‘In Ahmednagar, India, blackbucks frolic across the grasslands at sunset. "Ever since I saw blackbucks in this area I wanted to shoot them in the sunset. It took so many trips on the spot, some long waits, and finally after trying for more than a year, the luck was on my side and I could capture this image." - Your Shot photographer, @yuvis_jungletales

"Magical river...a heavenly paradise is how I describe the Umngot River in Meghalaya. The water is so clear that it feels as if the boats are not floating, but flying on bare stones. Villagers nearby are lucky enough to wake up each day with lovely and mesmerizing sunrises. For fishing, the locals use traditional hooks instead of nets.” - #Repost by @puneet travel.people

"I was trying to capture star trails for the past week but the sky wasn't so clear and the stars were not visible. i kept watching the sky every day even at 3 AM and finally, day before yesterday the sky was crystal clear! With small cloud formation, i was excited and ran to the paddy field close by. it was an amazing view, with the sky full of stars. And then the best thing happened. Even though with a naked eye, the Milky way was barely visible, after setting the camera I captured this amazing view in Wayanad. it had always been my dream to get a shot like this! I'm even more happy cause captured this in my first try❤️" - #Repost by @d_ capturer

"I had spent hours observing the lioness from far. But the she was too fast and went into the bushes, hiding. After a while she slowly approached me with silence. Fortunately, there was a canal in between so the lioness couldn't reach me. The lioness came out with a roar all of a sudden that gave me chills! Though somehow, I was ready for the shot and got this photograph" - #Repost by @arunkumarnalimela

“Well, dreams do come true.”, I told myself in that moment. And then I fell for the nature and its creations once again that morning, like it is the only thing I was living for. You know sometimes when the reality is way more captivating than what you expected it to be, you somehow start believing in a dream larger than life.” - #Repost by @musafir sahil

“Puducherry, centuries before its merger with India in 1954, was a Port City and flourished as a Centre of International Trade and Commerce. The commercial history of Puducherry, dates back to the Roman Empire. The remnants of the ancient port town "Arikamedu" four kilometers from Puducherry town, already prove that it had trade connections with Rome and Greece around the period 100 BC to 100 AD. Textiles, pearls and silk were the main items of exports. This is a shot of Pier at Old Port, Puducherry.” - #Repost by @subhashnayak7
