Behind the 'Yala' Borders

It's always amazing to see through the lens, which narrow down our scope to see only what matters. Its proven to myself once again in the journey we went to the sacred Kabaliththa. 

First we worshipped Sacred Kiriwehera, Katharagama Dewalya then travelled through a lengthy route to Kotiyagala. This is where we got our comfortable 4+ wheel drive (A Tafe Tractor). On the way to the borders of Yala, so much beauty and dust grabbed us.

Covered by the dust, stillm the passing beauty could easily capture me. Using Samanala's Camera (A friend of mine - music and nature lover) I tried to paint it on to the image Sensor.

Some images are listed here, not in the shooting order. Always the nature is a wonder, that what matters!

Wish I had more time to be in that freedom!

Light and the darkness

It is amazing what light can create. It is fascinating what the darkness can form.
It is more amazing and more fascinating   what the combination of both can create......

Tiny wild life

I love photography; there is no doubt about it. But there is nothing other than wild life which made me crazy about it.
Wild life is not only about gigantic elephants, lazy yawning lions or flamboyant birds.….
Have a look at these tiny insects. See the beauty they add to the nature. That is the wild life I love most.

Some unknown insects (male and female) in their mating action.

Furry spider waiting for a prey

It is only about 1 cm in length.

A dragonfly. Is it a mash skimmer ?
I’m not very sure . 

By the way, do you have any idea about the difference between a dragonfly and a damselfly?

A tropic dart

A common silver ring. Look at the real silver color on its wings.

Who’s this fellow? Actually I have no idea. But I like its pose.

Macro Life

I'm impressed with Macro life, it has its own beauty and variety we see everyday, everywhere. But always there's something that we haven't figured out yet, Our eyes has not seen yet. Therefore with a DSLR I played along with the Macro World, a minor change of angle could change the whole perspective of how I see them.

Thanks to Sankha Malith for allowing my hands on his new Cannon 1100D, all the best to him in his photography journey.

Drops of pearls

I have a small story to tell you about these pictures.

They were the first rain drops that crossed the atmosphere after a long run. On their way to kiss the earth's cheeks and lips, they did not forget to say hi to the plants and to the flowers who were missing them since a long time.
It made the flowers and leaves to dress themselves up with pearly rain drops.

Have a glance and tell me how do you feel about them

There is another story....

Previous night, Sepalika tree gave life breath to its flowers as usual. They were smiling spreading their fragrance while unexpected rain started pouring. They were helpless and had to give up the tree.But look at them, they are still smiling.

Southern Expressway - Sri Lanka

June 22-25, 2012

A Glimpse at Night
Southern expressway (E1) is a fresh experience to the Sri Lankans. That's because E1 is the first of their kind in Sri Lanka. We took our chance to travel through when we were heading to Katharagama temple as a pilgrimage organized by my office. On the way to Katharagama, I could capture this wonderful night photography scenery of the sparkling street lights by the 'Kurundugaha Hathakma' exchange.

First Light of the Dawn
While our home back, after 3 days, again we were experiencing a totally different scenery, the first light of the dawn has fallen across the Southern Expressway (E1) Sri Lanka, I got the opportunity to capture them as well.
