Postcards from Kerala

kerala, tourism, photography, cheap travel

This is my city. Enjoy the postcards from my city

Isn’t these beautiful postcards inviting enough to visit Kerala?!

[ If you want any of these postcards, check the About page ]

Continuing the #KeralaMillionReasons post.

You don’t have to buy postcards from Kerala as souvenirs, because it is easy for you to make yourself with your own pictures. Just make sure you have your camera with you whenever you travel in Kerala.

Here are my favourite postcards from Kerala.

Paddy fields are so amazing in the first ray of the day. They have a golden touch to it. So last but not the least, my favourite postcard entry among all. This picture you have been seeing in all the #KeralaMillionReason posts. Now you know the reason. It is my favourite!

    why not lots of yellow sun out in some of the pictures, fixing it on the bathroom will relax the bathroom visitors and make the time in the bathroom more interesting.

      Dharmadam island is not a popular tourist spot yet, even though it has made it into many lists of better touristy spots.
      You have to reach Thalaseery,Kannur from Kochi. From there you can take a bus, auto or taxi.
      Thanks again 🙂

            That’s a good choice too. So do you use any wide angle or prime lens. My next target is a 50mm f1.4 along with 70-300.

            December 9, 2014

            18-55 mm is my wide angle. I don’t have any other lenses other than these 2. Yea, I also want to buy one 50mm prime.
