A gloomy day in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands transforms the sea and sky from their typical vibrant blue colour to a dreary grey.

Beaches, such as this one in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands of India, are probably the best places to experience a sunrise or sunset, with the horizon completely free of obstructions and the sun’s rays reflecting off the ocean.

Driving between Vienna and Salzburg, one gets to observe a change in the Austrian landscape from open, relatively flat plains to the rolling hills of the Austrian Alps. One of the most popular stopping-points along this route is the picturesque village of Hallstatt, somewhere around which this photograph was taken. And with landscapes like this one surrounding the village, it’s not difficult to see why it is such a popular tourist destination!

The hills in the eastern part of the Indian state of Kerala are home to several nature reserves and wildlife sanctuaries. When we visited one of these reserves during the summer, we were caught off guard by the dense fog and relatively low temperatures.

Dry River Bed

Jim Corbett National Park in the Himalayan foothills is one of the most well-known nature reserves in India. It is an excellent location to observe tigers and other wildlife in their natural habitat, and as a result thousands of tourists visit each year.

Rivers and lakes are often the best places to encounter wildlife in any nature reserve, as animals tend to gravitate around sources of water. In Corbett, the dry season brings with it a stark transmogrification: the river bed becomes completely dry, and lush greenery fades to parched shrubbery. Thus spotting animals during this period becomes much more difficult.
