♥ I'm home again for a vacation, and the gorgeous weather made my dad and me decide to climb up the Golkonda fort to shoot some pictures yesterday. The "climb" isn't strenuous or anything, but it's a lot more fun during the monsoons, than the rest of the year, when the rocky hill gets really hot.
Since Hyderabad has received a few showers, the hillside is fresh and green and full of wild flowers, and the gardens in the fort complex are in full bloom - SO pretty. A blue sky would've been better for photos, but at least we didn't get roasted in the sun :)
Bougainvilleas are my latest obsession
I despise reptiles (most animals, actually) but this one was so pretty. The picture is grainy - I shot this at 200mm, but it was still far away, so I had to crop the image quite a bit.
Green and brown all around.
Ruins of ancient Golkonda in the foreground, and modern Hyderabad in the background.
This post probably belongs in my other blog Aadab Hyderabad - I need to learn a smart way of posting simultaneously on both blogs. Anyway, I'm glad I shot quite a few pictures yesterday - makes me feel less guilty about the fact that the ease of instagram had made me completely neglect my camera for a few weeks :)
