The term ‘Future Nostalgic’ is an interesting concept coined by Sue of WORDS VISUAL blog.
According to her where we take a photo and know, we will enjoy looking sometime in the future and get that nostalgic feeling.
Can nostalgia include both past and future?
Personally, I feel any thoughts on
- Good moments of the past are nostalgia
- Anxious moments about the future are agony
- Bad moments of the past are a torture
- Nostalgia can’t afford to have bad memories
You may correct me.
And I like the idea of Future Nostalgia especially for the photographers as they go through their archive and cherish those happy times spent with family and friends.
My nostalgic moments
I do have nostalgic moments of my visit to Shree Badrinath Temple in 2009, located in the Himalayan range. (Elevation of 3100 meters or 10,170 feet)
This shrine is the most visited temple in our country. This temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu dating back to the Vedic Period.
It’s the toughest pilgrimage.
This town is approximately 108 km (67 miles) from Badrinath Shrine.
Here Alaknanda River Joins the Bhagirathi river which then becomes the Ganges river.
So this place is the starting point of the River Ganges, the most sacred body of water (in the world) for Hindus.
In the image below you can see both rivers joining together to form the Ganges.
At that time, I know nothing about photography, angle, camera settings etc.
Simply I was clicking with a point and shoot digital camera of those times.
So the images are of very poor resolution and clarity with a lot of noise.
Please bear with me.
Nilkantha Peak rises 3474 meters (11,398 feet) and is prominently seen from Badrinath Shrine.
This is the maximum Zoom I could achieve with the camera.
What a divine feeling as you watch the peak in silent meditation!!
It’s a hot water spring, in the vicinity of the shrine.
This thermal spring has 45°C. Pilgrims take a therapeutic bath before entering the temple.
This constant temperature of the spring is a wonder for all of us and irrespective of the temperature outside (which can reach below the Freezing point).
You can notice the hot steam coming from the spring.
A hot spring bath is said to work wonders for the body and has a healing effect.
On the way back we stayed in Monal Resort, Rudraprayag.
All good things must come to an end- whether you like it or not!!
Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.
Take care, my friend.
