Mud Tiles

I was amazed to see these tiles made of mud were arranged to form this beautiful painting like structure, which was hanging on the reception wall of a hotel in Kerala. Didn't wait much to capture it in my Camera with the due permission from the hotel folks!

Driving through Nagarhole National Park

While coming back from Coorg, we planned to drive through this beautiful and must see forest and national park adjoining the other national parks, Bandipur and Mudumalai, as my friends and colleagues insisted to visit this and indeed its a lovely experience watching the wildlife and nature beauty so closely and colourful. 

We have started our journey from Srimangala in the morning and dedicated the half day for these ~45 kms drive in the national park on the way back to Bangalore via Mysore, lush green paddy fields sorrounded by coconut and Areca palm trees with clear sky welcomed us in the morning and all along the way.Though the road was little bumpy in some stretches, it didn't deteriorate our mood and excitement  Enormous information about this place and wildlife at Wiki

This 45 kms drive consists of beautiful narrow road with lot of curves and hollows surrounded by all sorts of trees colourful grass, surprise appearance of some beautiful birds adding to the excitement. Rain god has also boosted us with some sudden showers which turned the forest even more beautiful. Since its a wildlife sanctuary, tourists are encouraged to maintain low speeds and no honking.

This forest is in rich with different wild animals, tigers, different types of deer, leopards, wild dogs and different species of birds, but all we could see was lot of peacocks, herds of deer, grazing, crossing the roads and few wild dogs. If you have the correct equipment, you could get some beautiful shots for your life.There's a safari which starts from 3pm  in the afternoon.

We took almost 4 hours to cover this stretch with lot of breaks enjoying the nature,wild life and of course for photography with different poses and angles :)
