Treklens here a country side view from India .. place called: Munnar.. taken early at sunrise .. view is from my Hotel room. ( No I did not fall out the window):)

This fresh and nice view remeind me of the beautiful old English country sides we see in many photo's .. even puzzles..The Munnar country side is famous for its Tea.. and that is what the view-green is about.

In next posting in a few I will show you the Hotel from where this photo is initiated.

India has the second largest population in the world..
And one of them resides in the US..in Ilinois..and she is saying bye bye.

When you have a taste for exceptional people, you always end up meeting them everywhere.

Hi Vandana
This is just beautiful. A very well composed and brightly colored foreground, a misty middle and an open hazy background that allows the eye to focus on the front. Well thought out and materialized.

Hi Vandana,
Great landscape. This really reminds me of the tea plantations of central Sri Lanka. With the current gloomy and cold conditions in Toronto, this really looks so inviting!

A beautiful view, Vandana, and I like the different types of trees/shrubbery that is in sight here. Everything looks well-tended and watered.
I'm noticing a vertical "something" about 1/8 of the way over from the left--did you do some post-processing in that area, or is it just my monitor (or eyes)?
All the best from Maryland,

Hello Vandana

This 'Export' from India to US you mentioned has definitely not forgotten the links to India and this is proof of such admiration going on, in a finely captured landscape scene of foggy tea-zone.

The hilly terrain looks simply great to make it like a country-side village. The small figure at left walking quietly into the frame.

I like the shrubs lining up the pathway on each side and the short trees crawling up the hill ridge at far right.

Great work, Vandana, and thanks for sharing it.

p/s ...the 'Export' is marked 'Made in India' and proud of it, obviously I can observe here

Cheers, bill

Hello Vandan

Beautiful look of this place.
I like the fog to the bottom, it is mystic and Beautiful.
A very well composed and brightly colored foreground

Hello Vandana bhen,

Your composition of tea gardens is brilliant. The wet weather and the mist are enhancing the charm of vision and your composition has made the scene alive. Excellent shot, well done.

Thanks for sharing it with us.

Hi Vandana, it is indeed a very nice countryside. Nice ambiance.
You took it from a good vantage pov.

Well done! Yan :)

Hi Vandana,
I missed this wonderful photo during my last absence! WOW! What a capture! The omposition, the rendered of this foggy day and the atmosphere are beautifully done! What I like more is the fluidity of colors. Very nice! Bravo! Annie

A beautiful landscape Vandana! The lovely muted shades and colours are great and I think that you have captured the morning atmosphere perfectly.
Well done!

Hi Vandana
Superb image of this country side, hard to believe that India as the second largest population from this presentation. Love the morning mist and the line of trees on top of the mountain on the right. Well seen. TFS
