Spaceship :)

The way the cloud crosses the sun really makes this look like a spaceship to me!!

Backdrop

Sunlight falling on leaves against the backdrop of the Laxapana waterfall

Addicted to Castlereagh...

Laxapana falls

Part of the never ending flight of steps that lead down to the waterfall from the main road. Counted the steps on the way back up and there seems to be a little more than 600 steps.

The 125m high Laxapana waterfall. The water falls into a perfect pool which is sheltered by rocks on all sides, so it's perfectly safe to have a dip. This photo was taken at a time when the falls had all but dried up.

The pool at the base of the falls.

Islands in the sun

Well, not exactly sunny, but that what came into mind when I saw it! Taken at the Castlereagh Reservoir located on the Hatton - Maskeliya road. I'll never get tired of going to this place. Lush green tea plantations with foot paths criss-crossing through them overlooking the reservoir dotted with little islands... What more could you ask for?? :)

Hide and seek

The Burj Al Arab


The 321m high Burj Al Arab located in Dubai, UAE. The hotel has been designed to resemble a sail of a boat.

This shot was taken from the Hunas Falls hotel a short while before sunset.
