Cool & Cozy | Do you know what this photo reminds me of? That perfect equilibrium in your bed when the air conditioning is just cool enough to enjoy the warmth of your blanket that you don't really need ๐Ÿ˜. Hope you guys have an exciting summer ahead!

Yes, a fair amount of sorcery was involved in creating this photo. This brings me to a dichotomy of photography that I've realized needs to be in harmony. Researching, scouting, and planning around weather are often keys to landing that keeper shot. At the same time, you must also approach the task with an empty mind. While the former aids in the technical aspects, the latter lends to creative process. You will find yourself visualizing new possibilities. Suddenly, you're not just a photographer, but a sorcerer.

Seasoned astrophotographers may tell you to not bother shooting on a full moon night. Psst! Here's a secret: not necessarily true! More important than the moon phase are the moonrise/moonset times! So, if the ๐ŸŒž has set at 8 pm but the ๐ŸŒ™'s to rise at 2 am, you'll have ~4 hrs of darkness! Also, bear in mind what time the core of our galaxy rises above the horizon. Ergo, take into account all variables and plan accordingly.

Have you seen the mind-boggling deep-space image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope?? (It's in my story - or Google it!) 265,000 galaxies spanning 13.3 billion years of time!! ๐Ÿคฏ Our Earth is an invisible speck on our 105,000 light-years wide Milky Way. Just fathom how much space-time is represented in that image!! I can't! Do we really know anything about our own galaxy, let alone the entire cosmos?? I feel humbled.

Mother reminds me to pack enough warm layers and reiterates that i must curb my "daredevil" urges. fast-forward 48 hrs, her words are echoing in my mind as i'm mid-stream in a strong current with water up to my thighs, tripod in one hand, camera in other. falling is not an option. maybe i should've listened to her. the intense spray of skogafoss and sub-zero temperature are siding with her. yet, the other side beckons. it is untouched with promise of an exciting foreground. i pray the water doesn't get deeper. the rubber boots have taken in ice-cold water; my feet are numb. finally, i make landfall. click!
today, before posting on insta, i whatsapp'd this pic to my mum. first came ๐Ÿ˜ฎ, then ๐Ÿคจ. i told her how i got there...that there was a no-fuss trail from the parking lot ๐Ÿ˜.

Initiation ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ธ
the first location i photographed in iceland - it was cold and wet. in other words, "welcome to iceland!" what's cool about seljalandsfoss is that you can walk behind the waterfall and peer outside through the cascading veil. the winter spray was unforgiving. the loose rocks were slippery. fair to say, as a result, my senses were calibrated to "iceland" and i was set for the journey ahead!

Through my travels, i've come across many such "random" photogenic waterfalls. i had an epiphany. the very fact that these cascades are recognized by both the governing country's administration and its citizens fosters a sense of preservation. if only this sentiment is imbibed by humans from other parts of the world, our earth would be even more beautiful! i say this because back home, we have an abundance of random "non-touristy" waterfalls waiting to be appreciated!

Fun fact about glacial ice caves: they can kill you. Remember, glaciers are rivers of ice; ergo, constantly moving. Do not overstay your welcome in an ice cave as it could collapse and crush/trap you anytime. Even more fun are the crevices and fissures that can swallow you whole. Always advisable to explore with an expert guide like our cool dude Fannar!

The Keyhole 
I'd love to take you to this ice cave! But I cannot...why? Because it probably no longer exists! And that's another fascinating feature of these glacial ice caves - they are constantly changing, collapsing and appearing in other places. So every ice cave you visit will be unique to you!

"is it really that blue?" absolutely! walking into an ice cave has been one of the coolest experiences (pun intended). contrary to presumption, it was relatively warm inside! well, that's one new year's resolution taken care of ๐Ÿ˜. what about the other 2? i'm two away from 50 national parks. but doing groceries regularly - that's proving to be very challenging ๐Ÿ˜…

When out for an evening stroll in regions like Iceland or Norway, we are often transfixed on witnessing the Aurora. We are so focused on it that we tend to ignore the beautiful nocturnal canvas that stretches beyond - the night sky! Travelers get disheartened when the Aurora prediction is low - most don't even venture out. But trust me - you'd be missing out! These remote and pristine places have astounding night sky clarity! So next time you're out Aurora-hunting, enjoy the night regardless. Let the stars shine on you! โญ

Trance
We pulled over to the side of the road and alighted to survey the Icelandic night sky. Green. The Aurora was out to play! While I could've deployed my tripod there itself, I found myself walking closer to the mountain, the ice crunching beneath my boots. I was in a trance, oblivious to any mundane distraction like the cold. Funny thing is - that wasn't the first time I was mesmerized by a beautiful night sky. I'd say it has become more of a courting ritual.
