Avalanche lake is situated at bikeable distance from Ooty, in the Nilgiris. It is a popular campsite for students and tourists alike. This is shot from a resort facing the picturesque valley. Nice!
A short walk through the thicket and you can dive into the pristine, cool waters for a dip if you are the adventurous type. Away in the distance I spotted some locals fishing. There are trout in these waters.
A flower blooms on a pathway surrounding the area. No it was neither fallen, nor photoshopped!
A mountain crow takes a breather soaking in the atmosphere. It is very quiet around here. A day is good enough to view the picture perfect landscape. After that it may get a bit tiresome unless you are a bird or trekker exploring the surroundings.
Shot with a 50mm lens on Nikon D600, I wish I had my macro handy for these designer spiders! This had to be cropped close so I ended up losing some detail.
This tiny reptile opened its eye pretty much in sync with the shutter, was terrifying the way the white of its eyes opened up like a fan! I ran as fast as I could soon after the shot but he could’ve followed suit and beaten me on speed as well.
