Good Snaps!

Seattle, Bellevue is very close to my heart. Some contributions from my side, from my many visits to Seattle Area.

Hi Misguidedmisile, thanks much and I am glad that you liked the pictures. one thing is that I am very lazy in handling / clicking photographs while on tour, secondly I believe in thoroughly enjoying what I see and slowly imprint that sight in my mind and heart rather than running here and there with a cam or a handy cam and striving for better pictures all the time. This task is delegated to my better half so credit goes to her and BTW the more you guys appreciate these snaps the more it's gonna be trouble for me @ home

Pictures in Redmond had skiing tracks? no in fact that was a street near our hotel. Yes, We did go skiing although not on the ski track but on the street itself. I skidded twice when the fallen snow dried up on the road surface and I walked normally instead of walking slow and carefully. Walking in the snow was quite some experience especially in the night when it starts snowing heavily !!

Thanks Pramod, Tulip garden is something which we missed due to the season. Also, was that snowqualmie falls? thanks for lovely snaps.

Anyway, continuing with my Vegas visit. Our main motivation to visit Vegas was Grand Canyon so we just roamed around the strip for two days once in the night and once in the day time and did not attend any paid shows as such. One full day was gone in Canyon and man it was worth that.

Time for some Vegas pics !!

View of the famous 'Strip' facing towards South (McCarran airport way)

Where else can you find the statue of liberty and eiffel tower at the same place side by side??

Continuing with 'The Grand Canyon'.... capturing the enormous nature of the canyon in a camera is a sin....which we committed....a camera can never do full justice to what we see and experience in the canyon. We were completely awestruck by its humongous presence and nature's charisma.....Why am I even taking pains to depict it through words.. let the pictures do the talking..

On our way to Canyon...Light n Shadow games of nature
Seattle-Redmond-San Francisco-Las Vegas-Newyork...USA through our eyes-dsc05206.jpg

A stream like that has created the Canyon over the years....

Lovely pictures there of Seattle and Redmond. It's quite rare that this area gets snow but, yes this time I came to know it was quite heavy. So lucky you to have witnessed it first hand.

Btw, do you work for Microsoft? If yes, which group? I am in the campus myself

Hey Abhi, Thanks and I am glad that you liked the pics. We missed the monterey bay area. I think it should be a must watch place along with the yosemite mountains.... if you happen to visit these places, please do post pics... !!!
