This was cropped from a shot taken on a Nikon D3100 clubbed with Tamron 300mm Li Di Macro placed over Simpex VCT 880 RM tripod and photoshopped for postimage processing of RAW file to JPEG and monochromed for exploiting sharpness within the pic.

The sharp bright points are the mountains of moon & dark circular spots are the craters formed over the years from impact of asteroids in space.

My next object of interest would be Jupiter with four moons.

The original purpose of this blog was promoting city cycling and popularizing urban green belt corridors, which it did for it's first one and a half year, since the year of it's launch - 2014. Now-a-days, that is, since the last two years, I haven't been city commuting on my bike, thanks to my city earning the world's most air polluted region title. And thanks to the redesigning of City roads, those are forked under construction since last six months, loosing a green cover of a whooping 9,100+ trees and the rising construction dust hazards. And lastly thanks to El nino of 2015 and El nina of 2016. I don't know if I have missed any other reason. The theme of the blog, hence, changed, into a bit of my own ramblings covering topics, such as - my travel blogging, Social issues in India, Climate change & biodiversity conservation.
