Lalbagh flower show (Jan 2011)

January 23, 2011

This is my third visit to flower show. Last time in August 2010 I had got some decent macro shots. Usually I tend to plan photography trip on Saturdays and leave Sunday as a rest day. However this time, thanks to tamasha held by Karnataka government which led to a bandh on Saturday, I had no option but to visit Lalbagh on Sunday. Being a Sunday I knew that it will be crowded, so i reached at around 7.30 AM thinking that I'll miss the crowd and get some opportunity to shoot birds early morning. However I was disappointed to see that there were plenty of people in the garden and most of them were waiting for the flower show to open. I spent some time roaming around in the garden and by 9 AM I entered into the flower show. This place was too crowded and at some places there was hardly any space to take photos. With whatever time and space I got I managed to get few shots. Though for me this trip was a major disappointment. All the shots below are taken with my trusty Nikon D40 and Sigma 150mm macro lens.
