Today's posting is like my mood... in this stormy winter weather....
also my another favorite subject fog/mist.

This is from Munnar...place called Top Station, the highest point on Munnar-Kodaikanal road almost on 7500 feet above sea level.

One need to hike for 5 kilometers atleast to reach actual point(s). My dad and myself went on this place. (Realized how much I ate at Holland trip..LOL)

I was surprised to see this weather, as it was almost 9:30 of the morning..so was not sure if this is a mist, fog or clouds. Anyway...a fun place to visit and enjoy mother nature.

This is the path leading in mist...where??? Don't know, Go and figure out.


Note: Freinds, the fog/mist is real, and not PP done. Once can see such foggy photos of this place on TreakEarth by Ochappan.
Living in the moment brings you a sense of reverence for all of life's blessings.

Hi Vandana
Lovely mysterious image of the man walking into the mist, going nowhere. Great composition with the boulder in the foreground and a strategic point of view.
Nicely done

Excellent Vandana. I would love to get up this high and capture the mist/low clouds. Well composed and the human presence adds so much. TFS,

Hello Vandana,

I like fog in the high of the mountain,
she gives a charm especially to the place.

Hi Vandana, I don't like fog when I have to go at work by car seeing nothing in front of me, but in your shot it is really beautiful and creates an athmosphere of mistery.
Well done, ciao, Cinzia

Bonjour Vandana
J'aime bien cette atmosphère de brume au très bon rendu.Belle restitution de l'ambiance.
Bonne journée.

The fog really hit the mood in this one. Well seen! TFS


Hi Vandana,
Mysterious and moody . . . and good detail in the foreground, and the mist makes us imagine what is at the top . . . excellent work!
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Vandana..;)
It's real mist or you do some PP?
Very well captured my friend..>
Well done..>


Spectacular shot Vandana!
Well captured is the mist and mood.
Great POV as well.
Regards, Vincent

Hi Vandana,

impressing view, shot full of mistery, it rembers me one I took on Etna
but this is more fascinating because of the alone man in my opinion.




Hi Vandana:
A very mysteriously beautiful capture:)
Looks like you had fun there...and still are!!!

Fog can make a photo quite moody indeed, Vandana. The PoV is excellent here, your father gives a nice sense of scale. I miss a bit of sunshine though - that would even enhance the misty mood as it usually creates a glow.
Anyway, we can't have it all, can we? TFS

Interesting shot, having the top part invisible due to the fog, and bottom all great and clear.

Title sounds like my one ;-) LOL, I guess it's a season for "mist" photos.

Well done.

Wonderful scene and composition, with that foggy atmosphere to make it extraordinary! Well done!

Hello Vandana,
This is pure beauty, where you make very well use of the foggy atmosphere!
Attractive composition with a fine feeling of depth, but to me it is the man really makes this one!
Pablo -

How did I miss this one??? I love it! Excellent mood here, but I love the bits of blue sky at the edges! Very nice!

Hi Vandana, the fog/mist here is amazing...it's like icing on the cake for this beautiful view. As usual, detail is great, as is composition. The included person shows perspective/size of the area well. Must have been awesome to have been there and snapped this. Great shooting!


Dear Vandana,

I am here in your wonderful space for the first time.. You have captured some magic, miraculous picture of mother nature. They are healing,pure,true to the viewer's heart and eye.

I also like the small yet meaningful quotes you keep in your notes. You have beautiful mind.
