A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed, and is, thereby, a true manifestation of what one feels about life in it's entirety. . . I believe in photography as one means of achieving an ultimate happiness and faith! - Ansel Adams

Panoramic Sahyadri

This picture was taken on our way from Bhandardara to Amruteshwar (an ancient Shiva temple in nearby Ratanwadi). The Sahyadris or the Western Ghats have a charm of their own owing to their distinct rugged identity (mountains appear in bizarre shapes and forms unlike in other parts of the country). These mountains are a trekker's delight because of their seeming invincibility.
This is what wikipedia has to say - the area (Sahyadris) is one of the world’s 10 "hottest biodiversity hotspots" and has over 5,000 species of flowering plants, 139 mammal species, 508 bird species and 179 amphibian species. At least 325 globally threatened species occur here!
Check this one out: what appears like a fort is in reality a rock formation atop the mountain.

and check this one out: straight out of Mackenna's Gold

I could just go on and on...
