The Waterfalls Freeze Bright Blue In The National Park Of The Kapela Mountains

When winter in Croatia's Plitvice Lakes drags the temperatures low enough, the rugged landscape transforms into scenes worthy of a fairytale. Captured here in vivid detail by Budapest-based photographer Tamas Toth, the 16 lakes and waterfalls lie in the National Park of the Kapela Mountains. They were formed over millions of years by what is known as the Karst process, the dissolution of soluble rocks including limestone, dolomite and gypsum. It's almost like stepping straight into Narnia. It is this that gives the water its electric blue colour, appearing all the more dramatic when frozen into chunky tendrils.

Where Verse Meets Dance: Mohiniyattam Danseuse Aiswarya Wariar's Talks About Her Dance Film Nilima

Every time Aiswarya Wariar choreographed something new for her stage performances, she was conscious of its transience. And each time she performed the expressions, the ambience, the response were all different. Now how does a dancer capture these transient moods, moments and immortalise them? It was this question that led Aiswarya to fuse the inherent strength of her dance, Mohiniyattam, and the immense possibilities of cinema to create what she says is ‘a first-of-its-kind dance film.’ Through V Madhavan Nair’s unpublished poem, Nilima, she attempts to tame those moments, those lines of movements, that would otherwise have gone either unnoticed or lost after a performance.
