Deccan Traps, India
Very interesting photo. Thanks for the note—otherwise I wouldn't have known what I was looking at.
I did a variation of your photo as a workshop—hope you like it.

A fascinating shot and excellent notes. I was wondering about the name Deccan Traps but you explained it well. Another excellent picture of something very few of us will ever see for ourselves.

This image, no doubt, illustrates very effectively the nature of these geological formations that took place millions of years ago, Dr Subhash.
Thanks for appending an erudite note with the picture. It really helps in understanding how the Deccan Traps have undergone stages of transformation since they were formed.
Thanks and regards.

Nice to see some more landscapes on TN i.o. all the birds and insects. You've got yourself a very interesting photo of a very interesting rock formation. It looks similar to what you can find in the Rockies, but then again vulcanic eruptions are the same all over the world.

An amazing 'trappa'-like rock formation of the Deccan Traps nicely captured to show the formationa as well as the sand-like result of erosion.
The POV and composition are excellent as well as your great informative note.
Thanks and best regards,

Dear Dr. Subhash Ranjan,
I lived in India as you know but I was totally unaware of this MARVEL.
Thanks for NOT ONLY sharing this image but for "EDUCATING" us, mankind.
Friendly greetings from,
