Sunset

A soft nudge, a gentle whisper

The   sky  blushed

as he gently kissed her

‘Goodbye my love’,  gushed

the sun , and the sky flushed

a bright crimson

A Beachy affair – Weekly Photo Challenge 2 (gone ,but not forgotten )

weekly photo challenge

This picture was captures on my phone , on a recent trip to Payyambalam beach , Kannur ,Kerala. The beach is not very far from my house , yet it is not very often that I go there... It was such a beautiful evening and I simply loved watching the sunset ,and the magic it played with the colors of the sky and the white apartment buildings in one corner....The evening is gone , but this picture still remains to remind me , not to take any thing or place for granted... As they say , there is beauty in everything ,you only need the eyes to look for it....

BLISS OF ‘NATURE’ – rivers ,mountains and seas…

I was elated that the topic for the Photography 101 was ‘Bliss’.  The word ‘Bliss’ itself has a certain calming , rejuvenating nature to it .

At the mere mention of the word , your mind starts stirring …swishing and swooshing like a tornado…, images from your life , flying in all directions before you , once again trying to capture the emotions behind all those , happy , ‘blissful’ moments !

Bliss: complete happiness, great joy, paradise, or heaven…

But then , it is a relative term. What is blissful to one , may perhaps be unpleasant to another !

To some , ‘bliss’ may , just mean a state of relaxation , and inactivity of the brain . Whereas , to another , it might be an activity in itself , like pursuing a favorite hobby or adventure sport .

I am person , who always draws a certain kick , when at a great height , hence , for me , Para sailing in Goa , was one of the most blissful moments of my life . But , then that moment (alas ! ) lasted only for a brief duration and soon , I was back to mother earth.

 I don’t think I can select that ‘ONE’ moment of bliss , from my life , because I have had many !

Looking at the face of my new born and kissing her cheek (a tear escaping my eyes ! ) , has been also a moment of Bliss for me…..The first time she learnt to walk  and a lot of firsts after that !

For me , being next to nature , to be able to hear the roaring of a waterfall , or the gurgling sounds of a stream , watching the snow capped mountains , and listening to the sounds of the forest , as all ‘blissful’ moments !

Here are a few selected ‘BLISSFUL MOMENTS’  , from   NATURE , …Hope you like them :
