Time to reflect

Another one from my cold storage, above is the reflection of some rocks on the Ganges river. Yes, this is also from Rishikesh. I've been craving to take some new shots, but haven't been able to get myself into that mood, much due to the uneventful weeks I've been having of late. Take yesterday for example. Varenya and myself spent about 8-9 hours formatting his hard disk and trying to install everything right from Windows, Mac OS X (x86) to Linux. We get one working, then install the other on another partition, and lo, neither of them will boot! They just won't co-exist on a single hard drive, and thus poor old Varenya has had to go back to using just Windows.

Whats astounding is the calm waters on one side with the waves on the other! Love the way the rocks are being reflected too. An absolutely wonderful capture !! This is most definitely on my top list of favorites from all your pics :)
Hope you get into the mood of taking pics soon... and that things take a turn for the better.

Thanks everyone. I'm seriously amazed how well this one has been recieved, cause I personally didn't think much about this photo.

Nice photo. How big are those rocks?? And poor Varenya.... back to my state.

Prateek said.. Reply

Thanks Souvik. Those rocks aren't very big actually, max. they'd come upto your waist I guess.

hey prateek,
help me by joining revieware. and also i am unable to install the x86 OS X on my Pentium D. Works fine on P4. Any idea why?

Prateek said.. Reply

You're not the first one to face that problem Abhishek. We've been trying to install it on one of my friends (Souvik) Pentium D too for quite sometime now, and have tried everything we could possibly think of, but in vain. More on his blog.

The pic's really calm and serene.. and somehow I found a rock near the water that looks somewhat like a dolphin!

Prateek said.. Reply

Ah yes, the one just to the left of the centre of the image does look like a dolphin. Nice find! :)

Amazing pic! Nice caption too..."Time to reflect". Our minds are like this pic sometimes...calm inside while the outside is turbulent or vice versa.

Prateek said.. Reply

How true Ma'am...turbulent inside and calm outside or vice versa.

Varenya said.. Reply

Hey rungta, good one as usual. Calm waters at d front and mini waves at the back. Good one!

Tarun said.. Reply

The pic is indeed very beautiful. Though I didn't like the reflection that much but the river in the topmost portion is rockin, it's like a place I so badly want to be at and spend my life in it's sweet surrender, and I could stay lost in this moment forever. I don't know from which song I remember those lyrics. But the pic is beautiful.

Well Rashmi if you - the only one with a 30-inch print of this photo, still can't make out the dolphin then god help you.
