The alarm woke me at 5:15 am. It took 15-20 minutes for me to get ready; I put my camera backpack and tripod bag on my shoulder and marched out to conquer the world.

The first thing that hit me was the chilling wind. I braved the cold winds and soon reached the hillock, which was about a 5 minute walk. It was pitch dark up there, and as I had not previously seen the place, I did not know what lay ahead. The sounds of rustling in a nearby bush got my serious attention.

I had no choice but to come back later, better prepared. I took a note that I needed to buy a woolen cap. With a heavy heart I went back to the apartment.

I woke up again at 8:30 am to glorious sunshine. The view from the room was beautiful. I forgot about the early morning incident and grabbed my camera.

I went out to have a quick look at the hillock. It was plain grass ground surrounded by a beautiful view. Purchasing a cap was all that was left for me to do before tomorrow morning's photo session.

We decided to leave for sightseeing by 10:00 am, but with a three-year-old child, it is often difficult to be punctual. We managed to leave the resort at 10:30 am.

The road we were travelling on was in very bad shape, and the heavy road repair work was slowing our progress.

On the way to Talacauvery at Bhagamandala, a procession by devotees of Swami Ayyappan was passing by. I had a wonderful opportunity to take a few photos.

We crossed Bhagamandala with the intention to visit on our return.
