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.

Being the 1st day of the month of the monsoon, the weather didn’t disappoint me at all. The intensity of the storm was quite superior given the fact that none of Haji Malang was to be seen anywhere. But what blew things out of proportion was the surreal lighting all around. It was neither diffused and nor strong. It was just out of this world!
P.S – In case anyone wondered, I didn’t go overboard to make the color look like these. Though basic tweaks were done to the image, the WB stands untouched (Temp. 4250 K , Tint +9). Nor was any funky filter applied (I suck big time in doing those anyways).
The light today was indeed this damn crazy.

The first of October saw some unexpected showers. The past few days were hot and seemed as if the monsoon was done. But today’s continuous rain proved that wrong. It rain so continuously that the Parsik Hill Range and the Hill at Anushaktinagar were not visible due to rain clouds
P.S – As seen on the Palm Beach Road at Seawoods

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 😀
