WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: REFLECTING

My entry for this Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting.

The pictures are from the Kundala Dam Lake area in Munnar, Kerala, India.  I found it to be a very beautiful spot that  instantly charmed this city dweller who got drawn to this serene, peaceful place and felt the perfect nature’s paradise. I wished we could stay longer and explore the area, do the boating, but we could not. The boating was closed and we could not enjoy the water more.  The extremely tall Nilgiri (Eucalyptus) trees all around, and the thick forest with different variety of trees some with colored leaves (we had visited Kerala in March month) reflecting in the water below, it was a very silent and soothing time for me, perfect escape from bustling madness and traffic chaos of the place where I live.

The Houseboat stay and ride through the backwaters in Alleppey in Kerala too was thoroughly enjoyed, calming and soothing with fantastic view all around, a must include.

I would highly recommend a tour of Kerala, rightfully called as Gods own Country, if you have not yet visited it.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CURVE

My entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Curve

For this Weekly Photo Challenge- Curve, I decided to select a couple pictures from our Kerala Tour. Kerala, with its beautiful and mesmerizing landscape, lush tea gardens, backwaters, rightly called as Gods own country is a state in India that one must definitely plan to visit if not already visited. We had a very good trip and thoroughly enjoyed the different places that we visited in the State.

Someone correctly said that-A smile is the most beautiful curve, yeah, the visit brought on the widest happy smile on the whole family’s face.

Some pictures depicting the theme Curve:
