Hey,

Long time no see. Exactly 2 Month 27 days later. Last 1.5 month was quite roamy-roamy and free. Leisure , fun and total Dhamaal.

My project reached Major Milestone 1 on 20th August and I have been enjoin ever since.

Finally I have graduated to a DSLR.

Yeah I am a proud DSLR Nikon D40x + 2 lens [ Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED AF-S DX VR (Telephoto) + Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5 - 5.6G (Wide/Macro)] owner.

Here are a few shots from a small hill station called Dhanaulti in uttarakhand. It's not a grt time to go to a hill station very much risky ,but a hill station is looks stunning when surrounded with clouds. Visibility got reduced to less than 1 meters many a times while driving to that place not to forget fresh land slides. But still it was simply overwhelming.

Route to Dhanualti (Thandevaar to be precise). On our way back we took the other way which goes via mussourie (Equally amazin with amazin roads) > Dehradun since the roads were closed due to heavy land slide.

 

Route to Dhanaulti

We were in Dhanualti (Height around 9000 ft ) for 3 days and been to nearby places Tihri Dam, Tihri (Now submerged), Chamba etc and haridwar on our way back.

Deep purple.

Grab it

Tents where we stayed for 2 days.

I wish I could grow taller, calmer & more patient than these trees.

Road to enlightenment.

About to smile.

Misty morning.

This guy is a big bore sis.

Pearls on grass....

School Chalein Hum.. Boys with the bags in same color and eyes brimming with excitement.

I was truly awed by this man made marvel. Tihri Dam. The lake has guzzled up the whole Tihri City and is 1 Km Deep and 100 km in Width. Truck on the Dam looks smaller than a pack of cigarettes. Trust me its HUGE. The mountain there is totally hollow. The dam generates around 800MW now and will be churning out 1500 once completely ready. And not to forget this is under construction since last 30 years.

Not Interested.

Keep sharing your pics.

शहर्र की बे चीराघ गलीयूं में
ज़िंदगी तुझ को, धूनद्ती है अभी
याद के बे नीशान जज़ीरूं से
तेरी आवाज़ आ , रही है अभी
वक्त अछा भी आयेगा नासीर
गम न कर ज़िंदगी, पडी है अभी
नासिर काज़मी
