It was quiet a few days since I visited my second home. Working in front of the screen had taken the best of me and I never really managed to venture out since the start of the month. I was really disappointing for the fact that it’s August and there is no sign of rain around. Anyways, i made my way up the hill, believing that I would eventually end up at the stream. It was a Sunday and I hate being in these area on a Sundays only because the place is too crowded and people tend to piss me off by littering around and making noise in a place I regard holy. With all these in mind, I made the climb. I eventually reached a spot where I could see the lone waterfall in the distance and at the same time, the sun too was setting behind the hills. I wasted no time and took a shot. It was fun to watch the virgin grass wave in the wind and the pure green color it was emitting. Back home as I was loading all the pictures, I saw this one and after developing it, I was happy. Though people were screwing up nature, nature still smiles back in its beauty. But how long will it do so is just a matter of time
Witnessing a sunset with a storm ahead at Anushaktinagar today evening. Though much of the day was dry, a late shower made this spectacular view. The light from the setting sun along with clouds made a diffused light setting giving the evening glow
The sun shines bright causing a glow on the green leaves at the Kharghar Hills. There has been no substantial rainfall in the region for quiet a few days now despite August being the peak time for monsoon
Rain clouds take over the mountains of the extend Parsik Hills region in Kharghar. The rain clouds tends to be caught up in the mountains and rain well there before reaching the valley
The step waterfall at Pandav Khada. This waterfall drops from a height and then flows down through another section of rock and finally makes it way down as a stream
The mountain mastiff at Sarasgad stands covered up with clouds during a rainy day at Pali
A monochrome landscape view of the twin waterfalls of Pandav Khada of Kharghar. It had been raining heavily yesterday, leading to an increase in the water levels at the falls. Though the access to the falls remain barred, it sure is a wonderful sight to view these beauties of nature from far.
The on and off rain at Kharghar was much like a way of play for nature. In the morning it was raining cats and dogs and by afternoon, I saw the sun rays and brightness first time in a month. And then the skies cleared up and covered up, yet again for a brief intense shower
A rain storm takes cover over the Kavela Dam reservoir. There has been ample rain fall this year making most reservoirs like these to over flow
Today I made a trip along Pali Hills and then to Rameshwar Vaibhav and back to Mumbai with this amazing group of riders from BARC. Though we struggled around with the route initially, we managed to have many adventures during the ride like riding in heavy rain, thick fog, on non existing roads, totally soaked from head to toe. Though I had been on many rides before and have shot plenty of them, most of them were pre charted and we always used to stick to the route and timing. But this trip was different. It was a real adventure, something that I would never forget 🙂
P.S – Behind us is the Sarasgad covered in dense fog. We rode around 3 kms from Pali Town just for the view!
