Playing with Crescent Moon and Trees

It was last year. One of the cold December evenings. Chilly merciless winds added even more to the cold. I had forgotten to put on gloves before heading out in a hurry to capture the pretty moon. Given all that, I could only stay out for like 10-15 minutes before my hands gave up and started shaking the camera in my hand. But… it surely was fun.😉

Last December? Yes, it took me that long to share these photos.

Living. Non-living. Together.

 

“I believe the universe wants to be noticed. I think the universe is improbably biased toward the consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed. And who am I, living in the middle of history, to tell the universe that it – or my observation of it – is temporary?” ― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

 

Blue Mistflower

Blue Mistflower, Wild Ageratum, Blue Boneset

 

More information on this flower (Source):

Mistflower grows to 3 feet high, but often lower, with leaves opposite, somewhat triangular in shape, and bluntly toothed. At the top of the plant the branches, with their short-stemmed clusters of flowers, form an almost flat top. Disk flowers are bright blue or violet, about 1/4 inch long. There are no ray flowers.

Blue Mistflower attracts bees and butterflies. However, this wildflower spreads quickly and can become a pest.


PS.

I did my homework this time to find the information on this wildflower, Mr. Steve! Thanks for the motivation. Cheers! Hope you like this portrait.

Travelling with the Sun

My journey through the Himalayan roads on a chilly winter day became even more enjoyable and beautiful, thanks to ‘our’ amazing Sun.

Hope you admired the sun as much as I did.🙂

Wintery Silences: River Beas

The snowfall is the most quite of all, but even the river goes silent in the winter compared to its late summer or monsoon avatars.
