North Kanara and Monsoon

Here are some of the panoramic shots from North Kanara during this monsoon. Specifically from the North Western Ghat ranges in Sirsi and Yellapur taluks. It is a home for many beautiful waterfalls.

The panoramic shots are very evocative of the Western Ghats.

Muregaar Falls photograph appears like an abstract painting. Did you have to take your time and wait for the right angle for light to get the contrast?

Yana limestone formations look like a glass sculpture.

It is great that you could visit the area at the peak of monsoon season and capture the beauty of the place.
