I quite enjoy doing the sky watch posts. I was thinking about what to post yesterday and I realized there was no sky pictures left that were worth posting from my previous trips. At times like these I rummage my old folders quite thoroughly and I usually find something.
But today I picked up my cup of tea and went to the terrace to see if the evening sky would throw some drama for me. I walked just with my cell phone. But One look at the sky and I went back to get my camera.
There was a lot of drama in the evening sky. I had a cup of tea in my hand, Chhavi was out with Seshadri playing somewhere and I have one week of vacation to look forward to! It was a really happy combination! So, instead of clicking a lot of pictures I clicked a few and then savored my tea and the idea that I have one week off from work and that Chhavi and I are traveling alone!
But then the sky compelled me leave my musings and pick up the camera again. The sky today evening was beautiful in my part of the world.
So, from Sunday, Chhavi and I start a small trip again to Shivpuri region near Rishikesh. I have to remember to click many sky pictures so that I do not run out of them till my next trip, whenever that happens. It is also one of those rare trips when i have a day off before I start the trip. I plan to sleep in late tomorrow morning. May you have a bright weekend.
The sky was truly magical on 15th August in my parts. It was also India’s independence day! I was glad I was out with my camera in my balcony.
A little later the sky was of a darker hue.

These days the sky in the city has been just one color mostly, Grey. And for the whole week I had been fretting what am I going to post for skywatch! But then I know I still have a few pictures in store from my Spiti trip in 2007. I wish I would go there again and this time I would pay proper attention to th sky, in 2007 all the sky pictures are incidental, I was not really aiming to capture it.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
