The photographs illustrate the enormity of the rivers and lakes, distinctions of mountains, exotic wildlife and greeneries. Historical and cultural heritage sites such as Lalbag fort, Ahsan Monjil, Putia Raj Bari, Moynamoti and Paharpur have been portrayed in the photographs in such angels that make the locations irresistible to visit. The photographs speak of delightful expressions, diverse lifestyle and landscapes of the serene natural beauty of Bangladesh.

The photographs are output of a competition organised by Rong.
