Landscapes from Beautiful Bhutan

Photography is not defined by being a pro or an enthusiast, it is as simple as taking out a camera and capturing that moment-that moment you feel worth taking a click. I take it not as an art as it attaches a lot of weight and restrictions to it. So I call it a passion or simply a drive to capture fleeting moments. To me, Photography is not being hired to be an event photographer or having loads of likes on Facebook. It's the feeling that I feel when I swipe through what I have photographed-the sense of ownership and  satisfaction. So I keep clicking and piling though my hard drives cry of storage shortages and I have everything from everything that I cherish.

In this post, I share few of my favourite landscapes from #Bhutan. All the photos were taken since January 2016 with #canon70D and #tamron16-300mm.

Puna- tsangchhu and the rice bowls of Lobesa. 
Aerial view of a heavenly hamlet in Paro. This photo is very special as it was a nostalgic view of my Bhutan
 after 2 long years apart from it.
