I’ve been missing in action for around 15 months. Various changes in life. But one thing never changed: I kept travelling. And I will try to bring you all up to speed. Even if a bit randomly. But then that’s the fun of it all : )
Pure beauty in every way, thanks for the gorgeous time Sri Lanka. I’ll return for sure.
Hopefully, with a smile on my face and good fortune on my side.
This is a temple enroute to Galle (from Tangalle). The clouds were just amazing as I got off the cab to get this picture.
Right after this comes Taprobane Island. “What’s that?” you ask? Well Taprobane is ‘Sri Lanka’ in Greek. 30 kms short of Galle, is this small island, which has a solitary villa on it – which has been inhabited by celebrities for long and short periods. Below is the shot of the island. Excuse the blur, it was from my already delayed cab heading to the airport. Promise to send better pics when I stay there… soon! : P
The sun hid when the clouds rolled in. Rain caught us alone on the beach, but not unaware. The umbrellas defended us bravely, but to their discredit, barely. Being drenched had its own merits. One of which was being able to capture this frame! More soon!
More lovin’ from the outskirts of the Uda Walawe National Park. If I am not mistaken this is the reservoir spill over.
Still makes for a pretty pic ;)
“If you wanna shoot, shoot! And then better buy some greens!”
This was in a local Sunday market close to Tangalle (South Sri Lanka), with many local producers coming from around to sell their produce and wares. The simultaneous sounds of the hawkers trying to attract the customers and the smell of rain filled the tight little marketplace.
The cacophony didn’t seem to bother, as for me it was photographic goldmine (with the trusty 5D of course : ).
Around 80 kms away from Tangalle is one of the larger national parks in south Sri Lanka, called the Uda Walawe National Park.
Amidst the herding elephants, migrating birds, shifty reptiles and all other things wild, lie several patches of natural beauty. Or hang on, all of the above lie amidst the natural beauty ;)
Went there for the afternoon tour (yes, laziness persisted) but I would surely recommend the crack of dawn tour if it were there, because the light would be gorgeous.
