Natural beauty of the week...










(please click on the photo for an enlarged image)

Aravalli Range in north-western India is one of the oldest mountain systems in the world. The present Aravalli Range is only a remnant of the gigantic system that existed in prehistoric times with several of its summits rising above the snow line and nourishing glaciers of stupendous magnitude which in turn fed many great rivers.

Photo was taken by this blogger last December from the magnificent Monsoon Palace, which was used as one of the palaces when filming the rather interesting James Bond film Octopussy.(more photos later or see archives February where I posted many photos)

Udaipur is one of the most beautiful lake cities in India and possibly the world - sadly the gorgeous lake Pichola is drying up rapidly.


Thought for the day:

'I am comforted by life's stability, by earth's unchangeableness. What has seemed new and frightening assumes its place in the unfolding of knowledge. It is good to know our universe. What is new is only new to us.' - Pearl S. Buck

Darling N, it is gorgeous! As you know, I love India and its multifaceted beauty. Cannot wait to return at some point in the near future.

xoxo
 
Darling V - thank you and I know that you will love Udaipur. Hope you visit again soon.
There is also a great small perfumery where they sell fabulous oils I mentioned to you.

So desolately beautiful. Add some snow and they remind me of my beloved Cascades, one of the two ranges that surround Seattle. xoxo

It is "desolately beautiful" - you have such a wonderful way with words. Must see some photos of Cascades - better still get to Seattle sometime!

C'est vraiment interssant de voir ca. Mais je suis plus interese sur votre phrase a la fin...

bon courage
 
Such a great photo, but the thumbnail pic doesn't do it justice, you really have to click on it to see the large photo in this case to see all the detail. Reminds me shape-wise in some ways of the outer edges of the Badlands in SD (color-wise they're completely different.)
 
Stunning photo, with an element of true beauty and peace about it.

Thanks for posting, N.
 
Everyone click on the thumbnail, enlarge it to its fullest. It is beautiful, N. An amazing example of the beauty found in nature. I myself love mountain ranges and thank you for this breathtaking example.

P.S. I love the new design of your blog, dear N! xoxo~~~
 
Thank you all for your kind comment dear Diane, Barbara, Katie and dr o2!

Thank you Katie and Diane - thanks for pointing out - you do need to click on the thumbnail - will write that on the pain post.

xoxo
 
Perhaps because of your marvelous quote at the end of your post, i immediately focused on the little settlements tucked in folds of the hills...wondering what it must be like to live there. Thank you for the *view*, as always.
 
I wish I had enough funds to travel the world, see everything and learn to speak every language. It's not impossible if I dream hard enough!
 
It is a good wish dear S and I hope it comes true!

:)
