This Landscape made me spellbound when I first saw it on an early morning in Wyanad, in Kerala. That day it was cold and misty. I got up at 6am and came out of my room in Kalpetta to see nothing but Mist! Then I decided to have a walk in the chill misty morning. Slowly the mist gave way for the beautiful Landscape, with tea estate to give Darshan for the lens man. It was mesmerizing; I could not hold back anymore and stared to take pictures in every angle. The sky was bit bleached –out and hence I used a graduated sepia filter just to give magical touch to the scene.

This hand held shot, using Nikon f-90X and 28-105mm lens.

A beautiful prototypical view of Nilgiri Hills in the mist. Lovely colours and contrasts.

Amazing image. It looks like a pastel drawing. Truly beautiful color gradiation.



Just breath taking!! You've chosen an excellent moment to make this photo. The view is excellent, the colors are just pure gold. The mist and light are adding an extra dimension.

Impressive landscape.

Hi Satish,
A lovely view, so peaceful. I like the contrast of the green grass and the orange light in the sky. Nice composition, great shot.

Slendid landscape Satish!

Beautifull composition, everything is well placed giving it a balanced composition. The use of the graduated filter created a beautiful warm sky and helped to keep good details in highlights as well as in shadows.

Great picture and TFS.

Nice lines, beautifully composed!


Superb shot of a pristine landscape, now tell me when can we go to Wynad :-).
Your mastery over using these filters is amazing.

Wonderful. I don't normally like the sepia filter, it is often over used, but here I think it works exceptionally well. what is appearing from the mist on the left hand side?

Wonderful Satish, well done!!!

Great shot at the right time. POV is just nice.

First secret of great photography, Get Up EARLY!

Excellent landscape, Satish.
It is a very beautiful photo, contrast and colours look very lovely for my taste.
Really pleasant and elegant, great work!
