Page 3 Elmo

Well, Elmo has many reasons to be happy these days including appearing in the media posing with some pretty actress for the Daytime Emmy Awards according to the Yahoo! News. And the other day he was in an elevated state of fluff (does he have a mind? ;-) )

Fiery Finale

There are one or two days in the entire year when the sunset is the kind you might see a few times in a lifetime. Thought I was through with boring sunset picture-postcard snaps until this day, when the sky seemed to be set on fire.

This was the view in our hall...

BEWARE (boring) TECHNICALITIES!: By the time I could set the tripod the sunset was just a dull red glow in the horizon, not much color that the human eye sould see. But giving the camera a 30 second exposure soaked up all the red hues there were in the sky and gave me this unexpectedly (unnaturally?) red sky. And this one is a HDR too... the room interior was too dark to be visible in which the sky details are clear...

Sky Scapes

This is the time of the year when the Pune sky comes up with some of its best cloud displays. The sky turns into an ever changing canvas of endless hues!

Sunday evening gave this. What I thought would look pretty average ended up quite decent!

Saturday afternoon: the black cloud looming large on the right is the thunderstorm....

Mysore almost always manages to come up with something spectacular. This time I got to see this rarely seen display. This phenomenon happens at the top portion of Cumulonimbus clouds.

I am unable to find that site which had information on this kind of phenomena...
