African Tulip Tree Blooming amidst the tea gardens of Valparai, Tamil Nadu.
Monsoons are one of the best times to visit Western ghats. The hills are green and clouds crown the landscape.ย  In the tea growing areas, the perfectly manicuredย  bushes present a pleasing sight.
The picture was taken on a three day ride ride to Valparai. I stopped to take the picture of a scurrying away porcupine and then ended up taking a 5 shot panorama of the above.

Nature’s Archway

Overgrown jungle forming a natural archway on a remote road in the jungles of Anachetty, Tamil Nadu
On one of my day rides I followed Google Maps to an unknown road off the village of Anachetty. The narrow road was hardly used and in couple of places the bridges had swept away.

The view above was at a point leading into one of such bridges, where the overgrown trees formed an archway makingย  a natural shady canopy
