Volcanic cloud ?

That's how this cloud appears as seen from Kodachadri peak. In horizon Arabian see is seen.

A Walk in the clouds

Just before the sunset the clouds surrounded us all over the place and the sun was sandwiched between layers of cloud. Following is an HDR image of the Kodachadri sunset.

Man in nature - 2

I've processed the 2nd image in the previous post in B&W just to indicate a different mood. Actually it was completely misty & cloudy at around 4pm after the rains at Kodachadri peak. I was hoping that clouds would clear up before the sunset. While waiting for clouds to clear up I saw huge avalanche of clouds coming up (Yes, we were above the clouds). Right at this point it seemed as though it would engulf the couple who were sitting on the edge to watch the sunset. At this point I felt the size of man vs nature. I have tried to portray the same in this image. Let me know your thoughts.

Man in nature!

While at Kodachadri watching the sunrise unfold, I saw this man at the edge of a cliff looking at the sunrise. This image depicts size of man vs Nature.

This follows the same theme & taken during sunset.

Magical Western Ghats.

To see a winter Sunrise in Western Ghats is a bliss. If it happens at Kodachadri, there can't be any better Sunrise! When the run rays pierce through the early morning mist, the mountain range look just magical.


While trekking down from Kodachadri peak towards "Hidlumane" falls, I saw this lonely tree on the grass land. The early morning light and winter sky was just perfect to produce saturated colors.

Mesmerizing Kodachadri

Just returned from a wonderful trek to Kodachadri and Hidlumane Falls. The trek was fantastic to say the least. I've been to the same place many times and each time it has gone better and better!! Have loads of images to process. Will start with this landscape as seen from the top.
