Dynamic landscapes of Lavasa - valley, mountains and river

I had absolutely fallen in love with the landscapes of Lavasa. The main reason being the various vantage points while getting to and moving around Lavasa. 

So the series continues with a few more shots of the valley and mountains. The flowing river and dramatic clouds add to the dynamism of the landscape, to which, I hope I've done some justice.

Now, let's try create a bit of drama through HDR.

And here's the original for reference.

Worth hearing your comments and feedback for the HDR effort.

The Picturesque Pawna Lake

Pawna Lake, alternatively spelt as Pawana, Pavana, Pavna is located on a slightly off-beat route from Lonavla towards Paud. The lake is because of the Pawna Dam, which acts as a reservoir and hydro plant.

Nestled between the mountains, the view is simply breathtaking and serene! The drive is wonderful during the monsoons and the roads are largely pretty good. 

Once you've enjoyed the tranquility out here, the Lohagarh fort isn't very far or like us, you could continue on your way to Pune/Lavasa.

Portraits of a little village boy - Age of Innocence

En route to Lavasa, we stopped by for bhutta (corn cob). At the shop accompanying his father, was a little village boy Bala. His innocence stood out and we took out a Minion, I think, from the car's dash and handed it over to him. 

He became the centre of attention amongst the others day and clearly his joy knew no bounds. That age of innocence where little things give immense happiness.

The Lonely Tree in Solitude

Day 2 of Project365 continues with a landscape shot from Lavasa. Anything standing out, always catches one's eye, and so did this lonely tree in solitude. Accompanying it for a change was a pleasant cloud cover. 

I also pondered what it would be to be staying in those little houses seen in the background on the foothills.
