The perfect moment

The perfect moment

Prepared through self-effort, as observers we need to be able to spot and leverage positive situations being created around us. This is the principle for attaining positive growth in any aspect of life.

 

With this mindset, before dawn we positioned ourselves at a vantage point to capture the spectacle to be created by the morning sun over the ocean of Buddhist temples in Bagan’s (Myanmar) landscape. As hot air balloons started rising, for me it was a mere act of awaiting for the perfect moment when alignments would happen with the temple tops. These photos were created through simple virtue of patience.

    There is something hauntingly beautiful about the place, time, and play of sunlight; add to that, capturing of the giant balloons in silhouette as they align, pass directly above the pinnacles of the Temple building, and their impeccable placement in the setting; and you have amazing creations and compositions that evoke celebration of the beauty of the moment and the creativity of the artist. These photographs are not about patience, they are highlighting a prayer in progress. Congratulations and thank you for sharing!

    Virtue of patience leads to the world of Beauty. This pictorial feature by Amardeep proves it.
    It advises us to ” see ” the Universe not merely to take a glance of it. Artists like Amardeep teaches what should be the ‘ virtue’ of our mortal life.
    It is to feel and have regards for the Divine beauty around us.
    Regards to Amardeep Singh.
