Rajiv Kumar calls himself a restless soul, who believe in going beyond comfort zones.
While traveling through the Himalayas in different seasons of the year, Rajiv always noticed how the places and its vegetation change so drastically between summer and winter.
Summer is quite cheerful, green and buzzing, while winter is all white, silent and secretive. “Personally I always liked the winter in Himalayas much more than summer.” Rajiv tells Light Art Academy.
“But that’s not the case with all, hence I decided to do a comparison of the views from the same spot for summer and winter. And that would give a fair idea of the views change between these two seasons.”, says Rajiv
Rajiv tells, “it’s not always easy to identify the same spot, and for that I carry all the pics in my tablet and try to match up the composition. Few friends suggested to use GPS, but more than the geo-location, it’s important to have a same or near to same composition.”
Let’s have a look at his work

As next assignment, Rajiv has already started doing the same comparison in the form of 3D videos.
