Light & shadow and on Outlook's book on treks in India.... Posted by Hello

The book on trekking in India is out in the stands...on the brighter side, two guys whose work I always admired are featured...Vivek has written an article about Kanoor fort and needless to say, he has gone about it in a very professional way as always.Thanks Vivek for providing such a detailed route for the fort..and you can also find a photograph of Kishori in the same article...you can find lots of stuff about that place in Kishori's and Vivek's blog..and that's how I came to know about the world of blogging. Congratz guys. On a darker note, three of the most famous trails of Karnataka, Kumaraparvata, Kuduremukh, Narasimha parvata are not featured. Maybe the editor wanted to cover all grades of difficulty from toughest to the easiest and so might have omitted these three..anyways all you trekking enthusiasts, time to grab your copy :)

I have started experimenting with indoor lighting and this is the first from the series...thats my brother and he's actually posing for me :)

Some people see in slants of black and white, others in bands of colors. Somewhere in between, there is an intermediate vision of life.

You always manage to catch human expressions well and freeze them in pictures.

hey.. thanks.. and yeah me also in the pic under coorg..hehe.. lying down covering my eyes to the sun.. yaay.. though I was not happy about a lot of things in the book .. but it is the first of its kind.. so..

my views about the picture- the aspect of the window being in the perspective is interesting but in this case.. I feel that the window's presence marrs the picture of what it could have been.. it seems more of a distraction and not in sync with the rest of the snap or mood.. if u caould have asked u'r bro to stand a few paces back and shot him only in the light streaks.. probably that would have been better..

and ofcourse to each his own.. when it comes to views .. hehe.. happy clicking

Hi Sudharshan, Thanks a plenty for your words. There are a lot of things in the book that I would have liked to change, but not everything went the way the editor and myself wanted. We, in fact, wanted to have a separate edition for the south which could not be materialized. Anyway lets consider this as some sort of a litmus test for the future adventure guides that shall eventually follow.

I like the effect of the shadows on this one. Well done with a new style.

Ascending the heights and being a part of the Himalayan landscape is an experience beyond comparison. Above all trekking in the Himalaya is often a mix of adventure, pleasure
and self realisation.
