With Love From Salzburg

I am sharing a few beautiful images of Salzburg, where I stayed for three nights. Words are not enough to describe this picturesque Austrian city, the birthplace of the world-renowned composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The weather was just perfect for photography. Fantastic architecture, lovely cafes, and exquisite bars make this city a wonderful tourist attraction. There are many popular spots that I could not visit due to lack of time. However, I got to spend some quality time in Mirabell Palace,
Hohensalzburg Fortress, and Hellbrunn Palace, which I will cover in my next blog posts. I am sure you will fall in love with this place.

How To Explore Langkawi’s Eagle Square

Malaysia’s Langkawi is replete with splendid spots. One of them is Eagle Square, which is also known as Dataran Lang. It is a man-made structure, which is the symbol of Langkawi.
The massive sculpture of an eagle poised to take flight is definitely eye-catching and absolutely stunning. The 12 meter tall sculpture at Eagle Square attracts hundreds of tourists everyday, thanks to its amazing design. One of the iconic structures of Langkawi, the statue is surrounded by waters and bridges that provide mesmerizing views to tourists. The massive eagle sculpture greets everyone who comes to Kuah by ferry. The afternoon here could be too hot. So it is advisable to visit the place either in the morning or evening. As I was staying in Tubotel hostel, I rented a taxi and reached the place along with my friend. After spending 40 minutes there, I returned to my hostel. It is a beautiful place, which I recommend you to visit.

Salzburg’s Beautiful Leopoldskron Pond

I just returned from a short trip to the Austrian city of Salzburg. This trip was organized by the Austrian Embassy, New Delhi and it was part of a competition organized on their Facebook page. I have captured a number of images and it is not possible to include them in a single blog post. The first post of my trip is about Leopoldskron pond, which is not far away from the Old Town of Salzburg. Probably the best place in Salzburg to relax and immerse in the stunning views of the pond, where one can spot a number of wildlife creatures such as ducks and swans. Situated against the backdrop of the bewitching Leopoldskron Palace as well as Hohensalzburg Fortress, this picturesque pond is 650 meters long and 220 meters wide. The driver of my hop-on and hop-off bus service dropped me near the pond. I was mesmerized by the sheer beauty of the place and did not even notice how my half an hour passed. From there, I walked towards Hohensalzburg Fortress. I also spotted few anglers, who were soaking up the sun. More posts on Salzburg trip is coming up !

Sandamuni Pagoda – A White Beauty

A visit to Sandamuni Pagoda in Myanmar was always part of my travel itinerary. Situated at the southwest of Mandalay Hill, this breathtaking Buddhist stupa was commissioned by King Mindon Min in 1874.

This pagoda contains the graves of the Kanaung, Sagu Mintha, Malun, and Maingpyin Princes.

It also contains an iron image of the Buddha cast by Bodawpaya in 1802, and removed from Amarapura by Mindon in 1874. The total weight of the statue is 18,563.2kg.

The golden chedi is the oldest structure on the grounds. It was constructed in 1874 by King Mindon Min on the site of his temporary Palace.

There are 1,774 shrines, each containing a single marble slab.

Keep aside a minimum of one hour for this pagoda and observe minutely how it has been built. Really a great spot for photography.

Exploring Ladakh With A Local Guide

Ladakh is no more a hidden gem. Millions of images are all over the Internet. When I was there I had no option but to approach a local travel agency to arrange a trip for Ladakh sightseeing. Why an agency? The reason is pretty simple. I do not know how to drive a bike, which is necessary if you want to explore this paradise by yourself. A guy gave me his number and told me that he can take me to a number of places at a discounted price. I trusted his words. Yes, not only he took me to a number of captivating places, but also briefed me about those places as a guide. One of those places is Sangam, which is the confluence of Indus and Zanskar Rivers. Located 35km from Leh in Nimmu, this confluence provides a fabulous view. Zanskar river, which comes from Zanskar valley of Ladakh, meets the Indus river at Nimmu. Enjoy a few snaps which I have clicked with my Canon 750D. Isn’t this place spectacular?

Capturing Hidden Beauty Of Kuala Lumpur

When it comes to photography, I do not have any specific agenda. I do not have any specific rule. I just keep clicking as long as the subject appeals to me. Some turn out to be good, while some bad. How about you ? Do you follow certain rules to get a perfect shot ? These images were from my earlier trip to Kuala Lumpur. Currently, I am using Canon 750D and Mi A3. How about you ?

Exploring Goa’s Panjim On Foot

As I always say the more you travel, the more you see. During a quick trip to Panjim, I encountered all these fascinating structures. Do you know why these structures exist? I have no clue. While some of these structures I spotted in the crowded markets, the other part of the capital city is also a sight to behold. I am talking about Panjim’s Latin Quarter. Brightly painted houses will take you to a by gone era. And the best part is you can explore all these places on foot. The whole idea was to get some unique images. And I am glad I was able to capture some interesting and vibrant houses in Panjim.

Exploring A Different Goa

A quick trip to Goa made me realize that the state is not all about beaches. While exploring some interior parts of the state, I stumbled upon these beautiful plants and leaves. Although I am unable to recognize them, I am glad I spotted them during the trip. I just wish I could have clicked more such pretty photographs of these plants. So next time when you visit Goa, try to explore a bit deeper so that you can encounter with such species.

Do you know me ?
