WPC: Orange

WPC: Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?

When we went to Chikmagalur, during our recent vacation, the plantation walk introduced us to the varieties of coffee beans and a lot of other plants which we haven’t seen. But we couldn’t actually taste any of them. But the guide let us have the Oranges from the tree there. It was so juicy and so tasty. Yum!

WPC: Angular

For this week’s photography challenge: Angular

When we were at the view point in Matheran I looked up those stairs and it looked as if there was no end to those.  Can this be the ‘Stairway to heaven’ ?

Stairway to heaven

I love playing around with Sun in my photographs. Here it was shining high and bright and when we were at the Sinhagad Fort, I angled it in such a way so that it would look like the light was coming from those towers.

Even though this old ruined tower looks like it might be the ‘Leaning Tower of Goa’, it actually isn’t. I was just playing around with the views and in one view, it looked a little tilted. Thought it was interesting so clicked it.

Hope I got the meaning of angular correctly.

Pune Trip – Sinhagad (Lion’s Fort)

The final place that we went to was Sinhagad. Originally it was planned that we will do the trekking from below to the Fort above (estimated at around 40 mins or so) and I was promised that it would be an easy one. But since we weren’t sure of the place we used the GPS and it took us directly to the entrance of the Fort. I was the only one who had a huge sigh of relief and thanked the GPS (I was not very sure of the trek what with my knee giving me problems). But to compensate that, the walk around the Fort was for almost 2.5 hours. It doesn’t look like it at first, but then when we kept going the path never seemed to end at all. It was a huge circle and it was on the top of a hill, so we could see the range of mountains and other hills for a very long stretch. Here are some photo’s from that place.
