On to Pali. by leananiemand

On to Pali.

I had a different route in mind, but when I saw a perfectly good highway, I decided to follow that in the direction of Mumbai. Although it was a toll road, bicycles were allowed, it was surprisingly quiet (that is quiet for India). I was determined to stay on the big roads although highways are never interesting. I did not need the stress of the day before. It was a typical, barren, desert landscape with equally barren mountains, just a few goats grazing and a few forlorn plastic bags blowing in the wind. I put my head down and pushed on to Pali where I arrived in the late afternoon.
great afternoon light and neat composition Leana...

This is so far removed from what I see when I look out of my window that it's difficult to imagine that both exist on the same planet... thank you for the wake-up call - Fav.

Wonderful capture.

A stunning picture. so hard to imagine roads with traffic and animals side by side.
November 24th, 2015  
Looks like a movie scene -- great splashes of color and I love the animals sharing the road.
November 24th, 2015  
Wonderful street scene!

November 24th, 2015  
Great shot. Do you take this on the run Leana?
November 24th, 2015  
The long shadows indicate this was taken late in the day. Fascinating to see the variety of traffic on the road! glad you arrived safely!
November 24th, 2015  
Wonderful, colorful street scene.
November 24th, 2015  
Just loving your photos and following your journey
November 25th, 2015  
Such magnificent lighting. The golden glow makes the ordinary street scene much more atmospheric. I like the red taillight glow on the pink clothing too.
November 25th, 2015  
I love the mix of people, motor vehicles and animals, super street shot!
November 25th, 2015  
The lighting and the colors are dynamic.
November 25th, 2015  
I suppose you have to dodge those cows too! Such a lovely cultural shot.
November 25th, 2015  
You hear the stories of how the cows are considered sacred and roam free but it's so different to see it in your photos as REAL!
November 25th, 2015  
I love everything about this, fav for me. People in India have such a wonderful sense of colour, I've noticed. Both the light and colour here are fantastic, and I like seeing the cow.
November 25th, 2015  
Fascinating view... lovely light and touches of life in the shot, especially (for some reason) how the cows are integrated into the daily life of the citizens.
November 25th, 2015  
Such an interesting scene.
November 25th, 2015  
Thank you for sharing the shots of every day life ... it is fascinating to see such a different way of life.
November 25th, 2015  
Instant fav!

Super shot and love the lighting. Sounds like you had a much more pleasant day today.

This image has so many layers. It's wonderful and interesting and the light is amazing!
November 25th, 2015  
Wow! This is amazing!
November 25th, 2015  
Fabulous! Scarves, scooters and cows...and the women riding "Side saddle" on the back of the bikes. That part amazed me when I saw it in Burma. Here, the second rider would fly off the back because of the high speeds. There, they aren't traveling so fast.
November 25th, 2015  
Such an interesting street scene!
November 26th, 2015  
What an amazing scene...and the lighting is wonderful. Looks as though the bull on the left is just waiting for the traffic to clear so he cross. Just wonderful!
November 26th, 2015  
Complete with cows!
