I loved nature and to live with the sound of nature since my childhood. The man reason for that would be my parents, specially my father who loves every element of nature and enjoys the beauty of nature immensely.

Since my adolescence, during which I learned there is something called “nature photography”, I always wished for a camera of my own.

But it was only 4 years back; I could by a DSLR camera, even though I used to photograph things with a small pocket camera, before that.My very first DSLR camera was canon 1100D, which is not even a semiprofessional one; nevertheless I’m still using it for my photography. It has helped me a lot in my craving for nature photography and has gone through a lot of grievances with my unprofessional aggressive photographing techniques.

After starting working in Mannar, my photographic opportunities went a long way by leaps and bounds, beyond the usual backyard photography I used to practice.

I consider myself lucky working there as it gives me a lot of experience in natural beauty and I was able to get to know some of talented and experienced photographers. 

Mannar is a place where there is a lot of untouched nature, although it is been invaded by the modern technology and irrational land distributing systems now, day by day.

Although I’m still a neonate in photography who just started learning it, I have captured some moments I am satisfied with. most of them were captured during th blue hour and the golden hour with my 18-55mm lens.

JUNGLE PRINIA ( Prinia sylvatica )

My knowledge about birds is very poor. Nevertheless, I try my best to study them. 
However, irrespective of my unawareness ,  the enthusiasm to photogrpah them, never fades away.

These two photos show JUNGLE PRINIYA, which I captured at Cheddikulam Base Hospital premises today.

It is a commonly seen resident breeder in Sri Lanka.

Cute snails ?? seriously? you might be thinking. Well... they are, to me. 

Despite of the love I have developed regarding snails, I really dont know much about them. Therefore, before postig these few photos of "my cute snails", I read a bit about the snails of Sri Lanka.

According to the facts I have learnt there, there are 246 species of land snails here. Out of them, 218 of them are endemic to Sri Lanka. Quite a large no..! Isn't it?

So, have a look at some of my photos and tell me how you feel about them.
