  1. Beautiful shot, Sreejth. Amazing capture of the water droplets and the light shining through them. Not just good timing but excellent framing too. He looks hard at work and so dedicated. I also like how there are both light and dark shades in this photo. Hard work might be a patch in our lives where we may not see the light, but as time goes on, often we’ll reap fruits of our labour. Lovely to see you as always Sreejith 😊

    1. Happy Holidays, Mabel 🙂

      Thank you so much for your observant and appreciative comments 🙂

      Flower is an integral part of the religious life of people in India, more so in South India.

      Every day, a vast majority of the population start the day with a flower offering to the god called Pooja.

      Also, village women decorate their hair with fragrant flowers…

      This is a small town and a junction, on the way to a major temple in the south Indian state of Karnataka.

      We were there to explore the tourism potential of the place and develop a community based sustainable programme.

      I just happened to be there at the right place and time but certainly would like to go there again and capture even better images 🙂

    1. Thank you so much 🙂

      Lucky with timing, but frankly speaking not entirely happy with the result…

      But, now I know the place, timing and what to look for. I will go there again during my next trip to Kundapura and try to capture better images 🙂


    1. Thank you so much, Sarmistha 🙂

      Kundapura is a small town in Udupi district of Karnataka, not at all there in the tourism maps, but rich in culture, heritage and natural beauty…

      I was there to explore and document the potential of this place as an experiential tourism destination.

      Just happened to reach the flower market at the right time, as I had to catch an early bus …

      Flowers are an integral part of the spiritual life of Indians, right? Especially in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.

    1. Thank you so much, Amy 🙂

      I was supposed to take an early morning bus to a place for a meeting but missed the bus and it was the consolation I had 🙂

      Lucky with timing, but not so happy with the image as It could have been much better had I could be prepared. Next time, I will do that 🙂

        1. When we stand and look at the droplets facing light, it produces sparkling effect, but no camera is good enough to capture and reproduce the beauty that our eyes could, right?

          It was a beautiful sight, but camera managed to capture only a fraction of that beauty, that’s why I was not totally satisfied with the result 🙂

          Thank you so much for your appreciative comments, Amy 🙂
