While traveling to different countries for last 10 years, I was lucky to be present in a few occasions when nature took the lead and played with colors.
In fact, after witnessing the first twilight while traveling from Kathmandu to Sonouli, a border town of Nepal, I got bewildered.
As the time passed by, twilights or “The Golden Hour” as it is fondly called, attracted me like a magnet and wherever I go, I pray that I should get to see The God’s Easel(as I say) to witness, absorb and capture it to my heart’s content. In the same trip, I experienced more such twilights at different altitude giving it a visual treat. In Inverness, the lenticular twilight gave me a heady feeling and in Mauritius, standing on a knee deep water, I was mesmerized by the beauty and grandeur of the golden hour. After a day’s work, Kolkata, my hometown, presented me a fantastic evening with its colors spread across the bank of the Ganges. During my stay for a year or so in Tanzania, I could capture the last dhow on a twilight in Dar-es Salaam. It happened like a diamond glimpse! On a shivering winter, in Germany, a twilight is more unexpected and that too with colors, but it happened! In Seychelles the God listened to my prayers and in Cairo it was unexpected completely. In this series, I included twilights of Nepal, India, Egypt, UK, Germany, Tanzania, Switzerland, Mauritius and Seychelles to offer you a visual treat which I feel a must to be shared!
