Hallo Sreya
What a wonderful scenery to look at, and how wonderful is technology that I am able to look at it miles and miles away, but see it so close to my eyes. These peaks are truly impressive, and the landscape is magnificent. The cloudy condition adds a special mood to these lovely green covered hills. It is lovely to look far away into the distance and still vaguely see the blue mountains on the horizon. Thanks for sharing this wide and open space, where I am sure one can breathe plenty of fresh air.
Kind regards

Hi Sreya,
Beautiful landscape.Well caught,framed and composed.POV,details and DOF are also wonderful.
Thanks for posting.

Good to see you here Sreya

Except for the small filesize of 86kb, I have no comment on the technical side of this post because the photo is very well done to show a fine composition of the beautiful landscape with sloping sides of the mountain.

I will not hesitate to trek up this summit of 625m with my dog, perhaps in 1.25hr and enjoy this view. Each sunday morning for the past 9 weeks, I have trekked Mount Singai 560m with my dog to appreciate a view similar to this but without the mountain ranges like this, and being tropical rainforest, with tall trees covering over my head.

I like what I see here and hope that you will bring more such landscape wonder :)

Great work.

tfs, bill

Ciao Sreya, fascinating mountain landscape, great POVr, fantastic cloudy sky, very well done, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009, ciao Silvio

Thanks for your kind words on my current image, Sreya.
I like your very thoughtful capture of a view at Lonavala. I have never been there but have heard about it.
The point of view is quite unique here and the greenery on the slopes makes it a beautiful landscape.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Sreya,

Nice composition with good deepthworking.
Beautiful colours, pov and sharpness.


Hi Sreya,
I like that place - it looks similar to the mountains here in Germany, the Alps.
So fresh green vegetation, very nice POV.
