Thusharagiri

‘Thusharagiri’ literally means ‘misty mountain’, a name given due to the snowy spray of water droplets of the waterfalls that surround the mountains like a misty blanket.
Thusharagiri Falls is a scenic waterfall located in Kozhikode district, in my native state of Kerala, India. This is among the well-known tourist places of Wayanad and can be visited throughout the year, monsoon season being the best time.
Surrounding the waterfalls are the evergreen forests of Western Ghats. The gurgling streams add to the pristine beauty of the place and the place is known as the ‘trekker’s paradise’.
Thusharagiri falls is formed by the cascading Chalippuzha river.

Athirappally

The name Athirappally immediately brings the vision of the mighty falls of Kerala to the mind.
It is formed by the Chalakudy River that originates in Anamalai ranges of Western Ghats. The beautiful river plunges here as Athirappally Falls. Nature is at its best here!
The waterfalls is a favourite destination and it continues to attract many tourists year-round.
The place is famous as cine location also.
These scenes were captured during the lean season of the falls. When Chalakudy River swells during the monsoon season, Athirappally falls is a sight to behold!!

Eventide- 15

A Moody Sundown

The day was cloudy and  had intermittent rains, when I visited the beach at Cherai in Kerala.

The sunset was not as bright as one would expect. It was a hide-n-seek, with the sun now behind the clouds, now out of the clouds!

Still, sunset is always a charming and never tiring phenomenon!!

Golden hour at Cherai

These sunset scenes were shot a few years back, when still getting the hang of photography and handling only a P & S Cam. Nevertheless I love these pictures of Golden hour!

Hope you will also love these scenes  🙂
