1st Jan, 2011
2010 is gone and a warm welcome to 2011. Last year was when my interest in photography grew to newer heights. Last year was also when I decided to record my experiences and express my self on the internet and that is why I started this photo blog.
My new year morning started with a trip to a place which I had visited a numerous times, especially after getting 70-300mm lens. Yes, it is Hebbal lake. Again being a winter morning there was lovely mist around the lake so for first few minutes I clicked few shots of the mist ridden lake. I had got better shots of the lake during my earlier trip do I did not bother to take much shots rather I was waiting for the sun to break out. Because of the slight mist the early morning sun light was nicely diffused over the lake giving it a lovely golden glow. I got some nice silhouette shots of pelican flying across the lake.

This time around I came across Tickell's Blue Flycatcher which posed for just enough time for me to get a shot.
