Photo A Day: 5 PM

Day 6 of "March Photo A Day Challenge" : 5 PM

Oops! The topic said "5 PM", but I saw it only after 6 PM, when I got free from work! :-(

Can't turn time back now, can I?

And if it hadn't specifically been a *photography* challenge, I could have written a short story with the title "5 PM".

But since I can't do that either, I'm modifying today's topic to "5:XX PM", and posting some photographs I clicked on 19th January, 2012, from my balcony, between 5:40 to 5:50 PM.

I clicked more than just these 3 pictures... quite a few more... because it was really difficult getting a flying pigeon within the frame. (They were so fast!) But, these 3 are the only shots in which my fingers could match the speed of those birds!

I actually managed to get a whole flock of pigeons in that third picture. They're very distant though. So you'll need to click on the image to see a larger view.

Actually, pigeons inhabit this area (this whole town rather!) in such large numbers that I've captured many more pictures of them... just from my balcony so far. I will post them here as soon as I can.

This is my sixth post for NaBloPoMo March 2012.

Lovely picture...twilight and the setting sun with birds silhouetted against the horizon are generally some of my favourite photos.

Yes Shilpa, that's from my balcony here! :D There's practically nothing around for acres, except this one tall building right next to ours. And my room faces the west, so I get to see such beautiful sunsets every day!

Psych Babbler, they're my favorite too. I really love those fiery shades. Gives the impression of a beautiful painting!
