Sunset walk by a quiet lake, with the breeze blowing in your hair, hills looming in the distance, and the sky filled with silver-lined clouds as far as you can see. A wonderful ambience, and an instant pick-me-up!
For themed Monochrome Madness: Road. Some painterly effect added in.
This lake just outside the Preah Khan temple at Cambodia. It was the middle of morning when we passed beside it, but then, I was playing with the colors in the picture later, and I absolutely loved it when I tinted the blue with yellow. This golden sky makes my heart soar with joy in a way that the original blue sky wasn’t able to, and I just don’t feel any shame or guilt for tampering with the colors so! 🙂
Temples in India, at least ones that have a courtyard around them, have trees in the courtyard. I clicked this tree at the huge courtyard of the Lepakshi temple. Of course, the picture doesn’t do justice to the size of the tree — it extends far beyond this frame, but the view of the tree through the pillared frame, in turn leading to glimpses of sky (and the temple) through the tree’s branches, was too good to resist a couple of clicks! 🙂
For SL week: Trees.
Summer’s supposed to start between March and April in India, but it’s already pretty hot here in Bangalore. There are short spells of pleasant weather at times, when one can dare to leave the comfort of air conditioning and venture outside during the day. Well, this just makes me wonder how we’ll manage by the time ‘real’ summer arrives….
I clicked this picture at Chitradurga on a super-pleasant day — just the kind Bangalore used to have, and the kind I’m missing right now.
