The monsoon is supposed to be at its peak in June/July in Coorg. No such thing this year. An occasional drizzle which would threaten to grow into something worthier but would stop just short is all we got. Still, it’s all very beautiful.
We weren’t the only ones eager for rain…
…and we did get a drizzle soon. The dreamy soft-focus here is caused by a few stray droplets on the lens. These are pomegranate buds/flowers.
The paddy fields near our home-stay collected whatever little rain that did fall.
Everything looked fresh and squeaky clean.
The day ended with a glorious sunset.
We stopped by at the monastary at Kushalnagar on our way back.
Realized I had never looked straight up before. Was pleasantly surprised to see the chandelier use fluorescent lamps. The two shades flanking it continue to use the lamp’s original Edison edition.
p.s. The new camera still hasn’t seen much action. The photos here are from the old EOS 350D.
