Beautiful rays of the setting sun peeking through the sunflower petals… The warmth of the scene is such a feast to the eyes. I was just driving without any plans in mind over a weekend, just to kill the time and went pass this beautiful farm at Elverson, Pennsylvania. Watching the setting sun lighting up these golden flowers was such a beautiful scene. Most of the flowers in the farm were almost died, and I had to run around the place before the sunset to find the few remaining sunflowers that have fresh petals. These pictures are a humble try to recreate that evening feeling…
Overcast light glowing the greens against the silver thread lines created by water adding up to the beauty of Delaware Water Gap in Bushkill Falls during the spring. Here are some photos from my day trip.

Niagra waterfalls park is touristy(period)!
And this blog post is no different. It’s just the obvious shot of the Niagra falls, that you find everywhere in the internet, that everyone have on their phone. Still, ‘Cave of the winds’ and ‘maid of the mist’ are the other obvious things worth trying in the Niagra Falls state park if you consider yourself as a tourist. The sound and feel of the water when you go close to the bottom of the American Falls is something I quite enjoyed.
Two times I have been there, it’s hard to find something that’s worth a portfolio image. All I find is people taking their own selfie. I can not cross the US border to get the wide angle view of Horseshoe falls either. So this is one of the trips, where camera either stays inside the bag, or in the car itself. When the lights are on after the sunset, I thought of trying a horizontal pano with three images(which I have never tried before), and a wide angle shot of the same composition.

Here are some experimental long exposure photographs of the Ben Franklin Bridge over Delaware riverfront in Philadelphia. I have been there, walking through the Race street pier towards Penn’s landing multiple times watching the beautiful lights from bridge, letting the cold air breeze through my hair. These lights and peer always feels bit historic, but with the wonderful smell of draft beer from beer gardens near the walkway.
This photos are taken over different days mostly after sunset, but with one thing in common – cloudy overcast miserable sky. It did worked well to bring up the contrasty and vibrant bridge.

Boston is a beautiful city with lot of history and good seafood. While it is a city to be explored on the feet, a 30F day during the winter was’t the best time to be around. I reserved all my energy for two photos, one from the skywalk observatory on the night and other one from the Fan pier park during the noon.
First plan was to head to the Skywalk observatory as it was open till 10 at night and there was no point in exploring the downtown in freezing cold. My prior observatory experiences in New York city as a tourist, didn’t let me take my tripod on to the skywalk. Shooting handheld at high ISO, fighting with the reflecting lights from large glass windows of the observatory was something I had to fight with, even though it was not that bad due to less crowd.
Next day late morning we were at Fan Pier park. Harsh light, no clouds, freezing cold, and chilly winds frequently hitting the pier did cut down my options to explore for better composition, and ended up with a black and white. I would go there again if I get a chance to shoot a beautiful sunset with with city lights. Until then these will photos remain the favorites from Boston.
Few photos from the trip to YellowStone and Grand Tetons. This gallery is for the Majestic views of waterfalls in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.
We managed to rush to the view point before the sun goes down for the day. These falls is nearly twice as high as Niagra falls, and is ‘do not miss attraction’ in the Yellowstone park loop.
