Foggy Diagonal

Hide and Seek

Landscape, Travel Photography

I am always intrigued  how the clouds and fog always play hide and seek every time I take a vacation to the mountains. We take a right turn and we just go right through them, and just at the next turn we see the clouds covering the mountain tops. From my first visit to the mountains, it has been one of my fantasies to capture a unique cloud photograph in which we can visually experience what we actually feel.

The way the clouds just open up to give way to the sun to shine through is just mind blowing. In my last trip to Assam I got what i think, till date one of my best cloud and fog shot. I was walking down this small village road, leading to this tower, and the late evening light gave a nice warm look to it, and i ended up making this picture.

The Tower

It was only when i had completed a 30 minutes hike, searching for a better angle to photograph this tower that i realised how god plays his magic. The scene looked absolutely wonderful. Exposing for the white fog that had descended inside the gap of the two hills, gave me one of the most pleasing images i have ever made

The Tower of Cloudsthe two layers of white fog and the mountains in between, i literally was amazed at the sight. Mother nature has so many ways to surprise and enchant us. It becomes our responsibility to protect it, and we never know, we turn round the corner of a road and there it is, an amazing landscape waiting for us.
