Life and lifeless in Bangalore



Nature has a way of portraying the different facets of life, the contrast between being full of life and bereft of the same. Its amazing how both these perspectives are in the same location . Sankey lake, Bangalore .

Yes, nature in full cycle.
Are these egrets or herons, the birds in the first picture?
I Corkscrew State Park in Florida, there's one huge tree, really a giant of a tree, with dozens of stork's nests. The birds were chattering so loudly, one could here them from a mile away. Standing near the tree, the noise was deafening.

Happy New Year Backpacker!
I love your pictures of trees. Dead trees look so sculptural. I have taken photos of them, especially when they are on a hillside or moorland.

yup it is so true - nature always shows you the duality in every aspect of life - we as humans dont train to accept the positive and are so weak that we only see the negative in any situation....

Nature is full of life, so do we (bloggers)... then where did the lifelessness come into picture ? :)

The living tree harbouring life and dead tree branches are a contrast. Interesting observation and it's found at one spot! Good post.

I love how you are using trees too! The dead tree with it's incredible beauty of form and its neighbor as home and refuge to those huge birds.

Juhi said...

It is interesting how every part of nature lives in perfect harmony.... even though the branches are bare, they still give shelter to the birds....
