Feel of the places through my lens...

Hi everybody,

I am doing something like this, for the very first time!! But Pretty excited about getting such an opportunity.
I am talking about the Travel photo contest by Blogadda in association with Pringoo.
Here you go...My 5 photographs for the contest!

1. With each sunrise, we start anew...


This was captured on a bright Sunny morning, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, just when the Sun popped up. It was as refreshing as it could be, the colors and the grandeur of the ocean made it a life time experience.

2. We can, if we think we can...


I captured this, when I went to Navy Pier, Chicago! Oh my, the scale of this giant wheel made me look at it amazed for quite some time! How it carries people day in and day out, people shouting out of joy and fear - is a sight of marvel!! The colors against the blue sky is a treat to the eyes!

3. In all things of nature there sure is something of the marvelous...


I still remember the day I stood in front of this place with my eyes wide open, shivering in cold, and dumbstruck by the scene in front! This is Haleakala Volcano Crater on the Island of Maui, Hawaii. You can find more about this place here.

4. Nature always wears the colors of the spirit...


Here is the true color of nature! One evening, when the sun is disappearing for the day, it sure shows its true colors! I caught this in Grand Canyon, Arizona on a peaceful evening! Sure it is a moment that will never fade away from my memories!

5. The greater difficulty, the more glory in surmounting it...


The picture and the verse go hand in hand!! This scene was shot in Maui, Hawaii! There are thousands of people who do this sport there! Watching them having fun fighting through the waves is very inspiring!

Picking out just 5 pictures from thousands has been really difficult, but given the constraint, it did give me contentment to post these.

Also with the French open in full swing, I hope Roger wins the title this time too!! So here is the image from Pringoo which has promoted Roger too!!
