Not sure TE will like this picture or not, I was also hesitating a lot before posting this picture as this is quite abstract. But finally decided to post this as it's kind of goes with my story.
We are all set to go to "Dodabetta" the highest point in South India. Suddenly it started raining at around 6:30AM. We have no other choice sitting idle in hotel room; finally I took this picture around 7:00AM from the window of the hotel room.

Nice picture....very different. The shade of blue is nice and the water slapts in the front make it very interesting...

it is a very good capture. U have really a great eye.
The blue tone, the drops of water give the meaning of the pic.

it is quite a different feeling when one experiences rain in hills! i enjoy these experiences much until they get really boring with a neverending shower! :)
an exquisite peice of artwork, soft and beautiful color tone. consider putting a version in TrekLens.

Great image, I can definitely feel your frustration of being stuck indoors with a camera, I have taken plenty of images indoors while not being able to go out, however none as good as this :)

I like this artistic shot.Good idea.We can imagine the mystery tree behind window.
jasmis (57906) 2005-11-17 3:38
I like it. Smart idea to show the rain and well done work. Fine blue tones, excelent sharpnes. Superb.

I like it. I mean looking at it at first, it doesnt teach us much...but we can learn about the feel of the moment, the way the light and colors form. I like it for its abstraction. Ive posted a few in recent times:)

Abstract? — Why not, Arindam, especially when you need to tell us a story. Most of my pictures are worse than this one.
Your link is very helpful to me. I wish you could post a photo taken of Mettupalayam train station soon. By the way, could you please advise me how easy (or difficult) to travel by bus or train from Delhi to Agra? I am thinking of stopping by to visit the Taj Mahal if I could connect the flight from Bangkok to Lhasa. All advice for potential trip is well appreciated.

Hi Arindam, great shot also that one.

excellent light and colours.

hello, here we have snow:( and it is really cold:( I like your rainy photo, nice colours, nice point of view, well done
ishai (4097) 2005-11-21 3:43
Great closeup but clever too
The play with the DOF /sharpness and the unclear view of the tree in the back ,the colors and the tight crop
Make me like this one very much
Well seen here
Luan (12971) 2005-11-21 10:14
A smart abstract composition Arindam, nice close up, I like the texture and the cold atmospher. We can guess a tree without leaves outside.
prumod (8300) 2005-11-22 3:24
this is really wonderful and beautiful... i feel it like a metallic one...
amol (952) 2005-11-23 7:41
simply awesome... but more apt for TL...
KevRyan (22952) 2005-12-03 14:09
Hi Arindam - I have a picture in my files a little like this to post on TE for some time now - too wet to to go out - if it fits with a story I think it should be here - it's a very nice image!
best wishes Kev
