Wandering destination - Vangani : part II

Wandering destination - Vangani : part II


Bridge that bridged the gap:
After leaving IIT campus it was the first occasion for me, leave Cotigao trip apart, to go out with a camera. It was such a long gap but thanks to my sister - Prachi and one younger colleague of mine - Suraj, that both wished to learn basics of photography from me. The bridge over the Ulhas river, connecting nearby villages to Vangani, literally bridged the gap. It was the first object for me to be shot. It was early morning and light was so perfect penetrating between the pillars of bridge, casting shadows to make horizontal patterns on water - perfect situation for making HDR images. Intuition - or should I say experience was so right that image popped out after post-processing has become one of my all time favorite. There is pattern, texture, light , perspective and depth - almost everything a perfect photo must have. I took one more photo from the other side  when Sun was bit high in the sky. This allowed me to have clear reflections of bridge pillars captured.



Ecosystem:
As I have mentioned, this area is near to Sahyadri ranges and lush green in Monsoon season. Its mainly because of the variety of trees, shrubs the area hosts. Most of the plants found here are indigenous  a positive point for having sustained ecosystem. Soil is rich in nutrients as river, dams are plenty in this area. In short, a perfect place for findings birds, butterflies and other wild-life. Facts are far from truth. I could hardly notice butterflies - till date species is count crawling around 15 - Baronet was only one to have special mention. The bird species are also less in number. No news of hunting, deforestation or any other means to affect wild-life. There are few flowering plants seen, of course I need more observation to conclude anything related to flowers. Trees include flame of the forest, red silk cotton tree. In summer season the dominant flower on ground is Mexican Poppy.

Landscapes photography:
Major attraction here is the view of Chanderi fort & Nakhind forts, which are easily visible on East side of Vangani station. In the evening, the sky behind these forts get filled up with many colors, variety of shapes of clouds. Evening one hour, breeze in the air, falling temperatures around the dusk time - one hour orchestra and nature is the master. I have presented here some silhouettes in these two posts.
