The Magic of White

Sissu

Life churns in the lap
Of the wilderness of white.
My heart savoured the
Glistening spectacle of white!

My body shivered in
The icy breeze with delight.
As my soul got drenched
In the magic of white !

These moments were captured by me in the extreme cold condition at Sissu , Himachal Pradesh ( -5 or -7°C). I was completely mesmerized by this face of nature and it was tough to take the photo with my bare hands, the cold was cutting through my bones. But I was adamant to capture these moments by  testing my limits.

I hope you guys equally enjoy this…

    There should be a condition named ‘photographer’s finger’ for these numb hand conditions.
