A ‘ Rainbow’ Dawn

Kodaikanal is a hill station in Southern part of India . It is quite popular as a retreat and a tourist destination .

About 2000 meters ( 6500 feet ) above sea level , in Palani Hills , it attracts tourists through out the year.There are many view points from where you can enjoy the abundance of beauty of nature . Cocker’s walk is one of them. It is a walkway along the edge of hill , from where you can see far away towns and villages , if the view is clear. Watching sunrise from this place is an unforgettable experience.  One morning , from Cocker’s walk , I shot a series of pictures from the very beginning of sunrise  . This shot with warm colors of sun  on one side with cool colors of still persisting mist on the other was , perhaps , the one I liked most.

    • Watching the entire phenomenon of sunrise , was one of the most unforgettable experience.
      The play of colors of nature was a real visual treat.
      It is a beautiful world , no doubt !
      Hope it will always stay so.

      Thank you , Jackie ! 🙂 !


    • It was a series of photos – from initial total darkness to complete sunrise.
      In a single day , Most them have been good but I liked this one the most.

      Thank you , Ruchi .


  2. Good Morning Utham, once you sent me your email address and for the life of me I could not find it now. I just wanted to thank your for liking my blog posts. What a nice surprise when I got up this morning to see my blog doing so well. Thank You Utham. I am hoping to get out and about and take some more photographs here soon. Your are absolutely amazing! “A Rainbow Dawn” is so beautiful, you are such a fantastic photographer Utham! 🙂

    • Mitchell , Thank you so much for the mail. You have been extremely kind. For last few months I have been a bit busy @ work , so viewing and reading other blogs have taken a beating. Even posting pictures in my blog has become much less. I have a lot to catch up. I am sorry that I have been infrequent to your blog too. Whenever I have some time I will certainly visit and read . Keep going !
      Enjoy !

      • Utham, I will admit to growing kind of concerned for you, as you had not posted like you had been posting. Good to know you are alright and have just been busy. 🙂
        Thanks for your kind reply! 🙂
