Kerala_south_india

In this folder is a collection of pics from a state named Kerala (the land of coconut trees)located on the Southwest end of India.The state extends between the Latitude 10°00N and Longitude 76°25E, you can find the map here - http://www.kerala.com/keralamap/keralamap7.htm

here is the official tourist info map http://www.keralatourism.org/

LANDSCAPE- the western region or the western border is almost 600 Kms of coastal area with sunny beaches in summer,but the see gets rough during the Monsoon.the inland is mostly flatland with vast areas of greenery (forests ,rice fields ,coconut palms ,banana plantations) and lot of backwater lakes and rivers fish farms etc,the eastern region is a bit hilly, mainly forests.A major part of India´s Tea plantation area is located in central eastern region.

these are some pics taken by my wife and me in 2004 with auto compact Oly cam on Fuji and Kodak films.The colours are not this vibrant in real but it is nice and green ,specially during and after the long rainy season.


I must say ,most of the pics(except 4 or 5) in this gallery are taken by my wife.She is very good with her camera and she is my main encouragement as far as photography is concerned.What all you see in the other galleries of mine is a result of her big support.
