KERALA - God's Own Country in India

NOTICE: These photos are not taken by me. These are highly Professional Photos taken by someone who knows the place and has taken pains to go around searching for the right moment, light and angles. I do not know who have taken these. These came to me by email the same way get so many emails like this. And these photos depict the Real Kerala as it is. I myself would have liked to capture all these moments myself and will probably do so too in near future. Because after seeing these photos I must go there soon is what I feel. And since I want the world to see Kerala's thrills and charms I though I will post them here in my blog. Hope the photographer will not mind and he or she will also come here and add his name here. I am only sharing what he has seen. I just could not resist the temptation!!!!! These are like WOW!!!!!
