Skywatch Friday : The Western Ghats, from the skies

Here is Skywatch today, with a difference. Instead of posting images of the sky, here are some images from the sky! I clicked these from the plane, as our flight from Raipur hovered over the Western Ghats, approaching Mumbai....





I wonder, if it is just my imagination, or are the Western Ghats less green than expected? Or is it just the season?


And this is my fav image of the lot... I did process it a bit, to bring out the reflection of the sun in the river.... which is the highlight of the pic...


So, What do you think? Don't the Western Ghats look beautiful from the skies?

  3. Wow! The Western Ghats are quite rugged and austere, but very beautiful. The patches of green emphasize the terrain features quite dramatically. I love the pic of the sun on the river too... it looks like a dragon with a long tail!

    I am always entranced by the scenery when flying (as long as you can actually see anything besides clouds, that is!). Flying along or over the Rocky Mountain range in the U.S. is fascinating, as well as the patchwork patterns of fields in the mid-west of the country.

    Thanks for sharing the lovely pics!
