Glimpses of Nature

Hopefully my workload will go down next week, and so will this temperature-humidity combination. Till then I am posting a few photos I took during the trip to my aunt's house in Asansol last weekend. Clicking on a photo will take you to a bigger version of that photo in my Flickr album in a new browser window.

Palm Silhouette
The Palm Tree: Taken just after Sunset at the Asansol Ramakrishna Mission

Mother and Child
Mother and child drops on a lotus leaf... around the same time, same place. Had to use the flash, but I would have loved to take this photo in natural light.

Meditative Crow
A meditative crow at the Belur railway station. He had just missed his chance to grab the paper bag we threw away after finishing the samosas, and was planning the next course of action.

Yellow Lily

A yellow lily at a friend's place. Since I had to be out in the sun for some other work, I decided to make the best use of it. The shadow at the bottom right is me.

All these were taken with my Sony CyberShot DSC W5. My father bought a new camera and I chose the Canon Powershot A540 for him. It's a lovely camera, though I'm yet to explore all its features. Here's a photo taken by that camera at my home in Salt lake to conclude the post. This flower is known as Kanchan in Bengali, and its scientific name is Bauhinia Acuminata.
