Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. It is easily spotted as it twinkles. Those who observe it closely would notice it seems to change colours as it twinkles. This illusion is a result of atmospheric refraction, and is more apparent when the light from Sirius has to travel through many layers.
These patterns were captured by the photographer to render the star as a beautiful abstract.

The Photographer / Artist
Mahesh Kondwilkar - India
Mahesh has dabbled with the factual and creative sides of photography for two decades. His interests span nature, wildlife, urban and abstract photography. His initial fascination with capturing slices of time gradually evolved into attempts of evoking abstract emotions through the medium. Mahesh believes that pictures need not always be visual representations of facts, they can also become a mirror into the viewer's mind. Taking a step back from minute detail can sometimes unveil hidden realities.
