Sumachs have always been my favourite autumn tree. This pond is on my daily walk (so lucky) and not far from the canyon of condos where I live. The best of both worlds I think.
Indian Summer by William Wilfred Campbell.
Along the line of smoky hills
The crimson forest stands,
And all the day the blue-jay calls
Throughout the autumn lands.
Now by the brook the maple leans
With all his glory spread,
And all the sumachs on the hills
Have turned their green to red.
Now by great marshes wrapt in mist,
Or past some river's mouth,
Throughout the long, still autumn day
Wild birds are flying south.
My first Sunset near Yamuna River, a magic moment...
Taj Mahal, monument to Love.
Indian Robin female !!
Good morning !! Have a happy Sunday To All Lovely fellows !!
Thanks very much for visits faved & support :pray:
The Indian peacock has iridescent blue and green plumage. The peacock "tail", known as a "train", consists not of tail quill feathers, but highly elongated upper tail coverts. These feathers are marked with eyespots, best seen when a peacock fans his tail. Both sexes of all species have a crest atop the head. The Indian peahen has a mixture of dull grey, brown, and green in her plumage. The female also displays her plumage to ward off female competition or signal danger to her young.
In the cool hours of early dawn, metre-gauge Alco YDM-4 unit 6731 eases away from Govindgarh Malikpur station beneath the splendid bracket signal with the first southbound service of the day, the 04.55 Sikar Junction - Jaipur Junction (train 02082).
The Sikar to Jaipur line was one of the last bastions of metre-gauge activity in Rajasthan but, a few months after this shot was taken, that all came to an end when the line closed for conversion to broad gauge.
The YDM-4s are hardy locomotives and it's likely some of them will be serviced and sold overseas. There's little use for the coaching stock however and it will probably be scrapped - indeed there are images of exactly that taking place at the old MG maintenance facility at Sikar Junction.

Firewheel or indian blanket is a popular annual growing 1-2 ft. tall. The hairy stem is usually much-branched and becomes woody at the base late in the season. Branched stems, mostly leafy near the base, have showy flower heads with rays red at base, tipped with yellow, each with 3 teeth at broad end. The well-known flower heads are 1-2 in. across with a red center and a yellow outer band. Occasionally the three-cleft rays are solid orange or yellow. The disk flowers in the center are brownish red.
Frequent along roadsides in the Southwest, these wildflowers stand like hundreds of showy Fourth of July pinwheels at the top of slender stalks. Varieties are popular in cultivation, for they tolerate heat and dryness. Among several species in the Southwest, some flowers are entirely yellow.
An Indian River Tern scanning the skies for any potential threats. Unlike most Sterna terns, it is almost exclusively found on freshwater, rarely venturing even to tidal creeks. The sexes are similar but juveniles have a brown head, brown-marked grey upperparts, grey breast sides and white underparts. The bill is yellowish with a dark tip. The River Tern feeds by plunge-diving for fish, crustaceans, tadpoles and aquatic insects in rivers, lakes, and tanks. Its numbers are decreasing due to the pollution of their habitat.
The Indian Well at Ames Park is next to what used to be the Ames House, but is now the City Attorney's offices. This is the pond where I used to get most of my waterlily shots, but now only one lily remains. The well, with its fountain that isn't always on, is still a lovely focal point of the park.
A few years ago I realized that I had a desire to find and see as much of this beautiful state as I could and researched hikes utilizing the Washington Trails Association (of which I am now a proud member) and I found all of the 'bunny trails', one to (gasp) six miles and I saw some amazing beauty, but two years ago I saw an image of Indian Henry's Hunting Ground and the Ranger Scout Cabin located there and realized that this was a place that I could not go to. They list it at 14 miles (the signs on the trail say 16, I can add) with 3200 feet of elevation gain. After working out this winter and hiking every chance I could I struck out for this mystical magical place on a trail that climbs and descends several ridges, crosses many beautiful streams, passes two pack in campgrounds and with the exception of Rampart Ridge you do it on a part of the 95 mile trail that's calling my name, the Wonderland.
You approach from the right and you just see the side of it tucked neatly in the trees and then you look up at the amazing south west face of Rainier towering behind it, I'd say that it was breathtaking, but I didn't have any anyway..... :-) I ate lunch and sipped a Gatorade on the back step and glowed at the beauty I had found and knowledge that there isn't a place in the park that I can't get to now, might take a few days, but I can get there. (I also tacked on two miles and got Mirror lakes after lunch, I mean, I was in the neighborhood.....) :-)
Boots on the trail at 5:40 a.m., butt in the truck at 4:00 p.m. It was a VERY good day. I saw three people coming down on my way up and spoke to a man who was arriving via the much easier Tahoma Creek route as I was leaving. I've never been so alone in my life. :-)
The Indian Heritage Centre (IHC), under the management of the National Heritage Board and with support from the Indian community, traces the history of the Indian and South Asian communities in the Southeast Asian region.
The four-storey IHC building is an iconic, unique and sustainable building that blends both traditional Indian as well as modern architectural elements. The architectural design for the facade of IHC is inspired by the “baoli” (or Indian stepwell), and seeks to create an urban forum for the celebration and appreciation of Indian culture. It houses five permanent galleries, small scale museum facilities, a museum shop as well as programming and activity spaces.*

While driving within Stone Mountain Park for the Indian Fest, I just could not pass up this opportunity, of the sun rising at the other end of the lake. People didn't like my parking in the middle of the road, but I had my flashers on.....LOL.....sorry 'bout that!

Indian Bicycle @ Cars & Stripes , as seen at the Port of Los Angeles.
An Indian Pond Heron seen in its breeding colours. In their non-breeding plumage their camouflage is so good that they can be approached closely before they take to flight, a behaviour which has resulted in folk names and beliefs that the birds are short-sighted or blind. They are very common in India, and are usually solitary foragers but numbers of them may sometimes feed in close proximity during the dry seasons when small wetlands have a high concentration of prey. The primary food of these birds includes crustaceans, aquatic insects, fishes, tadpoles and sometimes leeches.

You allowed your kingly power to vanish, Shajahan,
but your wish was to make imperishable a tear-drop of love.
Permitiste que tu poderoso reino se desvaneciera, Shajahan,
pero quisiste hacer perpetua una lágrima de amor.
Indian Field Creek is one of many creeks that you will pass over following the Colonial Parkway from Yorktown to Jamestown Island, Virginia.
The yellowish tone is due to morning lights which I left unedited during WB editing. This image is also close to my heart.
