As I went about my morning walk up on the terrace of my home in Bangalore, the Sun was making it’s way up. It’s move up on the stage was so grand that I had to grab my camera and focus on its entrance.
It was a poised way up and it was utterly elegant that I had to focus on getting these above shots. I was lost in time and wonder of this spectacle.
We are always so lost in our own world that we fail to look at the beauty around, the nature is a grand spectacle and every day, every moment is brand new.
What do you think of this? Have you come across any grand spectacle of nature?
On a bright summer afternoon, I reached the Niagara State Park in New York along with my family. The sun was too harsh for us to walk leisurely about the park. As we hopped on the cruise, we were ushered by the roar of the magnificent falls. A gentle spray touched us all, the excitement did soar as we cruised along. To stand in front of the beautiful falls was utterly humbling. To be amongst this wonder was worth it. It felt like an adventure just about cruising along the falls between USA and Canada.
A few glimpses of the falls from my Camera.
A closer view of the Falls
Have you been to Niagara Falls? Or have you been to any other beautiful falls which felt very special….. Let me know…
I have come to realize that Life isn’t about growing up, getting educated, working on a job, paying bills, having a family and then one fine day dying!
The above things are just part of your life but not LIFE!
I have lately come to realize or realizing that Life is a celebration when you know LIFE is all there is, that is the miracle and the truth!
I have so bluntly put in the above sentence but Life is the journey into oneself, your magnanimous self, the inner you and I think once I fathom that or more so feel it, there is nothing but Joy. All the walls, castles, illusions just fade away…..
I am on this Journey.. I am getting there. Will let you know more once I do.
My first experience in Himalayas was spellbinding. To stand and gaze at the mighty mountains was utterly fabulous. The mountain air evokes the soul within you and certainly come back to the plains a changed person. It is so sublime that I have goosebumps just thinking about it.
Days and days pass by
My love for them stands by
It is a calling I cannot ignore
For I long for them forever more!
I have been visiting Himalayas every year now.
Well do visit Himalayas, the abode of mighty mountains and bliss!
Or have you been to Himalayas and how was your experience?
One way is to trek, another is to ride up , well there is a third way – Riding in the largest aerial tramway in the United States – At Gatlinburg over Great Smoky Mountains!
Well the road ride to Tennessee was fabulous because of the valleys, the mountains and incredible views throughout the way.
Gatlinburg, the mountain resort city has numerous places to visit, enjoy and of course ring in with the rustic mountain ambience throughout. More on Gatlinburg in another post.
Great Smoky Mountains are part of the Blue ridge mountains on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina. The popular Appalachian trail passes through the center of the park. The ranges are at an altitude of about 6ooo feet and above.
Well as we headed up the aerial tramway, the joy of seeing the mountains below us was fantastic. It was the thrill of hovering over mountain ranges and seeing the Smoky mountain ranges all around us. The ride was quite adventurous when the tramway headed down and we had the entire crowd inside the tramway yelling on top of their voices.
Well for me a trekker, a hiking enthusiast this was a different wonderful way of seeing the mountains and enjoying the ride with fellow travellers.
