Dawn comes early in Munnar though the sun struggles to show its face through the clouds and rain. For a photographer, it is new opportunity every minute. Looking out of my window the 'blue hour' really was blue, but the colours keep shifting every moment.
You can get three shots for Rs.10 so we decided to try it. I good-humouredly told the boy that both of us would take a chance on the condition that I'd get a refund if I shot all three. My son missed three and I hit the target two out of three times. As I was loading up for the last shot the 'target range owner' asked me if he could give my last pellet to my son. Perhaps he took me too seriously!
If you go right you supposedly reach a view point (to which you have to climb down a bit) from where you can see the Kolukkumalai peak and one of the highest located tea estates in the world.
The road after the check post goes to Vattavada village. There is something mentioned about the "highest road South of Himalayas" but it has been erased for some reason!
