A Storm rolls in… – II

A storm rolls in over the lush green plateau and the numerous peaks before descending into the valley.

The hill range acts like a boundary wall holding up a good amount of rain bearing clouds as they pass by from the west. When there is a heavy downpour, these clouds send down huge quantities of water, often resulting in swelled up streams and waterfalls across the town.

Though as beautiful as it seems, it would be rather terrifying to get held up on these highlands when a storm like this passes by.

A Monsoon Trip to the Hills- I

A panoramic view of the Kharghar Hills Tabletop and the Valley below, as viewed from higher ground one fine rain free afternoon.

It rained plenty this year, replenishing most of the land. The foliage had turned into a vibrant shade of green. The clear skies and the intense sunlight aided in bringing out the best of the landscape. It really is a treat to watch the magic of the monsoon during a cheat day like this!

Shades of Green

A bunch of vibrant leaves on of one of the bushes that line the banks of the Seawoods holding ponds during a rather sunny morning.
Though the rains have been erratic in nature, the foliage in and around the area has turned from the dusty and sober shades that they put on throughout the winter and summer to surreal shades of vibrant green, the best indicator to the fact that nature has already got and stored it’s share of water 🙂

 

Watch Out, Watch Out!

This bud was sitting a few feet away for 2 straight hours (or even more), first cautiously looking out and then a bit more relaxed after getting accustomed to me, as I took a few snaps at the viewpoint from Parsik Hills a few days ago.

I do miss that light and heat from the day now. Hope these guys are safe and doing just fine.

Colors of Rain

The vibrant monsoon landscape of the Maharashtra State Highway 93, that passes close to Pali looks just like a beautiful painting of the typical ‘Konkan Monsoon’!

It’s been around an year since my group from the colony and I made that crazy but amazing trip to Rameshwar Vaibhav. The rain, the day, the nature and everything around us was so surreal that it was difficult for us to believe that any of this was real at all. Thankfully, we had documented proof to make us realize and then believe that it indeed real and not a dream!

Though it’s been a while I had last been to this place and beyond, I do know that it would be just as beautiful as I had left it the last time. Perhaps, even more

26th August 2016 – Day 239 of 366

Rain-Kharghar Hills Panaroma

Nature plays in strange ways. Yesterday it was so bright and sunny that I believed it wouldn’t rain anymore this year. And today, i woke up to a bed of dark and intense clouds in the sky followed by rain throughout the day. I saw these same hills glitter in green due to the sunlight a day before and today I see a mist covered peak. Truly fascinated! Nature at it’s best and so loving it 😀
