7-day Nature challenge – Day 5


Thanks to Amyย (do click the link!) for nominating me for this challenge. She’s a terrific photographer; her macro work and her shots of Texan parades are a treat to behold, not to mention her Grand Canyon vistas!

Chandigarh celebrates its Rose festival in the end of February. The Rose garden is at its best around this time and the weather is just about perfect for a day out, in among the flowers. This rose was lit so beautifully by the rising sun that I took at least a dozen shots so that I would have at least one good one in the end. ๐Ÿ™‚



About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  1. The details of the rose petals and lighting are remarkable! I have a lot to learn to taking flower photos from you. Thank you, Dr. Hb! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. the picture is so authentic, you could almost stroke the velvety smoothness of the petals. On another track and sorry for putting it on this blog, but I saw this.. and thought of you ( as they say..)

    Word of the day – Exhaustipated ( meaning.. too tired to give a shit!)
