I am a firm believer that Monsoon is the best time to visit Dooars. If one can overcome small hurdles like late running trains and waterlogged roads during monsoon to reach Dooars, then the greenery one will see I'm sure is something worth watching.As the train crossed the deep gorge of roaring Teesta after Sevok station, the grime and the sweat of the township cease to exist. Standing tall and proud on both sides are sal and segun, like guards of honour. Serpentine rail-tracks vanishing into the deep woods beckon. A cool breeze wafts towards us, bringing in the fragrance of the forest and the earth, the air is light and fresh and the mix is a mood-lifter. I must admit, that this rail route is one of the most picturesque rail journeys I've ever had.
This shot was taken somewhere near Mongpong area from the doorstep of the running train in a curve.

I love the lush green just after the brisk shower ...
Just a samll comment..since your main subject if the train, i wish a narrow crop (to give a panoramic look) would have been better for the composition.This is just what I think other wise I like the lush green ........

The scene is really impressing with the bending train and lush green. But to me it's looking a little over-saturated.I've tried a WS on it.Hope you like.

Nice snap of your favourite rail route(mine also)! on the earth. The bending looks good amidst the lush green nature. The dull sky did a bit damage, though!

yes this one is very good...you have captured the running train with the sprawling green fields and those houses..the sky has got a bit blown out but u cant help these kind of skies in the monsoons..the colours are just a little saturated but is looking good in this shot..!!...this is like the entry of humans in the wilderness...
great shot..and very good POV..but would suggest that u should take utmost care while taking these kind of shots..!!
