I like the way you have captured the peak of the mountain against that cloudy sky. The lush green of the forest is also beautiful.
George,Thanks. Glad you like this image :)
Wonderful photograph Krigalpoththa! How did it get the name Adam's Peak. Surely not because of Adam's Apple. It seems like it should have a more beautiful name. Nallathanni route has a lovely sound.
The pic is beautiful, So well composed.
Carol,You can read a good description about the legend of Adam's Peak and how it got its name in this website - www.sripada.org. It is certainly related to the first man on earth, 'Adam'. As per the website, Portugese who came to Sri Lanka in 1505AD named this mountain as Adam's Peak. Indrani,Thanks a lot :)
The picture is kinda surreal knowing that those clouds are just about touching that peak. :D Beautiful shot, and the green montane forest adds a nice contrast to the blue sky. :)
Beautiful mountain peak, K.... Did you hike to the TOP?Betsy
how much intriguing this legend!!!great post!!
That mountain looks like a pyramid covered in trees. Fascinating!!
Chavie,Sri Pada Adaviya is one of my favourite forest. Full of mysteries. The clouds are actually touching the peak. When we were up there it was covered with mist. Betsy,I have climbed 4 times to this mountain. These pictures here were taken from the top :)Bicocacolors,Yes, it has a fascinating history.Frieda,Yep, it will be the tallest pyramid on earth. :DThanks all for your comments.
The mountain is going to touch the sky.
Rainfield,Yes, it was touching clouds when we were at the top :)Amila,බොහොම ස්තුතියි!
Great composition and a beautiful shot as always!අහ්! පලවෙනි පාරට සිංහලෙන් කමෙන්ට් දාලා තියේනවා දැක්කේ =D
Wonderful to see such dense forest spanning as far as eye can see !
beautiful picture, so lush with greens, would love to hike to the peak too.
Anjana,Thanks. මීට ඉස්සර සිංහලෙන් අදහස් දාල තිබුන හෑබෑයි කලාතුරකින් :) පෙබරවාරි මාසෙ කොහෙ හරි යමුද?Silent Moments,Yes, Sri Pada forest is one of the thickest forest in Sri Lanka.Betchai,I'm sure you will love the hike to the top!Thanks all for your comments.
මාත් මේ අහන්න කියලා හැදුවේ. හරි යමු! කෝල් එකක් දීලා කතා කරගමු.
Wow! What a gorgeous shot!!Must have been amazing to see in person...
Hi KP, as usual a brilliant capture. I recently went a hikes, climb(s) in Death Valley for a week. Helped me to think a lot and shed a lot of sadness I brought back from SL. When I see this mountain, the feeling I get is, Climb! and I will. The only other mountain to bring such feelings is Fujisan in Japan.
Anjana,නියමයි! මම කතා කරන්නම්..
Amaris,Yep, This is a must do trip who ever visit Sri Lanka :)Magerata,Thanks for your comments and we have a lot to climb to get to the top..
