Photo shows small village houses with nice gardens on slopes of Munnar hills.
Munnar - breathtakingly beautiful - a haven of peace and tranquility - the idyllic tourist destination in God's own country Kerala, India.
Situated at the confluence of three mountain streams - Muthirapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala, and perched about 1600 m above sea level in Idukki district, Munnar was the favored summer resort of the erstwhile British administration in south India.
This hill station is marked by vast expanses of tea plantations, colonial bungalows, rivulets, waterfalls and cool weather. It is also an ideal destination for trekking and mountain biking.
Pristine valleys and mountains- exotic species of flora and fauna in its wild sanctuaries and forests - aroma of spice scented cool air - yes!
Munnar has all these and more. It's the place you would love to visit - it's the place you would wish never to leave.

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the village which is standing on the hill surrounded by greenery, rivulets and plantation etc. Surely, it lools like breathtakingly beautiful and suitable place for refresh by cool temperature and rich nature as you note in here. It's also lovely for small houses. And, the mountain in the distance draws out an additional good atmosphere in this image.

A truly beautiful vlllage, so nicely situated among the mountains and totally embedded in lush green vegetation. This is a very attractive photo, well composed to include the more distant blueish mountain and a few dark clouds.

The wideness of the village is giving depth to the composition. The vegetation is framing well the village. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the houses. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

I like very much how your composition exalts the placement of the houses amid the luscious vegetation of the slope. The houses stand out thatnks to your apt lighting, colour and contrast management and it's delightful to see how they are tucked into the bosom of the hill while a hint of the wider landscape, provided at the upper right part, makes our impression of this place more thorough. Colours and textures offer a fine vibrancy and the overall impression is very delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Salut cher Miro
You did well to crop out most of the sky here as they light seems to have been quite challenging. The greenery on the other hand is beautiful and lush. I love the textures and slopes that dominate the image and it looks so peaceful and untouched, as you say in your note.
Thanks for sharing, bonne amities

The mist on the distant hills makes this look a very magical place, especially when presented with this beautiful lush vegetation of the forest areas. To know that people can live in a place so beautiful is amazing, and I can see why this would be a favored location to reside, its like a part of paradise. What a place!
All the best

Having just returned from a trip, I am happy to see that you've been sharing some gems with us. The houses nestled in the thick tea plants, and the in the distance the fog shrouding the mountaintop create effective focal points.

Exactly a ghost village splendid between the a lot trees.
Almost not to believe that there live people, but maybe very quiet.
You took these picture with a very well quality.
Composition and presentation are nice.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

A small village dip in the green forest. Fine clear photo, DOF well collected till far as the edge of the hill-top's and the mountain in the BG "frame" the view.
Amazingly, I see no cars around.

A scenic cool location & a truly picturesque mountain village very well blended into the natural mountain environment. Indeed a fine depiction, excellent fast shutter, crispy sharp, neat and well detailed with excellent misty backdrop. Contrast of white and green accentuate strength of the shot, great view and worthy a shot. Congrats
