We could not wait to post this picture.
We were driving back from Mysore to Bangalore in the morning today. It had rained heavily on the previous night. The fields looked fresh as if they had taken a good shower!
We found this lovely landscape on the way to Bannur. This region is considered as "Rice bowl" of Karnataka. The paddy crop is ripening and getting ready for harvesting. When it is time for harvesting, the paddy fields turn golden yellow. The fields provide a beautiful contrast to the green colour of trees, grey flowers of Sugarcane and blue sky above.
You will find such lovely landscape if you are driving during this time of the year in and around Mysore, Coorg and in Malnad region. Look out and enjoy these lovely colours.
