At the end of March, I took a vacation to a place called Kodaikanal. I won't go into the details because it would take far too long to do so.

Let's just say this picture was taken sometime after a monkey jumped from a tree and bullied one of our group to surrender his cup o' noodles, but sometime before I saw an old man threaten to beat with his sandal two men who were just rescued after driving off of a cliff while riding together on a motorcycle.

So much more to this story. Let's just say I was happy to find this picture on my phone from the safety of my couch.

Shot on an iPhone, edited with Camera+, and additional tweaks in Photoshop.

Gorgeous! I love that view and the complimentary jaggedness of the mountains and barbed wire. A fav for me!

@gurry Sure did.....truthfully I have stayed in worse, but I have never been bullyed by a monkey or seen an old man threaten to beat someone for almost getting killed....on vacation no less. Nor have I been thrown to the wolves by my co-workers.

Looks like the barbed wire is a good metaphor for some harrowing moments. Beautiful photo.
