At the heart of the city of Hyderabad and in the middle of the lake stands a majestic monlithic statue of Buddha. A trip to the island of Buddha is an exhilerating ride by a speed boat, and can be followed up by a visit to the most beautiful Hindu temple called Birla Temple on a hill top adjoining the lake.
As a photographer, we’re always looking to find new inspiration and beautiful scenery that speaks to the soul. I was in India, Hyderabad judging in the Indian Photography Festival, during my visit here I was captured by the culture and the scenery and took the opportunity to explore and experience the local culture. Asli Hyderabad hosted me and I got to experience the best hospitality, food and culture the city has to offer. India has some of the best traditions and colourful cultures known to man.
