A Trip to Nandi Hills

01 May

Yesterday I got a chance to visit nandi hills which is around 60 km from Bangalore,Karnataka.
Nandi hills is famous for its scenic beauty and excellent climate conditions. Many people visit Nandi Hills to experience the picturesque view of Sun Rise. Nandi Hills, at the height of 4851 feet above sea level is, very popular picnic spot .
It was Sunday morning when we set out for our Trip
We started our journey at 2:30 am in the morning so that we can reach Nandi hills around 5 am to see the sunrise. I was accompanied with my 7 other team mates from my workplace. We picked up everyone from their home.
Weather at the outright itself was very cool and windy. We were all packed up will some snacks and beers. The highway to the Nandi hill was really smooth and with low lighting conditions and really cool breeze, we were enjoying the moment a lot. Once our beers were opened ,i knew this would one of the best time we ever had. I felt high after having a beer and was in another world.
We were all talking about our life when we were together in the project and this was really a pleasant escape from our hectic office work during weekdays. I personally felt that nothing is more important than enjoying our lives.
We had a small pit stop before our destination, where we all clicked photographs. We were 8 people and we had 4 cameras and everyone was fighting to click a photograph from his/her camera.
We didn’t even realise how time was passing and how infact we were getting late for our destination.
We finally reached Nandi hills with all excitement and charged up to see the majestic view of the sun rising from the clouds.
It was all foggy in and around nandi hills. When we reached the hill top ,we were just a little late for the sun rise and it was already rising above and anyways the view was magnificient and we all enjoyed the scenic beauty and company of each other.
That beautiful red coloured sun coming out of the clouds really mesmerised us .
Everytime we see sunrise or sunset ,its always seems to be reddish in color, why?

    The red colour in the sky at sunset (and sunrise) is due to an effect called Rayleigh scattering. There is a similar form of scattering called Mie scattering which is responsible for the white colour of clouds.
