Getting the photos of Alcedo Athis from such distance is really fascinating where we are using just the zooming lens like Nikor 55-300mm. For this we have made a fine hiding by ourselves. Inside the hiding we spent long time, putting a perch in front of us, and keeping a hole on. So when we find this type of shot, our effort becomes shiny. It is not that our fate all the time smiles with results, but we know that after hard efforts the progress will be sweet…Hence is the photo.

Nirupam Roy is a school teacher by profession. His story of coming to the world of photography is quite fascinating. In one summer he planned a family trip to Orrisa, India. There he realized the necessity of a camera to capture the scenic beauty of the place surrounded by several sea-coasts. At the same time he wanted to photograph his family, especially his son Arkapravo, and bought his first camera Canon SX 40 HS. After returning home, he has fallen in love with photography passionately. Photography completely changes his whole attitude towards nature and human being. It gives him a sort of peace to his weary mind, as if a blessings from Almighty.
