(Kollimala is beautiful green mountain near Namakal town of Tamil Nadu.
It has a historical importance. Before AD500 there was a kingdom and famous kings of ancient tamil history `Kari' and `Ori' had ruled there.
This hill is not suitable for tea. But it is a very good agricultural land. There are lots very beautiful locations but not much tourists visited here. We have to drive 70 hairpins to reach the top.
There is very beautiful water fall at the top near `Arapaleeswaran' Temple. But approach to the waterfall is horrible. We have to climb down 700 big steps.)

Wow i like this note, this is the place i would love to climb to. :-)
This is very unusual contrast between black trees, white cloud and blue sky, and i cant tell what is drawing my attention more. Was that sun hiding behind that white cloud?

It is really a wonderful post. I like the silhouette of the trees, I like the diagonal composition. Those trees clearly bisecting the photo diagonally is really looking good. The contrast between the clear blue sky and the trees are also nice to watch.

A beautiful composition!
I appreciate the strong diagonal,and the silhouetted trees work very well against the beautiful clouds...
Interesting lighting of the cloud formation, and you handle the exposure well!

The contrast is perfect in this pic.
Good details in the clouds, and great tree shadow.

Spectacular clouds lit up by the sunlight. Wonderful how the silhouette of the trees diagonally cut across the frame. Very good exposure control here
