[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The summit brings you such unique surprises reflecting the heavy volcanic activities which happened around 65 million years ago in Deccan region of India. More than 3/4th of Indian subcontinent was having heavy eruptions forming Deccan Traps.

These are few gas escape points on top of Duke's Nose at Lonavala. The solidified lava flowing down can be seen close to this summit at different places.

hello Subhash

beautiful photo of this Mountain summit with
great details of the rocks, excellent contrast
between background's and foreground's color tones,



What a wonderful geological shot!! I am most impressed by the height which you went and the gas escape vents. Did you know...volcanoes are happening yesterday and today? I keep close track of them as does Jane.

Hello Shubash,
Very interesting photo and note. Good composition and forground detail.

Hi Subhasjee,

Congratulation to do high climbing to get this gas escape points. This is a symbol of power of


Hallo Subhash
I am sure that when you reach the top of Duke's Nose you do not regret climbing up, once you look down over the beautiful landscapes that surround you. I can only but imagine how wide open the space and land must be from so high. I do agree with Bob that this is a wonderful geological shot. Thanks for sharing and for the information given. Best regards.
