Though I have already rounded up 2015 with my awesome highlights of 2015, but incredible moments of 2015 are stuck deep in mind and giving a jolt of nostalgia as I enter 2016. During the ongoing long weekend that started on 31st Dec 2015 and to end on 3rd Jan 2016, we opted out of traveling & welcoming New Year with friends & family. The joy of flipping through thousands of photographs shot in 2015 is overwhelming.
We traveled from the middle Tibet i.e. Trans Himalayan region of Spiti Valley to Centre of India i.e. Chhattisgarh & Madhya Pradesh. From Himalayan to Narmada, nature threw myriad surprises onto us and we tried to capture them with best of our capabilities.
So while taking a fond look back at the thrilling experiences of 2015, we are awestruck on few photographs primarily because of the imposing natural beauty and also because of the efforts putting in by us to reach those places. Every moment captured in these photographs was unique and as they say each of these photographs speaks thousand words.
