As I said earlier, we have been increasingly visiting our ancestral home in the village. It was no different today, and we spent a long evening there. This was shot from our home; the soft evening light caressing the palm trees and spreading like a warm blanket over our fields was a pretty scene to watch. Sharing one such picture here.
Agumbe is a tiny village in Shimoga district, and part of the eco-sensitive zone of the Western Ghats, the lifeline of the coast. The region receives very heavy rainfall, and is also referred to as the Cherrapunji of the South. The region has lush beautiful rain forests, and is also home to a number of unique flora and fauna, indigenous to the zone. The enigmatic King Cobra also resides in the in the thick rainforests.
