Photo of the Week – Ella, Sri Lanka

tall trees

Hiking through the forest to Ella Rock made me feel pretty small

Happy Earth Day!  What better way to ring it in than with lots of oxygen!

The hike to Ella Rock in Sri Lanka takes you on railroad tracks, over waterfalls, and through tea fields.  But before you get to the top, you must make one last steep climb through a tall forest of trees.  I stopped to catch my breath and looked above me and witnessed this breath-taking site.  I quickly put on my wide angle lens (the love of my life!) and started shooting the sun poking through the trees.  It was a great diversion from what was ahead of us.  Eventually we popped out of the forest and to the top of Ella Rock where we were treated with magnificent views of the lush, green valley below.
