When my wifey sees it, we will have one more reason to head back to the Nilgiris!!!
Thanks CL.
I am now checking the pictures and organising. I went click crazy and now, its a hard job to select and process. You know it better.

That's cool. My work is half done - the instigation part
Now there is no more worries for the next photo collection for you

Day 3, November 29th 2009 continued

Avalanche Lake


After stopping every few meters and doing a WOW on the unfolding beauty, we finally reached our cherished holiday location by 11:45AM. This is the only place we ever wanted to come back in Ooty so much after our 2006 discovery of this place. The fallen tree was still there. Kids were saying the place have not changed at all, and to me it looked more beautiful than ever.

My wife was happy to see the old tree still there.

She settles on that and enjoys the beauty around.

Kids have already jumped into the water and started playing around

And me - enjoying with my my newly acquired toy, the D90

She used my old Canon Powershot A80. The young one also clicked some using Nikon Coolpix L19. I'll put up their best shots towards the end of the log .

Thanks subash.

Keep watching.

Most of these were stumbled upon in 2006, and kept for a later date, which happened this year.

Emerald was a must do in this years itinery. Infact that was the motivation for this trip also. We also wanted to drive through the road we accidentally drove in 2006.

the Emerald Lake seems well disguised behind those woods - and also very true to its name.
