When I “googled” – fall – the search images came up with tons of vibrant colored photographs. Amazing and heart-warming. I know very well that I don’t live in a place where I can find those kind of trees. And being a person who loves nature and colors, it is kind of sad that I cannot photograph one of the most beautiful phenomenon on Earth – Autumn Leaves (To be honest, maple leaves are my favorite of all!).
But then I thought why not to capture the colors that are around me, even though I had to look for them. After all the season is the same here too. So here are some of the shots I captured of fallen leaves. Enjoy – not-so-typical fall photos!
This one is my favorite –
There is a lot of variety in the leaves if you notice. HEHE.
I don’t know what was the reason for the dryness along the edges of these “brand-new” leaves, perhaps the harsh winter of early January, but it was worth capturing. Green color is a rarity in winters and if you find it, keep it.
It was a cloudy day when I took this picture, and I really liked the yellow-green warmth added by these leaves.
GREEN. IS. GOOD.
Just. For. Laughs!!

This was taken when I had gone with my family & friends for a picnic up on the mountain on a dry cold winter day. It was a great beginning to this year. Mom’s Shawl, Sunglasses and jacket provided by my Parents’ friends.
Hope you are all doing good!
So by now, perhaps, most of you would have come to know about my love for these faraway mountains, as this is my third post on them. You can click here and here if you want to see those posts.
The very reason that my camera isn’t capable of clicking them, makes me more in LOVE with them and fascinates me to capture the drama which unfolds around them on different days. So even if the pictures are not that clear and GREAT, I am still going to share them here.
And I would again like to mention - Not Edited & Not Framed. (Execpt for the last one, I cropped it)
Way too dramatic the next day…!
Closer on the snowy part -
Without the “Zoom”. I loved the clouds, that’s why.
Thank God, the drama got over and I could see the blue sky!

Have a good day, everyone! May your camera gets fascinated by your photographic mind.
The Sun has not shown its face for days now, and I’ve decided to write this post anyway. It’s in continuation with the post “A Blooming Tale”, which you can see by clicking here.
This one you have already seen. The sunlight is there making it more vibrant. I had to share this one as I liked it very much.
As the sunlight is not there, the flower doesn’t seem joyful, but is still happy. The winds didn’t cooperate so I had to hold it. Winds just kept coming all day long. The absence of sunlight can be easily noticed here: less shadows.
Another day, another angle
I cropped one of the pictures to get a closer view
It’s still time to see it in full blossom. I will just have to wait.

Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.

Some of you might remember that I had posted a very similar photo before. You are right! Though, it was of orange color. You can check it out here - Bouquet of Small Flowers in One Flower.
Flowers do brighten up a cold and dull winter day, don’t they?
Yay! The Rose Survived
(…in continuation with my post – Snow & Rose: Yesterday & Today)
The usual life: The rose was a little uncomfortable that day, as if its intuition was trying to tell something, something full of coldness. But it have always known to be strong, content and happy, so it just kept calm and soaked the beauty of the mountains and smiled. And the others who looked at it also smiled with the rose. Smile is infectious
But then very soon, the situations got worse making the rose tremble and feel that soon it might no more be a part of this plant which have been its home since it remembers. It was hard to cope but then the rose decided to just let it be. The only feeling left was “hope”. The rose kept its hope alive.
The rose endured the unexpected and difficult situation it was in, through day and night, and kept praying for more strength. And then when it was least expecting it, its prayers got answered, as unexpectedly as the snow had arrived. It eventually got the sunshine. The rose smiled more than ever. Cheerfully it looked around: the nature was applauding it for the strength it had shown, showering it with its beauty and warm feelings. The rose had got few bruises and wounds, but it didn’t matter much, since it had survived: It was alive!
Here, have a look Continue reading
Yay! It finally snowed here! I woke up to snowfall in the morning. It was unbelievable! Unbelievable? Well, according to the native people here, this place is not high enough to get snowfall and they haven’t experienced it as long as they can remember. But today, it was a new day. My hope was forming into a reality over the night. Hehehe.
I experienced it fully. The snow flakes were falling with the little blue morning light in the background. And if you have read my yesterday’s post, you would know how much surprising it would have been for me. It was just wonderful, exciting, over-joyous!
So here are two pictures of a rose (just one rose in the neighborhood, just one!), one which I took yesterday with the snow up in the mountains in the background and one with the snow, well, on the rose itself! Hope you enjoy.
I had fun clicking this one in the snow today. I almost slipped. Thank goodness, I didn’t.
It’s extremely cold here now. I will definitely share more photos.
It’s chilling cold.
It’s raining and it’s all wet.
It’s grey and dull all around.
It’s snowing high in the mountains,
but not here, where I live.
I can choose to be sad since it’s just rain,
but instead I say,
It’s beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
I’m praying for more snow.
Enjoy the weather, and stay warm!
