Memories of 2015 in Photographs

The Year 2015 has been a significant year for me. I launched this website in December 2014, so starting from the 2015 my main intention was to make this site live and update with images in regular basis and along with travel to various destinations as much as I can. Once I started to sorting out my images, I realised that I am among those who enjoy mostly in outdoor and capture images on the field and very sluggish about the work that starts after you came back home from a trip. It is really a time consuming task to clean up the old images from your hard disk that you have captured for the past 7/8 years and process them for presenting.

 

With respect to travel , I started this year with my journey into the Kaziranga,Assam followed by Gibbon WLS near Jorhat. February I went to Odhisa and travelled between Saktosia and Manglajodi. In March, I travelled to Sikkim and visited Barsey Rhododendron sanctuary. April was there for the Tigers in Bandhavgarh. Enjoyed every moment spent with the little cubs of Sukhi Patiha in Magadhi zone.

 

In July, I came to New Zealand for my job assignment and started exploring this beautiful land. Volcanos, Mountains, Lakes, Rocky Sea-shore, prone zone, antarctic animals, endemic birds, adventurous and outdoor friendly people, all these made New Zealand an unique and beautiful country. The year ended with a trip to South Island of New Zealand.

 

Here is a collection of some of the images from these journeys. I would not like to refer them as ‘Best of the 2015 photographs’, rather than couple of images from all the journeys that I have done in 2015. Hope 2016 will also be a crazy ride for me.
