Story
Tagline
Programmer Analyst, photographer, Creator and owner of my photography site, 'Naikonpixels'​. I see myself as an artist, a teller of stories, a seeker of intellect, a writer for whom words are nascent but bubbling, a fitness freak, a Pink Floyd aficionado and a singer of songs in the confines of my restroom.
Introduction
They say life is best seen with eyes half closed. For me, life is best seen with eyes half closed on to a camera's viewfinder. Through the lens, I see myriad images, shapes and colors.The unusual. The off-the-cuff. The waylaid. And the meandering.

Have been shooting professionally for 4 years now. Yet, I've been a photographer all my life. My artistic instincts lean towards Mother Nature, the beauty of night and snapshots of travel to varied places.

I am Prashant. And this is my world, as seen through my Nikon. My work is available on NaikonPixels in case you wish to purchase an image.Either in print form or also as a licensed image.

I'm also on 500px, FaceBook, LinkedIn and Twitter. And if you wish to hear my voice, call me on +971 55 5789865.


Bragging rights
Hiked China's great wall, driven from Milan to Pisa to Rome, went cruising along the Mediterranean. Once upon a time, many years ago, I used to be a table-tennis champion.

Sunset serenade!

A six mile hike to the top of the Panther creek falls in Cohutta mountains, led me to this view. A view of Conasauga River Valley. Series of cold river crossings and rock scrambling along the trail but the view that is rewarded at the top of the mountain is magnificent. I slept there on a camp in the frosty night, and all I did was stare at the stars up there.

Well, the inception! I thought I'll maintain a facebook page as well for all my new works, from the archives and few randoms. Pages reach bigger audience and provides better ergonomics of shared posts than on the personal account. I don't really care but I think it will help to keep up with, what you call, enigma milestones?

180° Pano of Lake Burton - Moccasin Creek State Park, GA.
This is my favorite place in Georgia. When the winter winds subsides, I'm going to shoot milky way here. The stars here are said to be stunning.

Besides, did you know starting around January 20 you can see all the visible planets in the same sky. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. January is exciting, keep your gaze up towards the sky!

Amicalola in moonlight - Dawsonville, GA

It appears like the strands of moon rays were picked one by one and stitched on to the mountains in a place where it most held its magnificent beauty. Only that it’d slip through and flow like a stream reflecting the resplendent moon.

This is my 2015 masterpiece and I look forward to 2016 with the same excitement as that of a kid watching the moon.

Thanks for all your wishes. I feel blessed and overwhelmed by all the wishes I've had from different countries. I hope everyone is having a great Christmas and I wish all of you a great and fantastic year ahead.

Cheerios!

Roads Go Ever On - Stone mountain, Georgia

Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon. - J.R.R. Tolkien (Lord of the rings)
