Had an excellent photo shoot at NDA…I was awed and awed..
The campus,layout,buildings,atmosphere…it was all magnificent..
Located among the picturesque Sahyadri hills,it feels only apt that the huge establishment stands in the foreground to the lovely Sinhagad fort-the hunting ground of Chhatrapati Shivaji..
Green colors all around,blue-n-grey skies,multi-shaped clouds,wet black tar roads,mind blowing structures,tanks,ships and anti aircraft missiles(used in the wars) on display,panoremic views from the Khadakwasla lake..perfect setting for any photography enthusiast..As it happened,there were two photographers in our group(i.e.if you’d be so kind as to call me a photographer :D)
..Below is the photo stream..Find complete album here.
