Photo Essay – Nature’s Canvas, Landscape of Kanha National Park

13 Jul

A trip to Kanha is like traveling to a nature lovers’ paradise with beautiful sights and sounds for your senses and your soul – every second of the drive opens up newer and beautiful vistas before you, gorgeous birds fly all around and their music is like peace for some part of your inner being and the animals of Kanha provide valuable lessons that we humans definitely need to learn.

But this post today is dedicated to the landscapes of  Kanha; that surely transports you into an alternate world where nature seems to have unleashed its creative juices and created a magnificent canvas with various elements from nature. And for my post today, I have decided to post a photo essay by combining the beauty of this landscape with some of my favourite quotes. Enjoy.

“There is always music amongst the trees in the Garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.”
― Minnie Aumonier
Drive through trees

Drive through endless green Sal trees

 “Life takes us by surprise and orders us to move toward the unknown even when we don’t want to and when we think we don’t need to.”
― Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

Driving through dust

Driving at dusk through dust in the forest

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventure that we can have if only we seek them our eyes open.

– Jawaharlal Nehru



By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and Third by experience, which is the bitterest.
– Confucius


reflections of the forest in a lake

“It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.”
― George Eliot, Middlemarch 


Grasslands in Kanha, yes forests can be without trees too

“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that qulaity of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit”
– R L Stevenson
Changing landscape

Changing landscape and views

“People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only of there is a light from within”
– Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Trees and Clouds

Sun shining through the trees and clouds

“In Nature nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in wierd ways, and they’re still beautiful”
– Alice Walker

Tall Strong Trees in a multitude of colors

“In Silence there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves.”
― Rumi

Silent Reflections in a lake

 “With each sunrise, we start anew”

– Anonymous

Trees, clouds, dusk

Trees, clouds, dusk

“Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray”
– Lord Bryon
Clouds at play

Clouds and colors at play

“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”
― Arthur Conan Doyle

    Is this Kanha in India? I am planning a trip there next year; hopefully to get a photo of a tiger. Your photos are wonderful. Why we keep destroying places like this is beyond me.

      Yes, this is from Kanha National Park in India. Kanha has a good density of tigers and you should be able to get a shot with them….But even otherwise there are loads of other beautiful birds and animals here… Thanks for the kind words and even I dont understand that and killing of these innocent animals either..

    Indeed Kanha is really beautiful. And more than that, people there are very much proud of their place. I had been there last year and had a wonderful experience. Amazing place that is. And very well maintained.
