Forest cover

Tall beautiful pine trees at the pine forest in Kodaikanal (Tamil nadu, India).  It is refreshing to take a walk through this forest, as monkeys chatter from the tree branches and cold mist floats by.

Bark of these trees is unique. It feels hard and rugged from the outside, but the inside is smooth and coloured in orange – red hues.

It is a good spot to stop by while visiting kodaikonal.

Mango feast

I captured this photo 3 months back, during summer in India. Summers are harvest time for mangos. While many people love ripe mangos, my favourite are unripe mangos with a sprinkling of dried chilly powder and salt. I love the way mangos are cut and sold by the street hawkers.
