    These pictures were taken at Sunticoppa a small town near Kushalnagar, in Coorg, during last Christmas holidays, when my family and myself visited my cousin who stays there.


    a.  The first image is at a place called Chiklihole Dam site.       

    b.  Second image – same place different angle.       

    c.  SilverOak trees in a coffee estate.       

    d.  View on the way to Sunticoppa a small town near Coorg.       

    e.  A slice of coffee plantation and a guest.       

    f.  Paddy field after the harvest just before Sidhapur.       

    g.  Again silveroak tree just before sunset       

    h.  Bunch of roses in my cousin’s house, which has more than   40 flowers in one bunch.         

    i.  Bumper crop of coffee.  Coffee is the main cultivation here.


    Coorg is a very exotic location for holidays and each time we visit that place we feel like coming back again. One can feel the fresh air and serenity when you enter the coffee estates. The chirping of birds and mist adds to the beauty. It is quite refreshing and rejuvenating for anyone who prefers a perfect holiday. I love covering evening scenes as the sun gives a tranquilizing effect of colors each time.
