from Australia and the shot speaks for itself. The stillness of the water, the reflections and the tones in the sky, all just make such a perfect setting don't they?

Congrats, and feel free to grab your 'Featured' button!






And now for this week's challenge. 


For those who are new, here are a few simple rules to play by:
  • Do link the permalink of the blog post that you're submitting and not you're blog URL
  • Please do try visit fellow participants; should help in discovering other good photography blogs and in learning
  • You can submit your entries Fri-Tue and then come back to vote Tue-Thus
  • It would be nice if you could follow
  • By contributing to the meme, you give me permission to use the submitted photo on my site and even feature it if its the top pick of the week
  • You must link up to My Third Eye or Saturday Sareenity for others to join and I'd appreciate it if you can add the button


 

PS: 'Sareen' is my last name and hence the creative liberty of spelling serene :). 


Cheers!
