The Big Secret | Photo Set - Life At Wasteland

Tuesday, July 06, 2010 15 Comments A+ a-

adjust your monitor brightness and contrast to see all gray scale levels for better view   Did anyone expected to see natural spring water ponds in this barren landscape?

   Even to my surprise it was hiding between these massive mountains and flows for few meters before it gets disappeared in to the
   ground. But it must be running underground by giving a lifeline to those who are struggling survive around the area. Well that’s
   something isn’t it?

   That bright white rock in the middle of the top right image …

   Can you see a small black dot on it? Well, that’s someone very special resting on it and it’s not something to miss especially
   in this wasteland. But to take a closer look of it I need to risk my equipment and get in to the water.

   Hmmm… Now the question is whether I took the risk or not? Anyone can guess? :D

Thanks lanka1-answers,
Welcome to my blog

@MD
Yes, those ponds are not too far away from the place I took my 1st pic of this series. But few meters away from the ponds you see nothing but the desert. I guess that you can imagine the heat you get in the place right?

I didn’t post the colour snaps because there were some writings on the rocks and it distracts the natural beauty of it. (no matter where you live you always find enough people who destroy the environment ha?) Anyway let me try to get the colour pics and add it in here for you.

Hehe am I? Yeah! I guess it kept this series alive for a while right? =D

Nice twist in the series...like the climax of a good story that comes at the least expected moment.

It would have been interesting if you could post this in colour...maybe low in saturation, but enough colour to highlight the different textures better.

Hi Patali,

Thanks for your feedback.

Yes, those rock graffiti was the reason that I converted it to B&W. But you like the coloured version. Cool!

Actually we walked across the other too pools but not the one with rock monster. It looks pretty deep :D

Hey thanks for the title. I’m going to use “Rock Monster” for my next post ;)

Wow an actual oasis in the desert! Mysteriously beautiful scenery. The colored version is even better but ya, it's really sad to see how much they've harmed such a scenic environment.
