A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed, and is, thereby, a true manifestation of what one feels about life in it's entirety. . . I believe in photography as one means of achieving an ultimate happiness and faith! - Ansel Adams

Idyllic Bhandardara

Bhandardara is a lazy vacationer's paradise. Its beauty is accentuated during the monsoons when the surroundings are verdant. Situated on the banks of Pravara River, its principal attraction is the Wilson Dam (one of the oldest and highest earthen dams in the country) and the lake formed as a result, called Arthur Lake.

One can just sit by and enjoy the breathtaking sights (how I wished to own a house here) -

or contemplate the meaning of life (probably indulge in some angling as well) -

or tour the lake and listen to the villagers' tales -

Bhandardara is located about 180 Kms from Mumbai and 40 Kms from Igatpuri. Its other attractions include Umbrella falls & Randha falls (India's 3rd highest fall) where many a Bollywood actresses have been picturised in white drapes, Agastya Rishi ashram and Ratangad (Shivaji's favourite fort).
