Default Weekend getaway in a forest

This weekend again ended up in Nallamalla forest, my friend Devidas and me .
It was about 5 in the evening when we entered the fringes, mass migrating cattle from neighbouring states also is encroaching upon fodder and water holes meant for wildlife in this reserve forest. Went interiors to check for Tiger or Panther pug marks at water holes, NONE.
What to shoot?
Highway, interior roads, sunset and one lone deer preplexed by our headlights, next day some panaromic landscapes.
This forest is located 3100 feet above sea level, with sudden drops in levels to above 1000 feet where we halted for the night at a forest bunglow at 1900+ feet.
Oxygen levels high, 3,558 square kilometers of pure air, reluctantly drove back to Hyderabad 150+ kilometers sunday evening.
The forest from the highway.

TG and Kannan,
Thankyou for your compliments and yes the much needed solitude is a great stress buster when you are in the lap of mother nature.
Regards,
