I could see lot of cattles browsing all over there... they were very happy and silent... nobody was there to distrurb them... plenty of green food, enough water, enough space...
(Western ghats are the row of mountains at the southwest of India. Its south end separates the states Kerala and Tmail Nadu. This south portion is almost continuous and have thick green beautiful forest.
The very famous Ootty, Kodiakanal, Thekkadi, Silent Valley, Parambikulam national park, Munnar, Chinnar, Kuttalam, Thirunelli, Valpara etc etc all are in these range.
There are only a few notches through which the roads connecting two southmost states. Palghat pass is the widest one and NH47 and railway goes through this. Almost all the other ways are through thicky hill forest and tourists can fulfill their minds with great pleasure. I like very much the travel through this mountaineous roads.
One beautiful and amazing route is `Chalakkudi' - `Pollachi'. Chalakkudi is in Kerala and Pollachi in Tamil Nadu. You can see big group of wild elephants while passing through here. The famous `Athirappalli' waterfall, `Vazhachal', Sholayar dam, Malakkappara Tea estates, Valpara, Aliyar Dam etc are sonses of this path.
A few weeks ago I had a travel through this road and I camped at `Valpara' for a day. I consider the Valpara as Munnar of TamilNadu. I know that Valpara is as beatiful as Munnar of Kerala. But the tourists are not coming much because of the lack of exposure and inconvenience in transportation.)

Wonderful colour (GREEN) and very nice composition. Also is nice the brightness of the water and the cows eating in the bank of the river.
Well seen and well captured.

The sharpness, saturation and detail in this is just great, Pramod. The composition is very good with the cattle providing scale. Pity the sky is blown out, but there's often not much we can do about that in thse latitudes. Cheers . . . David
