We had eminent nature photographer Lalit Deshmukh curate the top six places in the city that are truly picture perfect and will pamper the photographer in you..

Pashan Lake: The place to find beautiful birds. The winters also see migratory birds like spoonbills, shoveler, ruddy shelducks, the bar-headed goose etc who travel from the north. The picturesque sunrise mist also creates magical mornings, especially when the temperature drops.

Khadkwasala Backwaters: Soak in the enchanting sunrise, sunsets and the tranquillity of backwaters with your camera. A piece of advice – access this area from Shivne Road rather than Sinhgad Road for a more peaceful journey.

Taljai Hills: Taljai Hills offers a golden chance of capturing the flowering of the “Flame of the Forest” (Palash). Topping it all, The Bombax [KATE SAWAR] trees and the feeding birds like parakeets, paradise flycatcher, sunbirds, bees, etc. will help enhance your compositions.

Pune University: This university’s beauty peaks in monsoons. You will not only enjoy your tryst with a variety of birds but will also see small vibrant insects and colourful butterflies in the later part of the season.

ARAI Hills: Visit the ARAI hill also known as the Vetal Tekdi for photographing the tales of peacocks and birds in the quarry. The flowering of exotic species during spring makes the ambience even better
