Ancient City Ruins In Desert Landscapes

As a science fiction fan since I was a little kid - the most impressive moment for me in a story was always the moment we come across with bits and pieces of evidence that there was once a great civilization there.  Gigantic city ruins on the horizon of a distant planet is an idea that gives me the chills every time I think about it. Beholding the signs of an unknown civilization is exciting and inspiring.  Desert with its majestic vastness reminds me the ocean and space - and... continue reading

Journey to my first Editorial License

 It took up to five rejections to finally get one of my photo selected for Editorial License. Initially I was uploading macro shots, but none got selected. The reason was pretty simple. You need something special and newsworthy. Some of the rejections were the best photos I'd shot and I was pretty disheartened. I was wondering what it would take to get a photo approved for the Editorial License.Now I come from India. It is place with a diverse cultural identity. You may not believe it, but... continue reading

DeadVlei, Namibia, the most beautiful dead place you'll ever see

Among the towering red dunes of Namib-Naukluft National Park in the central Namib Desert is an area known as Sossusvlei. It is a strange and alien landscape where, over the thousands of years, the sand has literally rusted. Nearby here there is an even more ancient "place of no return":DeadVlei; its name means "dead marsh" (from English dead, and Afrikaans vlei, a lake or marsh in a valley between the dunes). It is a white clay pan also referred to as "Dooie Vlei" which is the original fully Afrikaans... continue reading
