Coorg Photo Shoot!

Posted by Varun | Tuesday, May 5, 2009 | Category: , , , , |

I had been thinking of writing a post with only pictures in it for some time now. The picturesque Coorg gave me just the opportunity I was looking for.

Hail storm welcomed usFour MusketeersCrossed the free flowing Cauvery River
To watch wild Elephants in its natural Habitat
Couldn't help but wonder at Nature's amazing colorsand its picture perfect setting.We set out towards the source of river Cauvery. Through the country side, turns and bendsStopped over a lil to stare at a lovely man made wonderPosed for a few pictures
and finally reached Talacauvery (Structure in the background)
Rounded off the trip with a visit to Abbe fallsand a stopover at one of the Coffee Plantations

I had seen Coorg three times earlier had never captured it a camera. Now that I have successfully done it I wanted to showcase it. That is exactly what I am doing now :)
Hope you enjoyed the short trip!

  11. Ah, lovely... Why no pics of Golden Temple? Didn't go there???

    Coorg is like my 2nd home in Karnataka. Been 7-8 times.

    That four musketeer one.. it's Nisargadhama na?

  18. Bhargavi,Thanks for the lovely compliment. I love photography but have never thought about it as an alternate career. Some pictures have been clicked by my friends too.

  19. Vivek,That was the whole idea of the post ;)

  20. Smita,Thank you :) Man made wonder was clicked at a flower show.

  21. Swetha,It was definitely one hell of a trip. Another friend of mine has posed the same question. I'll update my blog with those details or will email you across the details asap.

  22. Vee,I have been there quite a lot of times myself too. We had only a day and a half to roam around. Skipped Golden temple. That is not Nisarga Dhama. It is Dubbare - Elephant Reserve. Lovely place to spend a day.

  33. I read your blog and found it very informative. The event blogs are striking enough to have a feel of the event, so, I would like to have a little chit-chat on your blogging interests. And even we are coming up with an event on startups on June 6th in Bangalore. So, can I have your contact details? Looking forward to hear from you.

  37. Could possibly be the Very best topic which I browsed through all holiday season?!

  38. I am not so brilliant to be enterprising to write out top stuff like you do but I am trying to pay it back so hoepfully this will cause you a broad grin or make you chuckle or at the very least give you a thought for the day? :

    I may be slow but I'm ahead of you!


  39. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
