Ajmal Gadh is a heritage hill top in the Sahyadri mountain ranges nearby Vansda town of Navsari district. Ajmalgadh was used as cantonment by Shivaji and as a protection center by Parsees. Surrounded by lush green landscapes, Ajmal Gadh makes a pleasant destination from Navsari, Valsad or Surat.
For me, it's like a heritage home. Just 10 minutes from where I live, Umarkui. A visit to the top is almost always certain in every vacation.

I spent my good 5 years in SPHSV, from standard 5th to 10th. Now if I flash back, those were the most cherishing school years. With the right amount of determination and hard work, I excelled every year, topping the list of toppers. :)
Recently, I was walking past the gates of the school. It was a holiday and I thought of capturing the campus. I shot the scenes till my battery went off. Here they are...
Couple of years ago, I bought a Canon A2300 - Point & Shoot camera to leverage my interest in photography. I read a book, How To Take Great Photos by Peter Tellone and had compiled a summary of the book in Evernote as Photography Essentials.
If you too love capturing scenes then this will interest you for sure. Here's the Evernote note, as it is:
