I feel humbled thinking of the infinite-ness of the space and time we live in ...

 

A first attempt at shooting the summer side of our Milky way. really missed having the 14mm F2.8. At the same time, really impressed with 12800 ISO of D600.

 

Shot from Kadayal @ Kerala - Tamil Nadu border

It is believed that, this rock was once lifted by Hanuman for ‘Sethubandhanam’. But he left it behind on finding a ‘Shivalingam’ marking the presence of Lord Shiva. Thus, the place got the name ‘thirichittapara’ (means 'The Rock that was returned' )

 

Its an amazing trek to the top and the view is great... hopefully, it wont turn into a concrete jungle soon.

Its kind of candid + posed. this shot was taken on request !!! But i loved the light falling on the face !!!
