Belur -Halebeedu Bike ride...

Six bikes one ride..........


This what I love about travel-difference..Last time it was sea by the side,now its lush green paddy fields.











Hide the sun.















The intricate stone sculptures of Halebeedu.














Can spend days togather just to undersatnd the imagination of the sculptors and what they are trying to say.They are not just some random stone carvings .Each has a theme or story behind it.By the way thats us bikers.












This is the last leg of the travel and only 3 of us went for it.We followed the beautiful sky and the rugged road to ...........










........reach this amazing waterfall.











Will post the infamous naked god Gomateeshware and other photos from the same ride in a few days..

Beautiful photos, especially the waterfall. I bet you were all covered with the red dust from the road afterwards ;).

Wow. You are so lucky you get to travel as often as you do. That road looks pretty cool- the rust color is really nice.

thanks for sharing!

@arun:Now u have :-).Just kidding man.It doesnt mean anything .I just typed wat came at that time.Thats all.


@nicola: Kind of.But unfortunately we did not get much time to spend at the water fall.It was getting dark and I need to come to work the next morning.We were more than 300ks away.So that was sad else could have camped there for the night.

@fingerett:I don know if I am.I do make some compramises for my travel.My carrer to some extent etc.But travelling means a lot to me so I am ok....

@dia:yeh calm dowm.I also freak out like this at times when I thing abt the places I need to visit and thinking of not having time..its okkkk.will happen :-)

@outdoor:Honestly.. I knew you would like that photo when I posted it only.

Very interested in those stone carvings. Amazing work of art! How do you study them? i mean do you have guide ?

All really lovely shots, hope to see more of it :)

Blogger backpack_everyday said...

@Kris:Yeh thats my name.Those carvings are really fascinating.First u take a guide to get some info abt the history of the place and temple.Then we can be on our own and spend hours togather just trying to make connections and interpretations abt the sculptures and stories they represent..

Ancient cultures had this specifically way to show and remember their stories, every single sculpture, every single carving has its meaning, and that's awesome!!! they were completely artists, they could capture the way to show their meanings, their believes, their history!! it's amazing!!! Awesome photo serie!!! i love them all!!!! :D
