A Bloggers journey…

Well, I started this blog way back in 2008 and the primary intention was to ‘share’ my experiences, knowledge and showcase my journeys to the readers and to help them plan many such endeavors.

I’m a traveler at heart and still enjoy traveling at the knock of an opportunity. The blog kicked off with some of my travel articles from the past that I wrote based on my memory and what I could recollect. After few busy months, there appeared to be a jetlag when I was in a trance and sure of what to write (well, this happens to everybody), but in an effort to sustain the enthusiasm, I was waiting for any weekend travel opportunities just to write an article, such was the craze.

Before I could even realize, a couple of years had passed by and the blog was been fed regularly with my articles and quite a few people had taken a liking to it and were asking for more. All along, I used to use my compact digital camera wherever I used to go but dedicated time went into photography only when I lay my hands on the Dslr camera.

Slowly and steadily, all travels now had an element of photography in them and that helped me explore a lot of new places and as time lapsed by, my interest in nature in general and wildlife in particular grew leaps and bounds and that is now very relevant to the articles I blog about, showcasing the splendor of nature and travel tales together.

All along, I really appreciate and acknowledge the support shown from the readers, visitors and it always feels good when someone somewhere recognizes you by your blog and wishes you the best.

As I look forward, I intend to continue showcasing the beautiful nature to my readers maybe with more travel articles and also probably exploring new destinations and publishing all information that I can get so as to help people in their planning.

Snakes from Goa

Ok, I'm lagging behind with a truckload of pending posts and my apologies for the same, hope to make up for the delay soon.

In the last post, I presented some nature frames that I was able to shoot in the Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife sanctuary, Goa.

As I have been repeatedly insisting, Goa is a haven for all kinds of wild life (both diurnal and nocturnal) and we were able to see a variety of reptiles, amphibians, insects, spiders, butterflies and birds on our trip to Goa.

Of the multiple snakes we saw, the highlight was the multiple sighting of the Hump-nosed Pit Viper in various forms. It was astonishing to see them in varied plumage's (if I may call that) depending on the surrounding it was in (like a brown coated viper seen on the ground, a more blackish brown viper seen on the rocks, a more dull greyish colored viper on the rocks and so on...)

Hope you like them and it would be great to have your feedback :)

wait for more to come...
