My South Indian Hills, Karnataka, India
Today I’m sharing a South Indian landscape photo from the state of Karnataka that is etched into the sights, sounds, smells and textures of my memory.
I was there in 2010 for 4 and a half months, and volunteering with UK charity Raleigh International for the majority of that time. I spent a month and a half in one beautiful remote spot, 70 kilometres south-west of Mysore, while we worked on an environmental project.
Camping on the outskirts of a tiny village without modern conveniences, I loved having this view of forested hills from the campsite, morning, noon and night, and wandering down to the backwater at their feet for a cooling swim. Sometimes shrouded in mist, sometimes hazy in the warm weather, I still refer to them as ‘my hills’ in my head. I miss you, hills of Huskurhadi!
Taken with my first DSLR as evening descended, with a tripod borrowed from a fellow volunteer, the impressive colours were almost as good as seeing them first hand. Almost, but not.
