Amazing to see the date and then the image...it is certainly indicative of the notion that you are on a completely different longitude than I. My suspicion is that his place does not see nor know of snow....Very nice Pankaj...Your landscapes are special because we know who you are through your other close in images and seeing these from your eyes is quite enjoyable!

Hello Pankaj,
Well done. Peaceful landscape. Very good lighting also in the foreground. I also like the reflection in the shallow water.

Hi Pankaj. You have taken this beautiful place so well. You POV gives us a wide view over the water. Very good detai land colours. With the refection in the water fron the trees. well done TFS.

This landscape image evokes a sense of peace in my mind, Pankaj.
Away from the madding crowds in big cities, you lead an idyllic life in Raipur and its surroundings.
The image is beautifully balanced in terms of land, water and sky.
A Wordsworthian experience for me here.

Hi Pankaj,
It is wonderful to come back and see yet another scene from Charming Chattisgarh.You live in such a beautiful part of this country where life is at its own pace and nature embraces ou in every step.The scene is peaceful and soothing and the composition a wonderful combination of symmetry, colours and creative vision.I especially like the towering tree to the left which adds a very dynamic element to the whole composition.
Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful work of art.

Hi Pankaj,

Each time I see a beautiful landscape from India I yearn for a return trip to your country. This is just lovely with the green shrubs, trees and the wonderful sky and the lake with the magnificent reflections. Colors, clarity and composition are all outstanding.


Hello Pankaj
I am sure it will not be overly difficult to fall in love with beautiful location. Such a serene scene. You did good work with the wide angle lens and the composition suggest that you gave this photo and the countryside some good though over before you actually photographed it. That water surface is as still as can be and gave a perfect mirror reflection. Lovely depth in the photo and the tree on the right helps to give some perception of scale. Thanks for your welcoming comments on my 1st photo. Rehanna

Hello Pankaj,
This is a superb tranquil scene, the far end of this small lake reflecting a great horizon of trees and bushes that would make any naturalist excited. Taken in fine lighting this is a joy to view and thanks for sharing it.
Best wishes,

Hi Pankaj.
What a nice scene and clear shot. I am amazed with 3D-effect, clean rich and natural colours, great reproduction of the water surface and reflections in it. Details of the entire scene are stunning as well as the POV and composition of the shot. Well done and thanks.
