This was taken at Lakkidi, India which boasts of the second highest degree of rainfall in the World. … so it’s pretty much always rain and gloom for them. In colour – this place has the most amazing shades of green I’ve ever seen – almost unbelievable!!

    A marvellous capture, reminds me of a place near Peebles Scotland. Love the rain. Don.

  • Thank you Don! You’d love it here then … this was taken at Lakkidi, India which boasts of the second highest degree of rainfall in the World. … :-)

    Amazing shot Vikram! The angle of capture and composition is pefect! The mist and rain add that air of mystery and the b & w tones are awesome!

  • Thanks so much Joanne. Was very tempted to leave this in colour – but B&W really echoed the atmosphere, so did the conversion.

    Love that touch of yellow line. Takes it out of the cliche. :)

  • LOL – you noticed! Was wondering if it was noticeable. Thank you!

    Gorgeous shot Vikram! The yellow line is a perfect touch. An instant fave for me!

  • Thank you so much Clare! Thanks for the fav too!
    LOL about the yellow line – wondered if it was right for the shot.

    Great B&W conversion, works really well!

  • Thanks so much my friend. I’d always thought of this as having too much dark and too much bright. Have grown to realise that it’s ok to have that.

    Dampness just oozes off the screen… love the yellow line in the middle. ( :

  • Thanks Micklyn. LOL! Oozed off me too after this shot – was pouring and I preffered to use the umbrella to cover the camera rather than me (obviously).

    Really beautiful shot, Vikram! And you’ve made me wondering what the colour version would look like… Must be a great sight too!

  • Thanks Peter!
    The colour shot lacked conveying the actual mood I felt at this place. So B&W it is!

    Oh my dear God this is amazing!!! Wow what atmosphere!!!

  • Thank you Caroline. Had driven here as the road drops about a 1000 ft over the next 2 km to the plains and one normally gets an awesome view of the smaller hills with mist on them from here.
    Rain and clouds blanketed everything – couldn’t see past a 100 ft.

    Fabulous shot, Vikram…great composition… the couple in the shot too….. So the question begs to be asked….if there are fabulous shades of green in this shot, why are we looking at it in B&W!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The mood!! The colour version didn’t have the right mood.
    And the previous shot I’d edited had more than enough greenery and lushness – “River Rocks”.
    Thanks Wendi! Lovely to receive comments from you as always!!
