Last time I shared few macro shots with the same theme here. The absence of Image Stabilization is the biggest drawback in the lens used. Despite the absence of IS, it captures splendid pictures in broader light. This time, I had been to uncle's house situated atop the hills with ravishing Swarna river flowing down the valley and beautiful western ghats at the horizon. They have planted lotus in two pots. As per information gathered from uncle, in morning, the lotus was bud and later blossomed into beautiful flower. We were late to view the transformation. It would have been wonderful timelapse to capture the blossoming lotus. Rather than fretting further, I was happy to capture some good shots after the 'Florescence' of lotus. Here are shots captured during my visit to his house.

I thought of using a different theme for the post. But co-incidentally, while editing certain pictures shot during the occasion, I was hearing to one of the finest original of Andy Blueman which is Florescence. Filled with ecstatic melody of French horn, violin, orchestral vocal and splendid piano progression, Florescence undoubtedly captivates the uplifting fans instantly. I hear to Epic and Emotional mixes quite often and feel the blossoming flowers in our village garden. This is time to revisit the excellence of Slovenian master in blog post.

Hear if you admire uplifting music:

1) Florescence - Epic mix : This has the finest orchestral melody which blends french horn and orchestral vocal. Watch out how he draws the blooming flowers into beautiful melody from 3:29 to 4:04

2) Florescence - Emotional mix : This one is my favorite. The emotional journey outsets with breezing piano progression from 4:02 to 4:56 conjoining the fascinating melody of violin which culminates to a heavenly breakdown. Also don't miss the orchestral journey from 3:00 to 4:00 which includes melodic piano, violin and drums.

Myself in liaison with auto-driver Mr.Ganesh, embarked on a treasure hunt in middle of dense western ghats of Gokarna. Unfortunately, there were no signboards towards the treasure we were looking for. From Gokarna bypass, we started our hunt towards the treasure along the Sirsi highway. We enjoyed beautiful Gangavali river intermittently along with breath taking view of Tadadi from vantage, where Gangavali river flows along the hillocks of Gokarna before merging with Arabian sea. But still no clue on reaching our treasure point. We traveled all along the dense canopy of rainforest seeking help of locals to reach our destination. Some of them were clueless while some were guiding us along right direction. At times I was apprehensive as if things would go awry. "Yenadru aagli sarra... ivattu nodkonde hogova" [Whatever happens today sir, we will not go back without spotting it!], uttered the driver with tenacity in local accent. 12PM, it seemed as if the Sun already switched himself off despite the presence of azure sky. The region was roofed with thick & tall woods projecting all the way towards the sky precluding the dazzling solar beam! After relentless hunt, we eventually spotted the signboard 5kms before culmination. Few minutes later, here we are almost near to the beauty and began strolling along the mud road. Initially there was no trace of our subject of interest. As we walked uphill for almost 1.5kms, we heard the crescendo of gushing stream of water. Asudden, we saw the 'Delight' which is none other than 'Delight'ful 'Vibhuti Waterfalls' hemmed deep within the lofty mountains, dancing in cradle of mighty rainforest, tumbling with tremendous kinetic energy. The 'delight' proliferated after drinking pristine water from the storming aqua. I was also delighted to end the year in delightful fashion. Far from stifled city life, here we find the tranquility in its purest form. Long live western ghats!

Hear the 'Delight' from Matt Bukovski on this occasion filled with emotional atmosphere and splendid violin. The delightful melody starts from 2:54 supported by  emotional symphony from violin play. The melody from 3:46 is just heart-breaking with heavenly lead progression supported by the beautiful violin culminating in a emotional breakdown at 4:43 and melody prolongs. My heartfelt respect and kudos to the Polish musician. Hope it delights your soul too!

Matt Bukovski - Delight (Original Mix) --

Sara Pollino provided an excellent ambient transformation to the original trance version with extensive usage of orchestral instruments. The best part is from 1:56 to 2:56 wherein the piano, violin, wind chimes & cello, blend harmonically to create magnificent symphony. This is simply spine tingling stupendous work. While I was seated on one of the boulders enjoying the sprinkling droplets from gallons of water slapping the strewed limestone rocks, the chords of piano & violin resonated the aura of waterfall spot.
