Day 3 - Rishikesh

The weather looked gloomy with an overcast sky as we woke up. We had breakfast at the hotel and decided to visit Rishikesh today. Again we headed back the way we came yesterday and after crossing Rajaji National Park the road divides and one goes towards to Dehradun and one to Rishikesh. The drive was pleasant, as we opted Laxman  Jhula as our destination google map smartly took us via highway bypassing the main city.But at the end the roads started to get narrower lucky for us we found a parking lot packed yet as we early risers ;)

Cameras,Rolls,Photos and Albums

Most of my Web Site is dedicated to photography. In fact, the very thought of sharing pictures has changed with internet. I like to see pictures in-print myself. But when you have friends half way accross the globe, internet is your best friend.The pictures in these albums are taken by three different cameras. The first camera I had a Pentax. Now I have a Nikon N-80 and recently bought a Digital camera from Olympus. Infact, I liked all of them and I am very much impressed with their results.I used Yahoo!, Ofoto and Nikon club to share my pictures. But, the problem is they all are great in there own way. I spent a good deal of time myself to organize all the albums so that, I have same look for all the pictures.
