Mystique waterfall guarded by the Spartan soldier.

Photo and caption by Gopakumar R

With the aim of getting a beautiful picture of nature in all its glory, I wandered through the Western Ghats of India when this small waterfall amongst the rocky hills caught my attention. What fascinated me is the Spartan soldier with chest puffed out, sculptured by the Mother Nature as to guard this beautiful masterpiece. Making my way through the slippery rocks down to the water trail- all isolated, to capture this scene to the fullest; I decided that this click would be etched in my memory forever.

Location: Western Ghats, Kerala, India
