Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top (Ponmudi hills)

One of the most scenic and easily accessible hill stations of south Kerala is Ponmudi.

Once we reached “On Top” it was such a refreshing feel to the body and soul that we just stood there for minutes on end just listening to the sounds of wind and the jungle.

    1. Thank you so much, Randall 🙂

      Last couple of miles we had to wade through the mist, but once we reached the peak, all of a sudden mist got cleared and we could see the whole valley.
      That was one pretty refreshing sight 🙂

      This is one nice little hill station near Trivandrum.
      There is so much to explore Kerala which are not in tourism limelight, especially north Kerala 🙂

    1. You are doing something really great, and there is no better masters in this world than the nature itself 🙂

      There is something special about hiking I always felt and enjoyed.

      It’s a struggle within, between mind and body.

      Until you reach the summit, a mountain/hill reminds you, how small you are, in this world and once you reach, you are humbled by it’s might.

      Have a beautiful day, Noe 🙂

  2. the blue in the sky is my favorite part of what you shared with us here. it is like a soft or muted teal – like a silver that thinks its a blue – or white that has moved over into just traces of the cool colors and then came back and shared it – and the colors stand proud like the individual is –

    Okay – now that is getting cheesy = but I love your work and look forward to your posts – and this one was tasty my friend.

    I also like the energy in the plants – they are not vertical – but angled – and this keeps drawing the eye down – and actually – it works with your name in the upper left – and just adds something to the mood of the mist and the majestic feel of the hills – the plants almost seem to point outward – as if to say to us, “Look at the beauty to behold”

    well either way – ’twas beautiful to behold for moi!

      I really admire your observations here, Yvette, really 🙂

      It really gives a lot of inspiration to come up with better works…

      Have a great day ahead 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Michael. I am so happy that you liked this one 🙂

      It’s really an incredible feel to look down the valley and smaller peaks, once you reach on top, right 🙂
