Magical morning at Kundadri Betta [May. 31st, 2007|06:03 pm]

Magical morning

Magical morning: Kundadri Betta, near Agumbe, Karnataka.

We woke up at 5:30 in the morning and started towards Kundadri. About 8 kms from Agumbe towards Thirthahalli is the right turn towards the village of Kundadri; a further 5 kms is a deviation, the road going up and to the left goes to Kundadri Betta. We caught a glimpse of the clouds on the way up, but continued up, greedy for a better view; unfortunately the eastern sky is not visible from the top, we quickly came back down to a vantage and stayed there for a while enjoying the view.

Ah, a sea of clouds, as the Chinese say! I hope to see one whenever I climb a mountain and get up early the next morning for sunrise, but somehow I never seem to get lucky. I envy you these shots...

That means you've now seen them twice, which is unfair on an epic scale.

Gorgeous shots.

A walk through the coulds -- simply awesome.
Was seeing images of Kalavaarahalli Betta sent by my friend shot from above the "could level" -- this one is just even more beautiful :)
The feel of the images when you see it above the coulds are totally mesmerising.
Nice ones -- each one of them beats each other. But personally liked #8 and #3 more.

Thanks. Getting a cloudy view there is very rare I think. Here it seems to happen very frequently.

ahh yeah -- but if you get a chance try to go to this place called Kalavaarahalli Betta near chikkaballapur - it seems like you can get this view from that place from above the cloud level.

If you are lucky and are there at the right time, the pics in the mail were taken on Jan 14.

I can see, one of them is Cloud Nine, where you must have been in Agumbe! ;-)

Lovely views, thank you.

Amazing shots, you always bring greatness to simple shots. Simplicity is your medium of expression. I really admire your pics.
I lived all the school days in the heart of western ghats. I used to hate the rains (for info, the place where I lived, some 30km from Thirthahalli, surpassed Agumbe's rainfall for 2-3 years). I never understood the importance of the greenery during those days. The simple life you depicted in the pics were very much there. It was a small village, but we had Karnataka Power Corporation colony (KPC is the one which generates the power, not KPTCL, which most people misunderstand) and we had a Tennis court also in that small village. Now everything is just nostaligc, I would like to go back to this place sometime, it's been 9 years :(

Thanks Manoj.
>>Simplicity is your medium of expression
I am going to use that sometime :)
>>Now everything is just nostaligc
It does not have to be nostalgic when you have the choice to go and relive it differently now.

Hi,
I am sorry I was in a cafe and I was not logged in then and I did not notice that. Anyway, I just wanted to ask before using it as in India, most of the people just copy-paste stuff with no consideration for usage rights!

It's just a small introductory video on Agumbe and I am planning to put it up on YouTube, once completed. I just needed to use the shots of Kundadri as I could not cover that in my trip. It's fine if you say no, thanks anyway.
