An Evening With Clouds

Today evening, by the time I had finished my work, there was a cloud cover all around. Some amount of fog also was there. I had done all of my farming and gardening work for the day. There had been rains on and off throughout the day. Now there was just an overcast. The evening was going to be for photography.

Nature Walk at Natadol

Hot summer season and lazy sunny days… a perfect hint to take rest in the lap of nature, on the hills. On the last weekend, that’s what I did. With a couple of friends, we planned on staying at our cottages in Natadol (Maini’s Hill Cottages). The evening passed quickly in the company of friends, chatting, while sitting under the starlight. For the next morning, we planned on a nature walk along with our resident nature guide. It was hard to sleep at night in the expectation of early morning walk. When the first rays of light hit the snow-peaks, I was up and ready with my camera.

The rock is located just before the town of Bhimtal and on the side of the road. Some of the locals are scared of going near it. What is it that attracts tourists to this point and why is that bad?
