Sun,Rain,Snow...and just Water, sometimes

I am amazed at how the quality of the light changes....when the rain threatens, it's dark and everything gets tinged with grey, as when we were leaving for our safari on the first day of the NTP meet:

that was at 4pm!

Then, the sun breaks through the snow clouds, too....

The quality of the light then is prismatic...showing up all the colours of the rainbow...

The sun, rain and snow...they beguile me...and my camera...and sometimes, it's light through water, of a different kind. This is what I saw when the sun shone through the Hippo's pond (it has a fibreglass side, for visitors to view the hippos and the fish underwater):


The NTP2010 Meet

Since the dates and the convenience of lots of members of the NTP fell into place, we had the 2010 meet at BR Hills on the 13th of January,2010....

Here's the sign to Biligiri Ranganna Hills (I love that Karnataka logo, too!)

karnataka and brhills signboards 120110

And I love any sign that says it's 0 km to a destination, instead of a bald statement that this is the place...it gives a satisfying feeling of Journey's End!

And this is the "official" group photo (or "gurufoto" as the children in my apartment building called it...though it WAS minus Guru-G Karthik!)
