A few days ago I posted about my experience visiting the Four Seasons winery in a small village called Roti in Baramati, near Pune in the state of Maharashtra. I was indeed captivated by the charm of the place. The total absence of human beings, the solitariness, the weather, the small hills, the deers everything turned that place into an oasis of peace and tranquillity, something which is very hard to get by in modern India.

Gear used: Nikon D90, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Pro DX II, Nikon AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8G.

I had a gala time shooting to my heart’s content during the golden sunlight period at the crack of dawn. I would definitely want to go back there and gorge on some more photography.
