DPC Sunday Photo Walk at Parvati Hills

Date: 21st August 2016, Sunday
Place: Parvati Hills

On the occasion of the World Photography Day (19th Aug), Delhi Photography Club 's Pune arm had arranged a free photo walk at the Parvati Hills, arguably one of the highest points in Pune.

The weather was tricky. When the group of around 10 people started the walk after the initial introductions, it was sunny but as the day progressed dark clouds engulfed the sky completely and a little bit of drizzle was on its way as well. The fickle characteristics of weather provided a unique challenge to all the participants to quickly adjust the camera settings according to the frequently varying lighting condition.

There were total 5 temples at the top, the Shiva- Parvati temple being the most prominent and the largest one, along with the Peshwa Museum and the final resting place (tomb) of the great Maratha warrior Balaji Bajirao. Even if one is a non-believer, one can still visit the place because of the historical significance of this place. Pune is a place full of history, after all!

1.5 hours ended rather quickly and the group reassembled at a small tea stall for a brief chitchat, after which we parted ways, promising positively for the next event!

Would like to Thank the DCP co-ordinators Mr Arun and Mr Tushar for taking the initiative and effort to organize such tours, Hope to see some more in future.

Firstly, the participants (thanks to DPC team) of the walk.



Below are some of the photos that I captured during the photo walk. All photos are in low resolution.

Apart from the Camera body (Canon 5D Mark III) and Kit Lens (24-105 mm), no other equipments had been used.
