Got an opportunity to take a ride down Kandy Mahiyangana road towards the dried up Victoria reservoir and dam. Never mind the dry weather, the area looked so gorgeous I was kicking myself that I was rushing back and did not have much time to work the shutters of my Camera. Anyways, here are some pf the pictures I managed to get when we stopped for a king coconut by the side of the road. I intend to visit the area by end of the month and hope to get some good pics of the area this time around.
I have never in my life seen the Victoria reservoir dried up this bad..... It is one terrible drought I guess.

It would be funny to say that the previous night I was playing with my Balls, but, that is exactly what I did with this fancy set of balls that emits lights of different colours. I was experimenting on long shutter speed exposure. Though these photographs defy the idea of this blog post, which is to have nature related photography, thought of sharing on blog.

After a long delay, thought of getting back in to action. With limited time I have to travel these days, the best photography I could get came around the neighborhood. Following is what I have in store for today. Hope you enjoy !

Few pics that I managed to capture from around the place... Nothing serious, but, thought of uploading anyways as it's been some time since I last did. Having time related issues in going about capturing photographs. Enjoy !
