Welcome to the Thread Bhagath. Loved the last pic.

Couple of shots from a local AFL match at MCG last Friday. A long lens was sorely missed.
Some avoidable distractions at the bottom of the frame in the first image. Didn't want to crop it too much.

Thanks. Its shot from Bisleri bottle mounted on a dispenser. Like the first shot at MCG. A pana would have be really beautiful.

@ bhagathgowda - Liked the last pic.

Another closeup. Water drop view.

Loved the treatment done on Rosary church image. Curious to visit that place, probably this weekend. Someone wants to drive and I want to shoot
Had been there last week. 3/4th of the church is submerged, so you cant really get close to the church. Water should dry in 3-4 months time, that should be the right time to visit.

A couple of clicks from my side. Near Monterey, CA overlooking Pacific Ocean.

The bridge is called Rocky Creek Bridge about 15-20 miles from Monterey towards south.

Nice view, I might go crazy if stationed in such a place, because I love water, sea, lakes, streams

Its a familiar plant, but never seen a flower on it. Are you sure of the name ? How come the same plant in my balcony never has any flower on it !

At first look I had thought it's lavender. But the second pic (leaf) clarified it. I didn't know that panikoorka had such lovely flowers.

I think you have a potted plant right? This is actually in Kerala (though we have in Bangalore as well but not with flowers) and the plant covers a large part around a coconut tree. It's pretty old plant now. My dad is an agronomist, shall check with him if any specific reason for flowering.

Even I didn't notice thought its there since when we started staying in our home about 20+ years. Its quite tiny flowers, these were shot using the Sigma 70-300mm APO DG in Macro mode with lots of patience for focusing .
