Hogenekkal Photographs,the water falls in river kauveri.Pictures of basket boat river journey,the wild river currents,closeup view of the water falls.

You have to start from the previous post of hogenekkal if you landed right here..I don't have words to describe this place other than awesome and breathtaking..The lap of nature where she may give u a journey through her wild mysterious beauty..

If you are a tourist and ever plans to come to south India, don't miss this place..The place you seeing now is in the midst of summer, when the river is not in her fury...If you like rafting and diving into deep water, this place is ideal for you..

fast green river water current in kauveri river tamilnadu,photograph taken from basket boat journey in a tour trip"The Fast River Current"

The ride is bumpy and is very fun. The boatmen have to direct the boat through the current. Look at the green water, it is very cool- cool in all sense. All of us were really enjoying the boat journey..if you are afraid of rivers, you don't need reason to get a bit nervous when in one of those boats..But believe me its more like a caterpillar ride in an amusement park..The difference is just this is in the Natural way..

hogenekkal falls,waterfalls in kauveri river in tamilnadu,river falls from rocks"Hmmm we are going near the water falls..At this time we didn't knew the intension of the boat men.."

Don't expect the falls will be like this if you are there just after the monsoon.The rocks won't be seen as you are seeing now, ie if you are in a boat in this place at the time of monsoons, your boat will be floated above these rocks and your life won't be anymore in the hands of that boat men rather than God..

water falls in hogenekkal tamilnadu,india,photograph taken in a tour trip"OOPs now i got some signal... The people in the first boat are wet now. the boat men just showed up the boat under a small falls there."

If the river is in its fury you wont be going this much close as we went, for it will be THE END". Hey don't be afraid!! Your boatmen know all the whereabouts of the river.

close photograph of the hogenekkal water falls while journey in basket boat"HMMM its our turn now to get wet.We people were sitting with our arms in our head. But all went in vain..Finally we were all wet. And it was just the starting............."

Hey don't think the boatmen are mischievious to all types of people. They know we are youngsters and like some fun in the ride and we enjoyed it mostly..

I have to say this photo is a risky shot for we are under the falls now and were getting wet. The phone too got socked and got some water inside. Anyway the risk took by the photographer gave us this close look of the falls. You can see the main falls too in the picture.

...........Sorry guys the real adventure of the journey started from here...We were unable to capture the main moments for we don't have a water resistant camera. We people were splashing water to other boats and they were splashing on us. In no time all of us were totally wet and even the Basket boat got filled with water.

It was like a game and even the boatmen were splashing water each other. We even made a strategy to attack, when the water fight got furious. We were divided to two groups and one group started emptying the water in the boat and the others started attacking the neighboring boats by splashing water with our foot wears. It was great fun throughout.

Before coming to this place our tour guide insisted us not to take bath and not to wear good dress.All of us felt strange and inspite of the advice, we had our bath and were in good dress.We got the meaning of our guide 's words only when the journey turned to a water fight........And it was fun..really fun..Gifted us with one of those memorable events of college life..

The posts is not yet over..It has a continuing and previous gallery..Just click on there too to be complete..

Joining you with the continuation of this photo gallery in the next post...By pixelshots..

Test Snaps with a Panasonic Lumix Digi Cam; photos of Flowers,Cute little red fruits,Honey bee, iron fence & maruti suzuki hatch back car Wagnor.

This gallery has the photos snapped with Panasonic Lumix, the 6MP digital camera.Most of the photos are taken as a part of testing the camera performance. The camera proved to be a good performer in the overall rating. Photos are snapped holding the camera in my bare hands with the optical zoom for certain shots, and the image stabilization seemed to work satisfactorily.

The camera is of 6 mega pixels with an optical zoom of 3x. The device boast of Leica lens and hasn't disappointed me, for the performance was up to the mark. Overall the battery life also seemed to last for more than an average digital camera would get.

Even though, we cant handle a digital camera to take snaps as easy as we are doing with the cell phone cameras. If you are enough familiar with the settings of the device to make manual configuration for a shot, no wonder you will make breath taking photos. Its more sophisticated device and needs more attention, care and knowledge for better results.

Of course you can use the auto shooting mode to take pictures, but there are conditions where a manual setting would make great difference.

The camera was only for a few days with me, so i couldn't figure out the whole potential.

Bright Red Fruits in a Thorny Plant, Photographed from Kerala 

bright orange fruits closeup photograph taken with panasonic digital camera"What you noticed first???? The red cute fruits or the thorns behind them..........."

Am sure you noticed the red ones...Its common with all of us humans to always see the beautiful ones without noticing the dangers or thorns behind them..
The plant was seen beside a pond near to my house and catched the attraction of my curious eyes searching for something interesting..The result is before you..

The Spiky Iron Fence, 
 
iron fence closeup photo taken with digital camera of panasonic lumix"The silent, yet deadly guard in the fence"

Taken from the boundary walls of my house. The atmosphere was not so bright and i wanted to test the camera's focusing capability. You can see that the background of the subject is also similar to its color. Eventhough the camera has done a good job.

Bright Orange Dahlia Flower from Gardens of Kerala

One snap from the experiments done with the flower in my garden. She would have shouted at me for such a long and irritating photo shoot, if she had a mouth. Any way i managed to get some good photos for her memory. By the time of this posting the flower is disappeared in the unevitable state of life cycle, ie Death..For her loving memory let the photo be here..

I was fortunate enough to get the bee captured in the photo.Thanks to the shutter speed of the camera..The bee get frustrated seeing me with the camera, and dashed away from the scene in no time. The leaves are of Devadaru and tiny white flowers under them was the bee's target!

The Car photo snap- Red Maruthi-Suzuki Wagnor LXi
Maruthi Suzuki Waganor,car photograph showing a close snap of the automobile front grill"The Maruti Suzuki Waganor Lxi"

The only angle from which i liked the look of my car!!! My home car.Telling about it.. Nice and comfortable for a home ride.. Strictly not for a sporty rash ride, for the car has a side drift due to its body height if sharp curves are done above 40kmph. Above 110kmph there will be vibration in the steer. Any way depends on the road, if the lane is good enough you may drive over that!Here in Kerala its not easy to find one.
