It might be too small or too big the only thing never ever fail to impress my eyes are the flowers. I love those tiny flowers very much and the gorgeous details in their body always asking my eyes to do a research. One great example is this purple flower tree is in front of my boarding place, every morning while I go to the work I was welcomed by this bunch of purple flowers. On a Sunday after a heavy shower in the previous night; these flowers decorated by the water drops were amazing and prompt me to take the camera out. Fortunately I had less work on that day and had enough time to spend with the flowers. tree was almost filled with flowers and i was looking for the nicely placed water drop. This is it! a lovely water drop at the end of the inflorescence.
The last weekend of august i got a rare three days off from the work therefore a chance to go to my home (Jaffna) after a 3 months of continuous work. There, my first aim was refresh my taste buds with the mom’s freshly cooked plates and I already had other plans for my 600D that was the bird Hunting.
I Know few places where we can see various kinds of birds usually in the rainy season. Even though August is a very sunny and a hot season in jaffna with less water in those Ponds, I went to one of those ponds to snap some birds.
That pond called As “pullukulam” situated behind the university hostel i stayed during my college days. during those days every morning and evening i used to watch them playing and bathing in the water, so i went there in the evening 3pm. Sad thing is the pond is almost empty and little amount of water remaining in it.
I was searching for a dynamic bird shot but The birds were resting in the pond, not with the same mood i have seen them in the past. they remained static and bit boring.
Suddenly my eyes had struck at this group of little egrets, bcoz of their position and the nice reflection appeared in the water. I love the arrangement of these five egrets and I made the image bit interesting by tuning the white balance a bit.
I found another cutie but unfortunately not with in the good range of 250mm. i couldn’t get closer to have a good detail of this bird.
Thats all, I was able to post only three images i took in that pond, my first adventure of bird photography with canon 600d + 250mm. This time the season was not suitable to catch some beautiful birds. Awaiting for the rainy season.
Mahabalipuram, derived from ‘Mamallapuram’ (Tamil: மாமல்லபுரம்) is a town in Kancheepuram district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It has an average elevation of 12 metres (39 feet).
Mahabalipuram was a 7th century port city of the South Indian dynasty of the Pallavas around 60 km south from the city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu. The name Mamallapuram is believed to have been given after the Pallava king Narasimhavarman I, who took on the epithet Maha-malla (great wrestler), as the favourite sport of the Pallavas was wrestling. It has various historic monuments built largely between the 7th and the 9th centuries, and has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.-Wiki
When I was gone to the Victoria flower garden, Nuweraeliya, Srilanka on last vacation is the day my eyes never forget. Everywhere was flowers and I had no idea to which one I am going to shoot. After an hour of confusion I realized that the light was going dull on that evening and I randomly shot some flowers. I preferred to take macro with every flower but sadly some of them had gone out of focus. Any way I am happy with some flowers I have covered and sharing here for you!
