Stories in Light by Bruce Munro – Art that blooms at night!

The Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California, gifted me a lyrical evening where the main protagonist is light. I got to experience a unique blend of imagination and craft, art and science, dark and light, silence and music, and fantasy and reality. British artist Bruce Munro took me away to an unknown world where darkness was a stage and light, a performer!
His creation, beautifully named Stories in Light, is an art installation that blooms at night. It gifts us wonder, beauty and joy – the intangible yet fundamental components of our life and existence.

Death Valley National Park – A water-less wonder!

After seeing the Death Valley National Park, I named it a water-less wonder. The vast golden landscape is interesting not only to a geologist but has an appeal to a photographer, and an artist. A good photographer can perhaps capture the beautiful and brutal, dry and dangerous, hot and harsh landscape along with small remnants of life. An artist can reveal the presence of a strange silence in Death Valley like no one else. You and I are mere spectators of this vast wonder named  Death Valley.

Little River Inn – An inspiring gem on the Northern California coast!

If you want to take some time off from the hurried pace of your daily life then Little River Inn on the Pacific coast in Mendocino County is a perfect choice. I recently visited the beautiful Pacific coast in northern California and stayed at the Little River Inn which I found to be an inspiring gem. The beautiful surrounding instills peace with a seeping certainty. The warm welcome that I received even at night around 11:15 pm, made me comfortable instantly. The gracious, good-hearted and gentle people in this beautiful hotel made my stay an unforgettable one.

Bryce Canyon National Park – a masterpiece of nature!

Some hundreds of years ago there lived a man in the rugged landscape of Utah – a place where survival for an extended period of time was difficult. He was an ordinary man who built a home for his family, a canal for his crops and his cows and a road to collect wood. He used to collect woods to keep them warm during the dark hours of the winter night. One day, he could not find his cow and went to search her. After a while, he not only found his cow but something ethereal. He was not prepared to see what he saw! Ebenezer Bryce unknowingly discovered today’s Bryce Canyon National Park that attracts thousands of tourists throughout the year.

Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America!

I believe a large water body, be it a river, sea or lake, has a profound effect on men and women living near it. I lived near the beautiful Lake Geneva for six years. That lake has become a part of me. Perhaps in my subconscious mind, I long for the silence that I used to enjoy while walking along the shores of the Lake Geneva.  When I saw Lake Tahoe, I was overwhelmed with joy. After almost 2 years, I saw a lake similar to Lake Geneva where I spent countless hours thinking and reflecting on life and death.  Among many romantic gateways in California, the beautiful Lake Tahoe, which is the largest alpine lake in North America, will take the first place.

Beautiful, Blissful, Bountiful Travel Moments – A photo essay!

If you ask me to describe my 2017 travel moments in three words, I would choose beautiful, blissful and bountiful. Beautiful places inspired me. Blissful evenings in a beautiful place injected peace in me. Bountiful nature enriched my soul. At the end of 2017, when I look back, I can still feel waves on my feet, I can still hear the sound of leaves inside the forest, I remember the stories of people from the streets of India, I can still feel the excitement when I showed my daughter a waterfall and snow for the first time. Let me share with you some of the beautiful, blissful, and bountiful travel moments of 2017. A photo essay for you all.

Why do I travel? I travel to meet life; I travel to feel things which I otherwise forget during the humdrum of daily routine.
