I am not sure if we are alone or not.. but we are definitely not still 😉

Wanted to capture the milky way… but the clouds kinda got in the way.. so i improvised… n got these beautiful trails instead.. n guess what i got trails on the land, in water in the sky and in space 🙂

Another one with the stars n not so much movement…

Thanks for the views…

Breaking the silence…

Been a long time since my last post… Life gets to you some times 😉 Not in a bad way though… just kept me on my toes for the last few months. One thing I did not stop doing though… going places and taking pics 😀
Lake Tahoe is an easy choice when ones pressed for time… always beautiful.. no matter what the weather:) and pretty close to the bay area 🙂
The pic above with the fiery skies is from my latest trip. Early bird really caught itself something phenomenal this time around 🙂

Heres another one from the trip… Had to trek a lil bit for this one… I just love how you can walk a few mins to be transported someplace totally new 🙂

Onto some older ones now…
This is one from the last trip in the winters… This ones is at Sand Harbor… another location which is perennially beautiful 🙂 You cant go wrong here be it day or night sumers or winters 🙂

Sometimes you just gotta hold on n keep an open eye…

Sometimes you just gotta hold on n keep an open eye...

How many times have you bashed up yourself for a missed opportunity? I, on a recent trip to Mammoth lakes CA, had such a moment. I had scoped locations and found one at Silver lake (near the more known mono lake) silver lake. I did a quick check(enough time to get to the location n setup,camera, batteries,tripod, lenses, etc) and started to head out of my motel room, but as usually happens, got delayed (people with toddlers would know why ;)). Ended up reaching there just in time to miss the last ray of the setting sun vanishing on the mountain top as i settled in 😦

Man did i feel down n out, this was our last evening at Mammoth lakes, CA before we headed out to Lake Tahoe. The i just remembered a spot i had seen driving back from my scouting trip in the afternoon, i thought why not go there n capture some b/w shots cus the location had imprinted itself on my mind. I did push my drive a bit, but as i pulled up there, i was mesmerized by what i saw. I had to get onto the shoulder to get these shots, saw all the cars zip by. I was in for a treat… the most amazing n dramatic sky i had seen for quiet some time n a perfect backdrop to this tattered hut. I quickly got my cameras out, the light was fading fast, i had no time to setup tripods n all… I fired of maybe more than 200 shots… but i got results like this, this and the one i have posted above. Was i a happy man 😀

Moral of the story (for me really, more than any one else 😉 ) is, keep an eye out for secondary backups in case you miss your primary for any reason and have the ability to move on instead of getting stuck…
