Hello Folks!!
A few days back I had a chance to attend the photography tour “SHOOT AT SITE ” with Beyond-Pixels Creative Photography(Check them out here) at Hampi. I am here to share my surreal experience on the same 🙂
“Hampi”  is a UNESCO world heritage site and was the glory of Vijayanagara empire.
Hampi is in amidst of giant boulders and green paddy fields which make the view enthralling. Mesmerizing Hampi is situated on the banks of sacred river Tungabhadra.

It was an awe-inspiring experience to capture the old charm and the majestic ruins of Hampi. The green patches, the breathtaking sunrise and sunset added to the glory of the historic place!
SHOOT AT SITE with Beyond Pixels was a two-day photo tour at HAMPI to provide the essential foundation to the world of photography.
On Day 1, the team headed towards a beautiful hill amongst the giant boulders to capture the sunrise and the fascinating picturesque landscape of Hampi..

Later we took a ferry ride and headed towards Hemakuta Hills to seize the captivating dusk.. The sight was very soothing as the entire sky was filled up with dramatic colors!

On Day 2 We all had an early morning wake up call as we had to trek towards Anjaneya Hills to witness the sunrise. As we were on a photo tour we had an amazing experience in capturing some great moments throughout our hike and especially capturing the alluring sunrays piercing through the boulders…

Then it was time to hog some scrumptious south indian breakfast and of course nothing can be complete without a cup of coffee.

We then took a boat to explore the other side of the Mighty Hampi through our camera lens!
Well I have to mention that we did a daring hike over and through the rocky boulders and temples just to snap the abandoned landscapes and yes it was worth all the sweat 😛

  1. I was looking for a review of this trek by Beyond Pixels and stumbled upon this post. I have a question. I understood that you had a great experience. But did you enjoy the trip because of the place Hampi being awesome or is it because of the way the whole thing was organised? Did they teach the photography related things well? I am a novice in photography, would this be a good starting point to learn photography? Did the people who organised the trip teach valuable stuff? Where they friendly? In short, what is your review of the Beyond the pixels team?

    1. Hello Sharath 🙂 Well to sum it up all, the workshop with beyond pixels made me look at hampi in a new dimension. I have been to Hampi previously but never explored it through my lens or even think of doing so.. It was the team, the learnings, the enthusiasm and the knowledge which they shared in two days of the workshop, which made it such a great experience!Hope this helps 🙂

  2. You have described incredible Hampi still more beautiful through your art and experience over there. Really great pics captured by you… 🙂 It shows you had wonderful Photography tour to Hampi. Keep it up your hobby and explore other places as well and keep on posting. God bless you Jyothiji
