“Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today.“
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“Silence on a hill where the path ended
and then the forest below
moving in one long whisper
as evening touched the leaves.”
~ William Stafford
I didn’t quite understand why the clouds were like this that evening. Anyway, it was wonderful!

Here is one glorious sunset moment I witnessed while I was travelling the past four days. It was so beautiful and incredible that I couldn’t help but take multiple shots in the little time I got from my time-bound trip.
(Himalayan) Pine Trees –

A cold winter evening. 2011 is almost over here now. In some parts of the world, the celebrations have already begun, and in some places, the 31st morning is just beginning.
Happy New Year!

Good wishes to you all.
So it’s officially a sky week for me. It rained here yesterday and by evening it still was very dark. But somewhere in the far south-west, sun finally managed to peek through the dark clouds. It was so amazing to just look at that scene.

A pretty hole in the clouds -
There was no electricity for an hour in the evening, and it felt like night inside the house. I haven’t even edited these pictures for contrast, they are exactly the same as they were clicked. God’s Rays, they call them, right.
Have a beautiful and peaceful time!
Evening is the time when all the birds sit and chirp together just before their roosting time. That is the time when their loud noises are difficult to ignore. So I decided to capture one group in my camera. This group, rather I would like to call them ‘family‘ here, was periodically flying around this tree and then settling down for sometime to fly again. It was great to watch them do that.
It was evening and the light was very dull at this part of the sky. I processed this image to make it B&W. The birds looked great this way.
One more. This one is just a cropped version of the original one. I wanted to keep its colors.
Birds make all of us ‘dream’ to fly,
fly high into the endless blue sky.
To be courageous and stop being shy,
how amazing would it be to freely fly.
Have an amazing free weekend!

October passed way too soon . But anyways, I had a great time this month. Festivals, family, fun-times, lazy-times, few outings, – well I enjoyed everything. Well, no work these days, so I’m (obviously) having best time. Hehehe
Sharing some pictures of evening skies past this month. Today evening, it was all dull-gray, a little boring. Hope you enjoy the pictures
