Skywatch Friday-Sunset at Dandeli

The best place for sunset in Dandeli is probably the view point near Old Magazine house. But unfortunately I couldn't view sunset from there. Our hosts at Dandeli Jungle camp sent us to another resort in the area, known as Kadu Mane and from here, we walked to a nearby view point, known as Huli Gudda (Tiger Hill- this is located in a private property and naming was done by property owners- you won't find this place on google). From here we saw the sunset. Couple of trees were blocking the view, but I decided to use them in the frame instead of complaining.

Below are some of the sunset photos clicked from Dandeli, Karnataka. Hope you like them
 
Meanwhile need to say a thing or two about this little kid. He studies in 6th standard and was assigned the task of leading us to the view point. He was carrying a bag, which we thought was his school bag. However, when we asked him what he is carrying in his bag, we were in for a surprise. He had the full first aid kit- bandage, pain killer spray, cotton and so on. He was fully prepared and trained to treat his guests should they suffer a fall or any other injury. His name is Sanjay or Sanjeev, unable to recall fully. He has bright future for sure.

Standby for sunset pics clicked at Gokarna and Mullayanagiri
