Cloudy weather ~ Expecting clouds to pour down anytime ~ gathering dark clouds ~
Peeking sunbeams through the dark clouds, confusing if it would rain or clear off ~ drizzling ~ distant thunders ~ water sprinkles ~
sound of raindrops hitting the car bonnet ~ bubbles on the still water on the road ~ ripples on the calm waters ~
looking up towards the sky ~ street full of dark umbrellas ~ people rarely looking straight ~ bent heads ~ wet roads ~ filled pot holes, defying their depths ~
rich greens ~ moss on the rocks and logs ~ wonderful ferns ~ colorful mushrooms ~ splendid wild flowers ~ wet forest floor ~ stretching and crawling leeches ~ wet dead leaves ~
muddy red waters ~ full flowing rivers ~ re-incarnated waterfalls ~ silently flowing forest streams ~ skiddy and slippery river banks ~ submerged dead trees ~
cloudy forests ~ lively valleys ~ misty canopies ~ singing streams ~ bathing rocks ~ smiling plants ~
This is what Monsoon in the Western Ghats is all about.
Isn't it? :)
All images are from my recent trip to Western Ghats between 8th and 10th July 2011.
Planning again in Aug.
