As shared through the Annual Glimpses, 2013 was again a very eventful year for us and we explored some new aspects of Photography. These were not only about travel but lot more than that. With continuous support of our viewers, authors, Photographer friends, mentors and close friends, we got some exciting opportunities in 2013. Many of you came to us with different types of Photography projects and we also executed some of them with equal enthusiasm. Thanks you all ! But the most memorable and exciting Photography experience was Aerial Photography Project in Madhya Pradesh. This Photo Journey is sharing some of the photographs which are not part of real project delivery, but few random shots taken on the way to Muraina from Delhi
A friend of mine, Smita Dhall, recommended me for this project and Viveck helped to prepare well to plan and execute it. After exchanging few emails and a meeting, it was finalized to the shoot in one day. Plan was to start in a chopper from Greater Noida, land at Marena which is district headquarter of one of the district in Madhya Pradesh. Shoot some of the important monuments and locations and come back on same day. I can't share more about the project but this whole day was a very special experience. Quick flights from one location to another, taking aerial shots, special hospitality by MP officers and met with some of the popular Indian faces. But for me the most special part was photographing the beauty of Murena district from height.
If you not aware of Aerial photography, then let me define is again for you :) .. It's about taking photographs of ground from an elevated position and in our case, it was the chopper which used to take us to a point from where we could capture things well. From Murena, few local folks joined us to guide us through right route and locations.
Most of the photographs shared in this Photo Journey are shot on the way from Greater Noida to Murena via Agra. These water bodies looked most beautiful from top, although we clicked lot of villages, brick furnaces, huge farmlands etc.
Above photograph shows the Noida Expressway, which connects Noida with Greater Noida. This is extended further through Yamuna Expressway which has reduced the travel time to Agra. It seems that Agra is 2.5 kilometers away from Delhi now. It was awesome to see fast moving vehicles on these highways, especially when vehicles were moving in opposite direction of our Helicopter.
