• Hi There,

    Welcome to GreenGlowPhotography, the blog that showcases a unique style of Landscape Photography.

    Our goal is to reveal the 'extra-ordinary with in the ordinary' by using the right blend of Transient, Faint and Creative light. What you are about to see is quite unique and often hidden from our day-to-day lives. They are all phenomena of natural world captured with our own creative twist to it.

    Please feel free to have a browse-through and enjoy our work. Don't forget to share your thoughts as well; they will encourage us to see-further, go-longer and work-harder.

    Just to start you off with something we believe in,

    "About the natural world, in simple terms, we can be in the same place, day & time every year looking at the same thing or direction. Do we see a difference? may be not. Now, lets look at it from a different perspective. These are 'moment of nature'. No two moments of nature are the same. We certainly can see these differences and enjoy every bit of them if we tap in to that moment and see things from mother nature's perspective "

Weekly Photograph – “Three Huts”

Greetings Folks,

This week I’m going to share one of my favorites; as most of my work its a wide field astro combined with light painting. I captured this during my last visit to BAF with HantsAstro. This single image contains around 200 photos. Around 170 for the stars and 30 for the foreground.

Hope you like it.

Weekly Photograph – “Shades of Brown, Patches of Green”

Greetings Folks,

As a landscape photographer, I love winter as the season offering the most dramatic moments of nature to photograph. But Autumn is not far behind. I’ve always been a big fan of warm colors of Autumn as you see in this weeks photo.

This was shot in October 2012. My wife and I climbed Pen-Y-Fan, the highest peak in South Wales & southern UK (with a height of 2,907 ft) . The trek was pretty cool and we loved it. Weather was great too. This is one of the many photos I captured during the journey. I loved the valley below, colors and the action in the clouds. The depth of light contrast was too great for a single shot hence took 5 photos, 1 EV apart using auto – bracketing. Nothing magical in post processing; used HDR Technique to rebuild what I saw.

Both of us enjoyed our trek which took pretty much the whole day; the picture shares one of the many glorious views we enjoyed. Hope you guys like it too.

Weekly Photograph – “The Dawn”

Greetings Folks,

I was off to West Lulworth last weekend. Weather was not great. In fact terrible, most of the weekend 🙂 . When I looked at the weather forecast I saw a glimpse of hope; couple of clear hours Sunday early morning.

While walking around on Saturday I saw couple of interesting places good for early morning photographs but all of them required some adventurous trekking. Although I usually visit the location of the photo before hand the pouring rain didn’t allow that on Saturday. Then came Sunday. I left my cozy room early morning around 4 am. I had about a 20 to 30 minute trek to the location I aim to be by the sunrise. This involved going through small jungle, climbing a steep cliff under very slippery muddy conditions. Most of the places I drowned up to and above my ankle in the mud. With heavy winds, the last bit of the trek was very precarious if not most of it.

On the top of the cliff all I could hear was the sound of the sea; I could see the small town of West Lulworth from a distance; rest of the scene was pitch dark with faint-ish lines of horizon and sea; I had few feet to move around as one side had a steep descend and all the other sides ended up as cliffs to the sea. If you could live the moment with me, you would certainly understand that I had to sit down, calm my self and get use to the conditions before doing anything 🙂 .

After settling down, and letting my eyes adjust to the conditions I set up my tripod/camera and waited for the right moment. As it was very windy, I had to hold down the tripod with my weight to stop camera shake. After few photos, clouds started rolling in hence headed back.

I love the photo and most importantly my adventure…..!!!
