Catching the fleeting scenes of many splendored life with a camera.

Moth plant.

There’s something very romantic about the way a parachute or propeller seeds drift on currents of air or blow in the wind as if they’ve taken on a life of their own.
On the outside, moth plant fruit looks plain and unremarkable, but it has a surprise inside.

Spring colours. Red, lilac, pink, white, yellow, blue, violet and their hues.

In Spring, wherever you turn your head you find something blooming, flowering or singing. Every year I discover something new in apparently familiar environment — that's the beauty of observing the Nature. Red is my favourite colour — to my eye, without something red the scene lacks verve, impetus, energy, passion. Even a drop of red makes everything look more vivid.

Life in Inanimate Things. Gemstones.

Minerals are widely used in alternative therapies since they're believed to have some kind of inner energy. Boffins will argue there's no scientific evidence for it, but I go by the rule that

'There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.'

(Hamlet Act 1, scene 5, 159–167)


As I see it, anything that took Nature millions of years to create has to be special.
