Kandy is the second largest city in Sri Lanka with the population of 120,000 people.
The town was constructed in the middle of the 14th century, and in 1592 it became the last capital of the Shinhara dynasty. It prospered as a capital until Great Britain made it surrender in 1815. The town is 500m above sea level and enclosed by mountains. That limited the access and being a natural stronghold it prevented Portugal and the Netherlands from invading.
The mountains that enclose the town maintain a rich green landscape. They create delicate ups and downs with light and shade of green bringing in the atmosphere of one small world without a sense of isolation.

dai tuoi viaggi per il mondo riporti sempre belle fotografie.
Questa non fa eccezione e rende molto bene l'idea dell'intensità della vegetazione dello Sri Lanka nel quale si immergono le abitazioni.
Ottima nitidezza che permette di percepire tutti i particolari e bella composizione molto ben curata.
Ciao e buona domenica

Wonderful image! These photos look like they are easy to shoot, but I no they are not always that easy.
Graet colors and clarity,

Good evening Marina,
Beautiful how the red roof-tops houses dip within the green forest. This part of picture is fine. The upper part which I would like to suggest is rather too big on picture space, relative to the whole - so for future, you may consider this as to balance the allocated sky -space's over an image.
My humble oppinion, the rest of the picture is well made.

really delightful environment for a city.Lush greenery and here and there some buildings.I really enjoy this strong color contrast created by the few red roofs we can see.But also th esaturation of colors is superb and help to perceive the scene so intense.
Have a nice sunday

Beautiful landscape view from the hill, to the distant blue horizon. The houses, with their reddish roofs contrast with the lush vegetation. Beautiful colors and excellent sharpness.

Belle situation de la ville entre la végétation et les montagnes a horizon, un contraste des toits colorées avec le vert, bon POV, belle présentation et note

The lush green is so soothing. It contrasts with orange-colored roof houses beautifully. Also, the clouds above the hills look so refreshing.
