Second image was good...when did you visit this place..!! Did you make it to Mukteshwar ?? I have travelled a lot in UT - just my opinion -I feel mountains are much beautiful in UT :)
Looking forward to hear what all you covered.

ps - you made it to Petra/Jordan !! So many destinations on my to do list :(
Till I reach there - please share the images.

Was himalaya on the otherside? Did you have pic that captured the mountain too from here?

You've been to Garhwal which is close by. Am sure you'll reach Kumaon soon. :)

Thanks. :)

Ah! summer temperatures in Southern India. I know what you mean.

Thanks. Petra and rest of Jordan.. hmm.. after I am done with India travels. If you share your email id, I'll try to mail a few pics. ;)

I was in Kumaon in February this year. Did not make it to Mukteshwar, or neighboring Ranikhet or Almora. I could cover only Nainital, Bhimtal, and rest of lakes nearby and a quick trip to the Corbett National Park.

Mountains in Uttarkhand are indeed awesome. I'll be going to Garhwal on a longer trip in August and hopefully will include the 'prayags' and VoF. :)

The Himalayan range, covering approx 2,400 kms has over 100 mountains. Bhimtal/Nainital are the foothills of Himalayas in the Kumaon region, to the north of which is Tibet. I have some pictures of misty Nainital. :)

I enlarged the images to appreciate better the dance of light on the water. In the smaller versions I was arrested by the complicated forms of the bare limbs.

Thank you for your interest in my simple pictures. The branches are bare as winter had just ended then.:)

The water is shimmering, how beautiful. And your Haiku explains it all so simply.
