View from a Room



W.H.Davies in one of his famous poems    “ Leisure”   writes :
“ What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare…………”
And rightly so  as we miss out on so many beautiful and  magnificent  things in life .
About  three months back , when I did   take out  some time to stand and stare , I   took   shots of   a  really beautiful  spot at Dehra In Kangra  District in Himachal Pradesh  from a hotel room , where I had to stay put for  three days in connection   with a marriage in  the family. The hotel is rightly named “River View “   as the river Beas flows  gently nearby  and  there is a  long bridge  over it  connecting the road  . A water body certainly  enhances the beauty of a place  like nothing else does. Here are a few  pictures
taken with a not very sophisticated mobile phone :
