Photographer's Note

Omkareshwar
Location :
Central Indian State of Madhya Pradesh

Omkareshwar has a gorgeous idyllic setting. And what a glorious sight, with the Narmada splashing along her rocky course and the Kaveri tumbling forward in adolescent glee from either side. "They flow in their own individual vastness, and then merge into that mysterious Oneness".

Situated on the banks of the Narmada, Omkareshwar is one of the 12 revered shrines of Shiva. The river Narmada spits into two and forms an island Mandhata or Shivapuri in the center. The shape of the island resembles that of the visual representation of the Omkara sound, Om. There are two temples here, one to Omkareshwar and one to Amareshwar.

This photo was taken on the banks of River Narmada. Not many posts exist in TE showing the natural beauty of Omkareshwar.

This old photograph has withstood the 'humidity treatment' of Kolkata weather for 16 years. Dusted and scanned. Yes, there are drawbacks regarding the quality because of the weather beating it's taken & despite the PP work to the best of my abilities. But despite the above, I felt that I could share this 'old treasure' with you.

I had taken this photo with an old borrowed FUJICA STX-1N Film camera. Hope you’ll like it.

Workshop 1 : An afterthought, converted to B&W and sharpened.

Workshop 2 : Run the image once again through Neat Image to remove any further noise.
