Pre-Monsoon Lonavla

Greenery in Nature is always an evergreen subject for photographers and others alike. Even when colour photography was not popular because of its costs, it never came in the way of photographers' persunace of the hobby. 

These are some pictures clicked on my return from Pune. Unfortunately, Expressways, though a boon to travellers, it is not very photographer-friendly. Nevertheless ....

The situation was not quite favourable from a photographer's point of view both because of the time of the day and the dark clouds but this 'fluorescent' hill by the side of the Expressway could not be missed.

 And then some B/W photographs which suited the time of the day and the pre-monsoon mood in the air :
Like sunsets and sunrises, this is another sight I am never tired of clicking on every opportunity. And  the first thing that comes to my mind always is "Bagalyanchi Maal Phule ajuni ambaraat........." by Pt Vasantrao Deshpande :
In Pune, apart from work, there was also some opportunity for bird watching and photography. But this can not be in B&W. Birds must get their due.
