On my ‘blogiversary’ I share my amazing experience of witnessing a dark sky and my first attempt at successfully capturing it. I kept this few months old, much-treasured moment for this special day. It was the dark night of Diwali far from all the lights and sounds of the city in the forest of Dubare. We stayed in the Jungle Lodge and Resort property – Dubare Elephant Camp, in close vicinity of the gentle giants.
In my quest to explore the forests of India, I travelled to Bandipur National Park this time just after the monsoon. Yet the rains were not over in Karnataka as the monsoon stretched its span this year in the Western part of India. Forests always look pretty when dressed up in foliage and the monsoon is the best makeup artist for them. The only worry was spells of rain must not spoil the safari. With not much hope of sighting and just being in the forest, we reached Bandipur.
