Super cool... It almost looks like a smoking volcano. :D

I luv the upper cloud formations, in the distance - so lovely... looks totally surreal.

Sweet shot! Thank you, as always, for sharing with us. :)

I'm so jealous of the places you get to see! What a wonderland! Fascinating images!

Amaris,
This was early in the morning and I really liked the color shades of the mountains faraway. Clouds and mist really add spices to the scenery.
Glad you like the header. Did a bit of photo editing to match the hue of the mountains in picture from Sri Pada :)
Thanks!

Sigma,
Thanks mate!

Rianfield,
Although this is very ordinary height compared to Himalaya, still you feel the same feeling. Think that makes this place wonderful!
Thanks!

Chavie,
It was quite chilly that day and the breeze was freezing cold early in the morning. Thanks :)

Brilliant Kirigapoththa.
Only a few days ago I was watching a documentary About Sri Pada, on Korean TV, in US, with a Sinhalese speaking Korean lady narrating the trip. I think they took one of the harder climbs.
