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?

  4. 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!

The Havelis of Bikaner - A Photo Post

The lanes are narrow , twisting and turning amidst buildings old and new. Crumbling old structures with intricate workmanship stand side by side with art deco buildings, and more modern constructions, which follow no particular style. Autos, bicycles, motorcycles and vans rush past, blowing their horns as loudly as possible, while cows saunter past peacefully, completely unaffected by the noise. In the midst of all this chaos, children play by the side, and women go about their chores, as we explore these by-lanes of Bikaner, and its beautiful Havelis. Facade of one of the Rampuria Havelis

Kabini Part 2 - A Boat Ride

The river Kabini is the heart of the Nagarhole National park, and a boat ride on the river is an integral part of the stay at the Kabini River Lodge. The incessant, unseasonal rainfall had marked our stay so far, and heading to the jetty for our boat ride on our second evening at the lodge, we kept our fingers crossed, hoping for clear skies.  The Jetty... at the Kabini River Lodge

Kabini Part 3 - After the Rains

Visiting Kabini in peak summer, we hadn’t bargained for the rains, which dominated our three days at the Lodge. While animal sightings were understandably lesser than usual, seeing the forest in the rain was an interesting experience in its own way. However, as we headed back into the forest for our second and third safaris, we hoped the rains would let up, and allow us to see more animals! Winding jungle paths
