|The Andamans and Nicobar islands have mix of tropical evergreen, tropical semi-evergreen and tropical monsoon moist monsoon rain forests. |
The dominant species is Dipterocarpus grandiflorus in hilly areas, while Dipterocarpus kerrii is dominant on some islands in the southern parts of the archipelago.
The monsoon forests of the Andamans are dominated by Pterocarpus dalbergioides and Terminalia spp.
However in this picture we see the unique gateway of ficus tree aerial roots with lichens on them, giant palm & a coconut tree (which was introduced from the mainland) on Ross Island, Port Blair, Andamans.

These islands must be a wonderful place. The ambiance in this picture is great with perfect compo.
In the WS I tried to get a bit more contrast and sharpness.
Ladakh and Andaman & Nicobar are two extremeties you seems to specialize in, Dr. Subhash.
These giant roots of a ficus tree are truly impressive in terms of their size and signs of age that cannot be measured in temoral terms.
A well presented image that conveys the ambience of a rain forest very well.
TFS and regards.
Tehy create a jungle all by themselves.
