Default Through the mist

At one point in the stretch there was barely any visibility coz of the mist.
I thought im gonna miss capturing some green hills.
Somehow i convinced myself that this is yet another experience in the ghats.
And a wonderful experience it was.

Looks like you were sitting on the door all the time!
The swirling mists and the coiling train are just beautiful!

Good question really!! all i remember is i did zoom and held the cam upwards pointing towards the hill.
And as the hill in the view approached i zoomed out which can be seen in pic 31. Pic 30 i guess has comeout as a blend of zoom/curve/view + click
And just by the way there is only one track in that stretch..

Man that is some explanation. Almost like, taking my snap in heaven from earth!
Too good! First I did not even notice. Then when the question was asked, I realized this! Good find there.
