As per metrological data, August ( 2nd or 3rd week) is the time when south west mosoon break even happens here in the Indian sub-continent. That’s the best time to make some beautiful images of both landscapes and macros, if one makes a trip to the biodiversity hot spot – the western ghats. Moist deciduous and rain forests of southern western ghats will be teeming with life, Impatiens bloom would supplement the beautifully saturated greens of the forest during this break even time.

Western ghats comprises of a chain of hilly region in the southern part of Indian sub-continent spanning parallel to the western coast for close to 1500 KM.

Fortunately, my dear friendAshwini Kumar Bhat and myself were lucky enough to make a 3 day expedition to western ghats recently. Sahyadris in particular. It was one of the best experiences I have had in my photographic career. Will be sharing couple of blog posts and experiences on this recent expedition, both on Frames from wild as well as on Landscape Wizards soon, along with some images. Till then  I would leave you with this image for now.
