Mumbai Trek list

Photography project Shivaji Maharaj and forts of Maharashtra 30th Oct 08

On range treks and strenous ones with limited time frame and little or no opportunity to unravel the photographic creativity. One cannot afford to wait for the tangent rays or that perfect angulation of sun rays to illuminate the desired composition in a desired manner... One cannot wait for the butterfly or bird to settle down and hit the shutter.. one cannot wait to set up a tripod and het that perfectly soft flow of the gushing streams for slow shutters.. and one cannot satiate the photographic hunger on-the-move.. unless ofcourse one is prepared to settle for the shorter and compromised version of clicks..!

It is this factor that has led iVenturez to arrange a special two month Phototrail in Sahyadris; a project on Shivaji Maharaj and forts of Sahyadri - A gist. The project will typically cover al the important forts that has played and portrayed an invaluable role in Swarajya. These include - Shivneri, Torna, Rajgad, Raigad, Torna, Sindhudurga, Vijaydurga, Pratapgad and so on.
