The Wikipedia definition says that “a sundog is an atmospheric phenomenon that creates bright spots of light in the sky, often on a luminous ring or halo on either side of the sun”. You can read more about sundog in picture was shot from the terrace of the apartment in Electronic city phase 2 in Bangalore where I was living for a while. I noticed this when I was just walking on the terrace of the apartment on a normal evening. This was the first time I was witnessing this phenomenon, before that I had seen the pictures of sundog in the “Astronomy Picture of the Day” website of NASA. I ran back to my apartment to get hold of my camera so that I could take pictures before it vanished.

Arial Rain View

It was an amazing scene, to view the rain from the top of Nandi Hills. I was on a family picnic to Nandi hills on that afternoon. Around 6:00 pm all of a sudden they sky became cloudy and windy. People were rushing towards their car to escape from the rain and this view was not noticed by many in the rush. The rain that you see in the above pictures was approaching the hill and after a short while of 10 minutes it reached and rained violently for an hour.

A Fuzzy Rainbow

I got this picture of the rainbow on a cloudy evening on the highly polluted sky of Electronic city. The sun was so bright and the rainbow was very vague making it difficult to photograph it.

The Most Photographed Celestial Event

Sunset may be the most photographed celestial event, and the most watched beautiful celestial event by humans. Who does not like to stop by and watch a beautiful sunset?

Reflections of Melancholy

I got this picture during another Wayanad trip. The picture was shot from somewhere near Gundlupetta.
