Cobweb in the Woods of Sikkim: My Photography

It’s been quite a long time since I have been to the hills of Sikkim. Have thought so many times of writing about our Namchi trip and have let it go every time, because so many things (about Namchi, Sikkim) are on my mind and I’m unable to sum it up! But then, today when I was reading this post How to Photograph a Spider’s Web on DPS it just kindled my memories.

We stayed in a cottage by the river Ringit. Ours was a beautiful small red-brick cottage that was surrounded by tall Sal (iron-wood) trees. And one fine morning I set out in the woods with my camera and captured this ‘Charlotte’s Web’ through my lenses.

This little arachnid seemed to be very smart to have woven its web high on the branch. And I only had Sony Cybershot DSC-W190 which doesn’t offer too much of optical zooming facility. 😦 Still I did as much as I could to capture this fine ‘work of art’ with my digi cam.

  1. very good pics considering you had only your little digi-cam… I second Boddhayan’s opinion, you need to get a DSLR… and you know someone else has the same opinion too! 🙂


  2. You have a good eye for subjects 🙂
    There are couple of suggestions from me–
    1) For all your write-ups, you should hyperlink the image (or any link) to open in a new window, it helps the reader to be glued in to your blog.
    2) You can try upgrading to DSLR, if you have a passion for photography! With macro lens, you can properly capture the essence of a subject better, which believe me, would give immense gratification.
    3) Optionally, try watermarking the photographs with your blog’s name (to generate more views 😛 )
