Suryagarh Jaisalmer through my lens

Suryagarh is no doubt a beautifully designed hotel. Its intricate carvings, grand pillars and corridor, well planned lightings give great opportunity to experiment with photographs.

This post shares my clicks of Suryagarh Boutigue hotel in Jaisalmer who hosted me and other bloggers 2 weeks ago. I tried some photography in my free time.

The corner shots- with a wide angle lens, it is a delight to click the corridors of Suryagarh. Idea credit for below image goes to Mridula Dwivedi-she showed me a similar photo and suggested I can try from the corner. I picked it up from there and tried to improvise.

 Night Photographs of Suryagarh, Jaisalmer



Last time in 2014 few of these were under construction. This time I was able to click Suryagarh in its full glory. Enjoyed taking these photographs, though we were pretty tired after day long activities.
 Same spot, same time, two different camera settings...
 


If you are wondering what is this, it is the ceiling decoration at front lobby of Suryagarh

Hope you like the photos. I feel I could have done even better.

The first corridor picture is brilliant. And the first wine glass photo too. Funny that you had to break one for that. It must have been like a stay in a palace. But wasn't the weather too hot for this season ?

Shrinidhi Hande said...

@Nandini- thanks. Well, I didn't intentionally break. While trying to keep one glass inversely on another heavy wind resulted in one glass falling off and breaking into pieces.

Yes, stay was great. Rains are expected in desert in August. During our stay it was bit hot but manageable, as outdoor activities were not much.

Beautiful pictures. Next time you break a glass, try clicking reflections through broken glass pieces.
